Blue and Silver Christmas Card

I broke out my Cricut again this week so that I can join in the fun at the Fantabulous Cricut challenge.  The challenge this week is "beyond red and green."  The challenge is to make a Christmas card using any other color, aside from red and green.

I decided to use blue and silver for my card.  I made a window card out of blue cardstock (cut from Cricut Christmas Cards cartridge -- I cut the decorated edge at the bottom of the card off so that my card base will stand flat).  I covered the window with acetate, although it may be hard to see that in the photo.


The word "Merry" is cut from Joys of the Season Cricut cartridge on dark blue cardstock.  The sentiment "Merry Christmas" is from Stampin' Up's Teeny Tiny Wishes stamp set, stamped on dark blue ink on white cardstock.  The white cardstock was punched with Stampin' Up's Word Window punch.  The same dark blue cardstock was punched using the Modern Label punch, also from Stampin' Up.

Here is the inside of the card:


I cut the tree from the Joys of the Season cartridge on white cardstock.  I inked up the edges using silver ink (Inkadinkado), and drew ornaments using silver and dark blue Stickles.  I also used the same silver Stickles to color the star and the tree trunk.  The tree was popped up using Stampin' Dimensionals.

Full supply list:
Turquoise, dark blue, and white cardstock (Recollections)
Silver and dark blue Stickles
Teeny Tiny Wishes stamp set (Stampin' Up)
Night of Navy ink (Stampin' Up)
Acetate
Word Window punch (Stampin' Up)
Modern Label punch (Stampin' Up)
Cricut cartridges (Christmas Cards, Joys of the Season)

Does the card look Christmas-y enough, even if I didn't use any red or green on it?  What do you think?

Thanks for looking, and have a great day!
