Is the blue appearing as Navy? Someone commented that the blue does not look Navy, wondering why that might be...

This update looks great! I'd go all the way and make the whole thing foil. It's lovely plus it keeps everything together in case the press shifts and you won't have funky alignment issues. I'd also play with the arch a bit in "a child is born" so it feels more centered between those two lines.

Just a few first thoughts :) The smallest line of text "And the government shall be upon his shoulder" is much smaller than everything else and feels lost to me. I also feel like the line "Name shall be called" would read better as solid filled-in lettering given how much is going on in the card already. A smidge more space between that line and "Wonderful" would help give it room to breathe too. Great start! I am so intimidated to try a type-centric design myself :P

I agree with Ling's thoughts. A few more to add: the G in "Given" looks too much like a C. The foil graphic is really distracting, maybe try a simpler ornament graphic.

I echo Ling & Marta's thoughts. A few places are hard to read, and I feel like the overall text appearance could be unified a little better. But this is a fabulous start! I love it.

Beautiful typography! My first thought would be to add a bit more foil, maybe to the line of text (or two) that you really want to stand out :) Best of luck!

I like the overall composition, but the font selection for "The Prince of Peace " doesnt seem to compliment the rest of the design

I would take away the gold design on the bottom because the type is so complicated (very pretty though) and I might change the blue to a darker navy because that's kind of a rare blue to match any color in a photo

I'd second a lot of what's been said (including it's a great start!) Something else I'd take another look at is the way the 'W' in wonderful is interacting with the line above it. I think a slight reworking of the W, or maybe taking the line above it off a solid baseline, might add to your composition.

I think you've got a lot of great feedback already. I would definitely remove the flourish above the names. It might give you some extra vertical space to play with.

Hi Debb, I agree with Ling that "And the government…" gets a little lost and is hard to read. I also agree with Dawn on the flourishes above the Name shall be.. if they were removed or played with it would give you more space it feels a bit tight in this area. I really love the blue you have chosen with the rose gold such a beautiful combination! I myself struggle so much with typography :( but I think with all the amazing feedback you are getting this will be really amazing!!
