I personally prefer blue and white combination with perhaps a hint od brown for my Christmas cards but several of our relatives and friends are more traditional so I always try to make few cards using the classical reds and greens.
Polka Dot green - Imaginisce - Snowy Jo
Red (embellies) - Teresa Collins - Christmas Circle
Stamp: Heidi Grace
For the second card I made, I wanted design that is simple and easy to make, yet somewhat different and interesting.
Red edged paper - Cosmo Cricket - Hello Sunshine
Circle (for embellishement) - Teresa Collins - Christmas Circle
Green Snowflakes - Imaginisce - Snowy Jo
