Black, white and red Christmas

I thought I'd make another card for my CHNC challenge 32 - the challenge this week is to use black, white and one other colour - if you haven't yet started your Christmas cards, now would be a good time and why not choose a colour scheme for this challenge?

It's a very simple card. I stamped a newly-acquired Kanban stamp with versamark and heat embossed with white detail power. The black shape is a Kanban Elizabethan stackable - I got lots of sets of stackables with ten sheets of clear stamps from QVC. I'm a bit disappointed though because the stackables don't all layer well - although there are some the same shape they don't leave the same amount of space around, so I opted to stick my black stackable on to a piece of white card and cut out by hand. The sentiment was produced on my dymo letratag. The embossed card blank is 7 x 5.

I'm linking this for these challenges:
