My favorite inspiration for Christmas cards this year has been Minted. Their designs are so amazing and fresh.
I loved this card the moment I laid eyes on it:
and made my own version, using Papertrey Ink stamps:
To give dimension, I heat-embossed some of the elements with white embossing powder and stamped the rest with a white ink onto the grey base. I mounted the grey piece onto a white card-base. I prefer writing inside a white card, instead of smudging a white gel pen on a dark paper (being left-handed has its challenges...)
My favorite thing about this card is that it is completely flat - so perfect for mailing!
Have a great weekend, all.
