comments from melissa:

Show off your merry bundle of joy with a fun and elegant hand lettered script. Design was created with a split fountain (two inks in one press pass) method AND blind letterpress in mind.

B but I like it solid red. I don't thing that they can print a gradations on the letterpress parts of the card. There needs to be separation of colors, I think I could be wrong.

You can do a gradient, Carolee with letterpress. Each roller has one color and it creates a gradient effect ;)

B for me. I like that you removed the band of color at the bottom from before =) Feels much more balanced now!

I vote B, but in a solid color. Don't want to overcomplicate things! I think the blind would disappear too much and come across as nothing at first until you looked closer.

I'm pulling more to B. But all of your thoughts would work.

I like the idea of the blind deboss for "merry" but I feel like it needs something to "anchor it", so to speak. When I imagine it blind debossed, the top half feels like it's floating away, if that makes any sense at all =p So with that said, I'm going to go with B for the punch of red =)

I prefer the layout and design of B, but would love to see the word Merry in Red!

PMS 186 is red. However, when exported it looks more pink...

I like B. A seems to heavy on the bottom with the pink border.
