Christmas time is a huge holiday for cards and tags and it's always easier to have a simpler design for the masses. This card was pretty easy to put together and helped me focus on the colors and the ability to make 10 of these cards in one quick shot - or 20 depending on your family size ; ).
I think that a key to designing a clean card is to really focus on those design elements and principles. Just think basic art class - balance, color, texture.. The clean cards manage to bring that simple, not overly embellished design back and again can allow you to make multiple cards in one sitting.
Well that's all I have for today. I hope you join me again for a lesson on how to make a beautiful set of note cards using this c&s idea.
