"Christmas greetings from Koala Base"

The base card and leaf background paper are in typical eucalyptus tree colours. The bright red flowers around the border are red flowering gums which are out in bloom at this time of year."

The Christmas card is made in layers using stock card, scrapbooking paper, Spectrum logo jpg, Wordart, rubber stamps, corner paper punch and art pens."

This is a Christmas card that Gerry Anderson Productions sent out in 2003 to some of the investment brokers who marketed the New Captain Scarlet CGI series and a selected few of the investors. In the voice balloon, Scarlet is saying, "This is the last time I let you brief me when I'm drunk, Gerry."
