Today I have a quick holiday card to share that I made for the Sizzix blog, featuring an adorable new stamp and matching die set by Tim Holtz called Retro Christmas.

And do you remember me saying how I’ve been crushing on the color gray lately? Well I found more here for this card. This is Little Yellow Bicycle’s Making Merry collection. Loving the gray paired with black and traditional Christmas red. And bonus points that this card may….just may….be flat enough for mailing in a regular envelope.
