Um - Amazeballs :) The type updates are perfect! This is super picky but I might just bring the type up a nudge or two.

Oh, this is so fun! Awesome work! I like it as-is, but wonder what it might look like if the background blue was just sliiightly lighter. It might help the type and characters pop out just a tad more. But really, I think it is just great as-is!

these characters are hilarious :) I went back and forth between the two, but I ended up choosing A because I like the triangle effect that happens with the white on either side of your copy and the white of the middle guy's hat feather. I think if you end up going with A you could even increase the size of the ornaments on either side of the text!

I love this design. The background color is spot on. My only change would be the arm of the guy in the middle, since they are nutcrackers, I think it shouldn't stick out to the side at all, it should only go up and down like the other ones do, keeping the rectilinearity of each individual will just make it that much stronger. Minor comment, but it's the only one I have!

Great design! I would suggest maybe making the skin tones different shades so you have more of a variation between them. Maybe even with the hair colors as well (the white) and maybe making the one with the single gingerbread hold it with his left hand since the other guy is holding it with his right as well
