I went with B both because I think it goes great with your photo and I think the paw print stands out really well.

Cute! I'm choosing B, I like the paw to be the same color as the rest of the word but that you used 2 colors in the design… although the monochromatic look of A is nice too.

Nothing is a deal breaker for me here. They all look great but I opted for the green type cuz it seemed freshest to me.

I like C with the two colors up top. I might even play around with some non-traditional colors if you have a chance. The headline already says christmas on its own, so I think some unexpected colors might make it more unique.

I love the graphic nature of Boston Terriers (French Bulldog?) So I would go with A. I also prefer that layout.

B for me. I might make the pawprint pads a little rounder so they look as much like a dog print as possible?

Very clever message! I especially love the paw! The only thing i find a little off is the photo choice. Don't get me wrong, the dow is ADORABLE. However, the crop of the photo, along with the white space on the sides give it a weird balance. I suggest another photo, or stretching the photo all the way to the border of the card. Maybe you can do a poll?

Great idea! I really like different framing so I like the photo as is but you could also try making the photo more of a square and putting the family name on the bottom.

This is very cute :) I agree with Angela, that it might be nice to give the photo some white space at the bottom. It feels a little off-center, though part of me struggles with that suggestion because I also think that the off-centered photo adds a fun element. Go with your design gut! :)

I agree with adding some white space at the bottom. But also I'd like to see the "H" in happy be a bit bigger. It seems smaller than the other letters. Overall very cute design!
