i'd go with everything grouped together at the bottom in option B but maybe play around with different colors so you can get rid of the white stripe behind your text. it would be stronger without it :)

Hi Marie :) I'm not sure you need the white strip under the type? If the type isn't showing up well enough over just the photo itself, you could try a transparent/white gradient over the bottom of the photo for a softer look. I'd make "a blessed year" larger and make your red colour brighter so it really pops over the black and white photo.

A for sure! I might consider scaling a blessed year up.

Welcome to Minted, Marie! I think the two elements you have are nice, but feel a little disconnected. You may want to consider just maybe the strip at the bottom? That would give the design the flexibility to work with more photos.

Welcome to Minted! Your design is very cute. I like how simple and classic it is. However, I think the phrasing in the top corner is lost in the design. It might be too small. Maybe have "blessed" slightly bigger and maybe titled a little to sort of overlap the other two words. Play around with those words a bit to try to get them more noticeable and more connected to the rest. Love where you're going with this.

Hi Marie! What if you added a design element to the "A blessed year"? Such as a snowflake, an ornament, a star, something delicate to go along with your design. It would be a movable object and work with many photo, depending on a minted customers choice.
