i think you worked it out, Erin! Hey, if you don't mind one more suggestion, and I don't know if you have this little guy in your kit of photos, but I think a photo with red in it could pull the right and left sides together for you.

Hi Erin, if it were mine, and I am an advertising person, and I approach everything like ad copy, here's where I would go: I treat every day like Christmas. Space. I'm too excited to Sleep the night before." You want to break your words where a person actually takes a breath. Try to get words like "every day" on the same line. I may also rework the first line - instead of "I treat" the baby might say, "Every day is like Christmas to me." or To me, every day is like Christmas. Just my two cents here. I voted B, BTW.

I voted B, though the other options are great too! The red heart and border pop on the crisp white background. :)

I like the way this is evolving, Erin, and I voted for B because it's very simple and fresh. And, I completely agree with Carol's suggestions about line breaks. Great work!

I still like A but b is nice too. Carol has some really smart suggestions. She voiced what I couldn't put my finger on. Some slight word changes could really simplify the copy.

I like B here, the white is really nice and I like how the heart it the same color as the border. That second line down feels a little crowded with the capital C in Christmas and the tall "h", I think that's why I fell it could be nudged a bit more to the right.

I love the red in A, but I voted B. It's clean and easy to read the copy, which is, of course, the best part of this card! :)

Aww, you got rid of the inner box. This is still very lovely though :) I went with B. I like A as an alternate colorway but the dark text in B is a nice contrast to the red & white and helps anchor the text for me. The white feels more... float-y? I'm making up words, don't mind me.

I still really like A - maybe make the heart the darker color so it's more of an accent and doesn't stand out as much?

I chose A as I like the contrast of the red block of color with the photo. My second option would be B. I love the copy, so clever!

My initial instinct was A, but seeing these side by side, I think B reads a little more naturally. :)

B seems easier to read, but I do like the darker heart in A. It might just be me, but I feel like the lines "Day Like" and "Before" need to be nudged to the and don't think you need the period after "before"--even thought I know it's a sentence. Cute copy!

So cute! I like the little grid in A, but just wondering if the text would breathe better without the border on that one? You could put the "welcomed by" back on 2 lines maybe? If you want to keep the border, then I'd say B is good to go! :)

A: I like the outer frame as it's just enough detailing to bring out the block of text but then I also like the inner box around the details to help break down all the text. Gives the eye a break :)

Oh my gosh that copy is amazing! I love the frame in A. it all feels really polished. I'm also wondering if it would help to bring in more of the dark color - maybe the heart or the lines around the measurements could also be in the dark?

I'm going with C on this. I feel like the text is a little too close to the frame. I would close up some of the space between text elements or make it all a bit smaller if possible.

Ha! Great copy, and so true. I chose B because it's the simplest and I like the info organized at the bottom. Everything feels a little close to the top of the design maybe?
