Quick die cut poll. I'm liking the die cuts with this design. Which one do you prefer for voting?

I like B... or even the simplicity of A. :)

I voted C, but A was second. The think with B & D is that the design doesn't extend into the corners. With C it does and fills the die.

I voted C: I like the contrast between the more "structured" shape of the die-cut & the more playful foil border.

A! I don't think it needs a die. The movement in the illustration stands out best with the clean lines in my opinion.

A I think... Maybe scale the tinsel down a bit?

I voted C because I think the silver and that photo work really nicely together, and also when I think of tinsel, I always think of the classic silver tinsel we used to use.

I voted for A because I like the warmth of the color, but any of the color ways work. I'm wondering how it would look if you enlarged the tinsel so it bleeds off the edges, rather than almost touching. Just a thought.

Hi Lisa, congrats on your first foil entry, it's very appealing! I like all of the photo/foil pairings but finally am going with the photo/foil pairing on C. The brushy photo frame is cool, too. Nicely done!

I chose C. The silver is a little more unique and I like that the text is the same color. It doesn't take away from the photo, which is the main focus.

I voted A, but C was really close! I agree with Amy to try scaling back the tinsel... maybe make it look a bit more sparse, so it isn't as heavy? So pretty!

I chose A, you can put alternate color ways in your comments.

So pretty! I love C. It almost feels like frost to me :) I might make the type one or two points smaller so there was a touch more breathing room around the edges in the white. And maybe add a small amount of extra tracking to the lowercase letters to match the feel of the uppercase ones.

Polling for best photo and foil combo. Also any other feedback is welcome (my first foil entry).
