comments from the designer:

Inspired by the lyrics, “He’s making a list and checking it twice / Going to find out if your naughty or nice.” Elf Inspector #25 has performed his due diligence on behalf of Santa and put his stamp of approval on the card stating, “Santa has checked his list twice and found this family to be nice.”

Love the overall design. Not diggin the authenticity idea of the stamp... maybe something more universal like a date stamp... I don't get It. Perhaps get a few more opinions.... =D

I love the visual design of this card along with the lighthearted nature of the stamp. I think the 'authenticity' thing might work if the other copy is reworked a bit - not sure if anyone ever really regifts a holiday card, so this doesn't ring true, but perhaps there is another statement that the Elf inspector could be making with the stamp of authenticity that is equally lighthearted? Love the overall concept.

Thanks so much for your feedback, Amy and Mariam! I was a little worried that the authenticity stamp might not read well, but I thought I'd give it a shot. I reworked the wording to still play on the stamp of approval concept while keeping it lighthearted and fun.

Wow. Love the change to a "stamp of approval". Very Clever!

I really like the simplicity of the design. Can't read the smaller print but think the stamp is great.
