Merry Christmas, clean and simple style

Today, I have another clean and simple Christmas card using the latest stamp set from Avocado Arts.  We all have so many cards to give and send out during the Holidays, so I like to keep them more on the simple side.  Why?  Because most people trash them.  I like to save my fancy cards, for those who will cherish the card.  But, for the most part, they are clean all the way baby.
The card is 5 1/2 x 4 1/4 inches (standard size card), and I started by just adding two strips of washi tape to the left hand side.  I then stamped the banner strip, and ornaments and colored them in using Copic markers that coordinated with the washi tape (easy right).  Then finished by adding the sentiment as well as some thick twine.  Cute and easy, not to mention another Christmas card stashed in my basket of cards ready for use.
Head on over to these fantastic ladies, for more inspiration!!
