Thank you all for your suggestions with how to handle the personalization. I ended up deciding on one line and color in order to keep the original design's simplicity. I hope you're still fond of this little Frenchie!

I voted for personalization, but it's very dark. Cute!

I didn't vote because I think you could go either way, but I agree with Laura about the bottom line being too dark. If it's hard to read on-screen, it will likely be near impossible to read when printed (that's been my experience anyway). I would go with the aqua or tan from your illustration, instead. Super cute!

I like it both ways,totally love it,but if you choose B,use the gold for the personalization,it's a winner for sure!

I love the simplicity of A, did you think to personalize with the name of the recipient instead? "Je t'aime {name of recipient}." in white instead of having the darker line underneath - because the person sending the card will probably be signing the inside of the card anyway. Just a thought! Absolutely love this illustration, it's just so cute!

That sure is a lovely Mister cat :D, I love how geometric it is! A guy like me would love getting this card from a special someone. It's simple and masculine, Submit a female one too!

I love the colors, perfect for boys. I would definitely add personalization since Minted's customers are looking for custom cards.

Stunning! I like the colors and that they are not valentiney. As for personalization, I am unsure, I would not which way to go.

No personalization like it this way. Colors nice as they are but you might try a bit of color to see how you like it?

Like it better with no personalization, would clutter a pleasing design. You might try some muted color just for fun to see how you like it.
