It's time for our friendly group to share their Christmas card makes and this week Christine chose the theme of
Now I really struggle with this sort of card design so I'm glad that Christine also put in the caveat of being able to add in a smidgen of colour too.
Here are my two cards using white and silver, hope this is ok Christine?

I used the Memory Box die, Stitched Snowflake Square for both cards and carried on the stitched theme with my square and oval mats. The top card also has some Impression Obsession snowflake dies to accentuate the banner.
