Tone on Tone Cards

I love white on white especially for Christmas cards.
(Note: because I used metallic paper, this did not photograph well and I tried both indoors and out.  I gave up a long time ago trying to get glitter and metallics to show up in photos.)
I made a card like this last year and liked it so well that I remade more like it with a few different variations.  It is so quick and easy, and rather simple, but I like it.
Indoor shot: white with silver matting
Same card shot outdoors
different variations using silver and gold matting
I also made a version in deep red, green, and ivory with metallic gold matting, but I was afraid the photo (and colorfulness) of it would detract from the tone on tone cards, but I like the way it turned out too.
I used my 2 most favorite embossing folders, Cuttlebug's Swiss Dots and the Merry Christmas one is by Sizzix.  The holly sprig is cut from Cricut Joys of the Season and I used metallic silver and gold artboard/posterboard for matting.
I'm going to enter this at The Cuttlebug Spot's Anything Goes Challenge.   I discovered and started "following" T.C.S. back last spring and just a few days later they went into "suspended animation" so I'm glad they're back and I look forward to seeing all the great creations over there.   (Hopefully I won't shut them down again.)
Now go make it a good day for someone else 
and it'll come back to you.
