Merry Monday Christmas Card Challenge #101 - Use the colours grey, red and white on your Christmas card.

 The Merry Monday Challenge for this week is to use the colours grey, red and white on your card. It's a very elegant colour scheme so I am sure the gallery will look very 'posh' this week. The design team have certainly made 'posh' cards.


My card today is mostly die cuts again. I just love layers. Both the grey background and scalloped circle are embossed with dots, large and small, both from Cuttlebug. The banner is a vellum I was given in a sample book. Really lovely, it's very white compared to other Vellums, and it is striped. I have white heat embossed it with an old Penny Black stamp (Merry Memories). It is a list of Christmas words. The snowflake dies are from Simon Says Stamp (medium silver) and Memorybox (large grey). The centre snowflake is a Carl punch and the Merry Christmas banner is computer generated.
