comments from Lehan:

A multiple photo Christmas card inspired by Rossetti's 1885 Christmas hymn. This hymn shows how incarnate love descended to Earth and was heralded by a star and angels on Christmas day.

Thanks for the feedback on color, everyone! And thanks for the feedback on the angel wings, Chris! My husband wasn't a fan of the wings either, and I think your feedback tipped the scales to change it to something else. :)

Can't decide on red or blue for voting purposes. Any preferences? Thanks! :)

I'd say blue for voting. Red as a colorway for sure, but those photos work nicely with the blue for voting purposes.

I think I like the blue best. Not sure about the angel wings. I think maybe a more simple wing might be worth a try. Just a thought. Type is wonderful! Photos are great too.

I love the blue, picked B! I'm not sure if you need the 'Love' and 'Sign' on top and bottom curved, since everything else is straight?

So pretty! I feel like the lines around "was born at" divide up the space a little much. Maybe no lines? or maybe more padding and end the top line before the e's swash? I'm not sure lol
