Ok so I'm torn between A & B but chose B in the end. I just love how the photo and your design elements balance out in that option.

I like the design with more breathing room for the design itself, so A. I might even try a version where it goes off the top for comparison. Very nice graphic!

I really like B a lot - I like A as well, but B feels nice with the photo going to the edge. Love the colors!

i like A! have you tried to let the photo go all the way to the edge rather than having the white border around it? :)

The feedback on the first version was so helpful! Here are a few options that I've been playing with to help with breathing room, etc. *Option D is the original design.

I really like the changes you made to C and the negative space. I still like D as well but I would think that C might appeal to more customers. It seems a little more accomodating as far as text personalizations.

I really like C, I voted for it. I like how airy and light it is.

Hi Whitney! After all of that work I think the original (D) is the strongest of the options. I also prefer Ds picture, the blue in it really helps pull out the blue in your design. That said, I do prefer the type of option A, it has more room to breathe. I think if you added a flower on each side of the word "introducing" this would be really nice. I hope this helps!

I agree with Amy, the layout for C is so appealing and has a nice airiness to it- good job!

Hi Whitney, The spacing in C works best. Maybe pull up the floral a bit to give the text some more space. Also I prefer the photo in D, it works well with your floral.

i choose C, but i would consider dropping the frame around the photo, and if your concern is the branch floating in the air (without the frame), i might try and see what it looks like coming from the left (the branch.)

I choose C! But I agree with the comments about removing the frame around the photo.

i like A. have you tried making the photo smaller (maybe just the top half of the vertical layout) and getting rid of the border? that way you have more space at the bottom to play with :)

i love the floral elements, but maybe use just one sprig off to the side (fill it out if need be), to give your lettering more breathing room... great fonts- maybe make "introducing" a tad larger, but play around with it in the larger space :)

I love it! I think the outline around the picture could be a little thinner.

The leading for the last two lines should be thicker. It looks a little cramped. The kerning for "welcomed with love by" and "Daniel & Kelly" might be better if they were the same for both fonts. I might also make the font for the date & weight, and for "Daniel & Kelly" be the same size and weight, to make it a little more cohesive.

I like the color and font choice. I would add some more spacing and maybe vary the ornamental detail a bit.

I agree with the other comments. I also suggest taking away a sprig and spacing everything out.

This is so lovely. I love the fonts and the illustrations. Personally I would tilt the baby so that the baby 's head is at the bottom of photo not at the top of card. I would lighten up the photo to make it softer. Great card and good luck!

I think this is lovely. I agree with Tammy, having two floral elements might be crowding the type. I also think a little more space between the bottom two lines would be nice. Really pretty!
