Contemporary Celebrate the Season

Simple, huh?  Have you noticed a trend with most of my Christmas cards? Yep, they are simple - because I make so many. Cute cards don't have to take hours to create.  Here's another example of a simple card that's sure to impress.  Tips:  1) Although this stamp set has a coordinating set of Framelits, I opted not to use them this time.  I simply stamped the image in Real Red, added a silver 'string' with the marker and a bow and voila!  2)  The dots create a distinct area for the greeting.  I colored in the dots with markers.
