About the Design

comments from Lesley:

I wanted my design for the non-foil-pressed 'No business like snow business' corporate card. To be fun and playful but at the same, still have a sense of professionalism about it.

A for me. My only suggestion would be to move the cake up a bit since it seems close to the cut off part. Everything also seems to be leaning towards the lower left part. Maybe bring the greeting up and to the right to even things out. The personalization should also be in some type of text that can be edited if the design is chosen, I'm not sure if hand lettering can be used in the personalization areas

Lovely illustration, I like the b version, nice framing. A looks good as well

I'm going to have to go with A :) I think the sharp corners of B stop the flow you have with your illustration, the rounded corner template may work better? Also I really like the edges without the darker stroke as you tried out in B.

I prefer A. Doesn't need the extra snowflake detail.

really super cute, I think it all comes together well with great composition. My only thing I think seems weird are the red berries just hanging out over the "a" in happy and again next to the company name. Maybe if they were connected to some holly or grounded in some other way, but those two areas are bugging me. Best of luck in the challenge, this is a unique one!

What a fun illustration! Because you've got a lot going on graphically, I might try this design on a simpler die – maybe do a poll?
