Clean and Simple Christmas

Yes, you heard me, Christmas. :)
I should point out that I am not normally a remotely organised person and in fact I usually end up running around making my Christmas cards at the last minute. But... as soon as I saw the new Holly digi image from Rebecca Sinz, I couldn't help but think what a fabulous Christmas card it would make. So I went ahead and made one: :D

It's such a striking image (I love the way Rebecca draws faces, and her moody, gothic style) so I decided to keep the card itself quite clean and simple.  I coloured the image with my Promarkers...

... and trimmed it to a rectangular shape and then cut two more rectangles of the same size from white card and embossed them with a snowflake embossing folder. I attached the three panels to a sideways DL card blank using foam tape and then cut a title from red cardstock using my Cameo.
And that was my clean and simple - but striking - Christmas card. And at least come December this year, I'll have *one* card made in advance! :D
