Wow, I love where you took it with the fonts. I think this looks stunning, as-is. Out of curiosity only, I would maybe try one more with the same font as used on the "jackson square creative"? Honestly though, if you keep it where it is, I think it looks great. :)

Have you thought about changing this to a foil? I think silver foil would be so much more festive and pop. The gray seems a little somber. Love the geometric snowflake! Super cool!

HI Taryn, I think this looks great!Only thing I might change would be to up the stroke on Jackson Square Creative. But either way, it looks great!

B :) The revisions to your type are really working! It might be an idea to thicken up your strokes even a bit more, "A wonderful" reads quite well, but "holiday season" is still feeling a little lost in your background graphic.

I like this one best

B for me. The simplified type really helps!

A. I find it a bit easier to read than B or C, but I also think it has a more playful quality.

C for me, I like the way this one reads (it's crazy how much the styling of type can alter the way you read the same line!)

C! I would add a little more tracking to Jackson Square Creative :)

I actually feel like simplifying a bit and using all one font, but different weights would be even stronger than mixing the fonts. The background has so much movement I think a clean san serif font would be perfect on its own.

Try experimenting on a different font for the greeting. It looks a little too plain. Maybe try a script font.

Love the changes to the snowflake Taryn. I think you need to experiment with the text a bit more though. I think it could look great if you used a combination of fonts. I would break it into "wishing you" "a" " wonderful" "holiday season" and see how that looks.

Taryn, the white text is a little hard to read. Have you considered doing the snowflake in white and making the text charcoal? I would also increase the tracking.

You're missing the family name and the message being all spread out is a little choppy.

The type is a little hard to read with the colors and it being spread out so much. I think it's a good start but may need to be re-worked a bit

I love it. It could be a framed pies of art. The positioning of Type doesn't bother me. But I wonder if the outline to the type Might look better in a blue of the card but just a value or two darker
