GRE tunnel between two switches

Is it possible to create a tunneled node / GRE tunnel directly between two switches? The goal is something like this:

 

vlan 7 ---- swtich A ---- itermediate routed network (no NAT) ------ Switch B ---- vlan 7 (same broadcast domain as the first.

Hi, 

 

ArubaOS-Switch does not support GRE tunnels from switch to switch, only between Mobility controller to switch.

But it looks like VXLAN will achieve my goal similarly?
