Christmas Is Coming...

and you might want to make your own greeting cards.

Here's a tip if you want to gussy up plain envelopes... line them with gold foil. And a really yummy way to get lots of gold foil - for free, sort of - is to eat the large size of Hershey SemiSweet Chocolate bars and save the gold foil wrapper.

I made this autumn card this week for my Mom using metallic maple leaf sequin-type punchies (confetti). I glued a piece of the Hershey wrapper inside the envelope to coordinate with the gold leaves on the tree... looks pretty classy for free, doesn't it!
