Okay, this is the start of a metallic card collection that I will complete. I will post all five as I am using 5 different embossing folders, (probably)....They are soooooo neat. I am using Graphix Metallic Foil Posterboard. I used a few emerald adhesive back sparkles to give it some "POP".....I am really enjoying making these......I did not think I would be making christmas cards this early in the season....but the embossing folders came out and I had challenges to complete for August....so these worked out just fine.....Wow.....I can say when I complete all five (5) sets, that I have officially completed most of my xmas cards.......All I need to do after this is address them and mail them out......

A lot of you have asked about the Metallic paper I used for this card collection....I purchased the 10 sheet paper pack from ACM.....It comes in 5 colors (2 sheets of each) red, blue, green silver and gold. It is 10x13 and about 65-70 ld weight paper....About the thickness of a really good quality CS...It is about the thickness of a regular posterboad....So, it is very easy to work with....My Purple Cow Trimmer cuts it like "butta"...So does the Cuttlebug for that matter.....The best part about it is, it is only cost .........drum roll...please .......$5.59 for the 10 sheet pack.....I am averaging either 2 -6x6 cards, using the excess for embossing or 4 5x5 cards from each sheet....So....this works for me..... UPDATE..... A few of the ladies from the Cricut MB went online to the Grafix website and found the 10 pack for $4.59 and a 25 pack assorted for $9.99. S/H was $7.50.......So if you cannot find this at ACM...check this Grafix website out.
