I feel like it is missing something... Is it too plain?

i think this is a nice start! i would try and play with the size of "celebrate the season" and maybe even reverse it as far as color goes. i can totally see this with big lettering that bleeds off the side and has lots of gorgeous white space. push it a little further and i think you've got something ;) good luck!

I agree with Jennifer - I think you have a great start - and I love the idea of letting the text bleed off the sides! You have to be careful with any of the letterpress elements overlapping digitally printed elements... so you don't want the letterpressed text to touch the photo area. If you put a white background behind the text, that extended beyond the text outline so that there was a bit of a border/buffer between the text and the photo, that would work. I hope that makes sense!
