The wreath from B would maybe look good in A, too?

A is cute, what about one larger photo on the left side instead of 2 small ones?

Your illustrations are super cute! I'm not sure the fonts you're using complements them, though - maybe a more playful font? I'm wondering how Strangelove or Paris Serif or PaperCute or something else would look? If the "playful" fonts are too much for the design, maybe just a simple san serif font? Those bears are so cute, you probably don't even need the igloo - if you take that out, you could move the photos up and center the type. I think a solid color background would be nice, too. Sorry for all the suggestions - just thinking of ways that you could simplify, so that the focus is on those cute bears and the photos. Welcome to Minted and best of luck!!

Thanks so much for the great advice Kim! I don't have a lot of the fonts though being new. I do love Papercute though. Maybe I will buy that one :)

Molly - I don't think you need to buy a new font, necessarily. Maybe try the simple san serif route first and see how that looks??? I've bought so many fonts, thinking they were perfect for a specific project, and then they weren't, so I'd hate to have you spend money that you don't need to!!! I bet you have some fonts already that would look good. :)

Hello! Welcome to Minted. I agree with Kim that some simplification will help your cute illustrations shine. Good luck!
