Don't shoot me ;) Have you thought about trying this simplified version as a portrait layout with the illo on top and the name tucked underneath it? Might need to make the star a little smaller and bring it down but it might work nicely.

I just tried it again and the shape I have going on the bottom of the robes really looks bad up against a straight edged photo below

That makes perfect sense :) This is still super strong and awesome. A few things to try: I'd make the type a couple points bigger - the lines on the illo are nice and bold and a stronger type would help balance that out. Maybe move the type up so the spacing feels visually similar to the space between the star and the baby. I'd also enlarge the photo to where the dad's head is either the same height as the star or higher. A nice close crop might balance out the weight of the foil.

Oh dear, this is a tough decision. They all would sell so I don't think you can go wrong which ever is decided. I like all of your options, but am going with B. Beautiful work, Becky!

I think A feels the most balanced. I love the window but having two feels like a little too much.

I'm totally torn. I love the windows but B is so clean and modern!

I love the windows just because they feel so different than everything else. for option b I feel like the window get's a little constrained with all the lines and I would try that version with no windows or text and just that gorgeous illo.

Not sure which direction I should go in or if either are working at all. for some reason i'm married to the arced text but I think its limiting my ideas of where to go.

Option A is so unique! I love how it's mirrored like that, and it reminds me of the architecture of a church. I think I would change the photo to one that fits a little better in the frame but other than that I love it!

i like A but maybe try the photo bleeding off the 3 edges (top bottom and right side - leave the left side where it is). i think doubling the shape of your illo isn't necessary and limits the photo options :)

I love the graphic in A! So pretty. I second the idea of trying a different photo.

oh they're so very different. I think A would be the most versatile. Plus I love the designs inside mary and joseph.

Hi Becky, your exquisite Holy Family caught my eye, I love A. As for your statement about being married to the idea of arced text, don't file for divorce just yet! I love the arc. I like B but the solid block of foil needs the design elements of the robes in A. I feel you have a winner either way, good luck!

I love A. The illustration is lovely, and the double arched "windows" are unique and add a nice balance the the design.

This caught my eye again. I think the illustration in A would also stand alone without any text at all - just the message below it. This might work better for the idea you have in B or even with a colorblocked photo.
