You have some great ideas in this design. I might suggest simplifying so that your favorite idea becomes the focus of the piece.

I think it would be cute with the only pattern being the snowflake background. I'd remove the "tape," put the family in the forefront, reduce the size of all the type except Joy of the Season. Good luck :o)

I love all these elements separately but not together. I think you could have one card with the washi tape Polaroids and simple text. One with the fantastic snowflakes you did. And another with the washi tape greeting at the bottom going across a full bleed photo. I think you have some great ideas and are off to a good start. Can't wait to see where you go with this!

Thanks everyone! Once I started think of ways to trim it down... I knew it wouldn't just be one card I would be creating in the process! I'm glad I have some time to really refine my ideas, but thank you all for the suggestions, it always helps!
