A for me :) You could try going a little bigger with the copy even.

I like A, and the slight tilt goes nicely with the cute bear.

Marina - I chose option A, I think the greeting at the top, in between the snowflakes works really well. Best of luck to this super cute design!

A for sure! Also maybe you could experiment with bumping the text up just a size or two to make better use of the space. Gorgeous illustration!

Such a great concept! I might even try it without any strokes around the lines in the tree. I think D is my favorite colorway though I like A a lot as well. I might also move the name to under the greeting. It's getting a bit lost in the tree. Or maybe even try making the white ribbon just a bit wider/taller so there was more space for the name?

This layout is stronger with etc wording on a diagonal. Really cute little guy!

so super cute! I like C - though I kind of wish the text filled the space even more. Maybe he could hold a sign of sorts? Or maybe just some great hand lettered feel to the type filling in his belly?

C or D for me, going to have to be D I think just because the dark type holds up a bit better. Maybe you could try a few different placements for the greeting (ie above the bear, on the scarf, centered at the bottom) and do a poll? Your illustration is really cute, the background has a great texture going, but I feel like your type is still a little unresolved.

What do you think? My first decision was black, now maybe I like blue more. But I am not still sure ..

really tough decision here! Both look great, but after going back and forth I landed on the black. I think it just fits in better being on the polar bear's tummy, near the other black elements of the image. I might reconsider the placement of the texts though, I'm not entirely sure where to put it on the page, but maybe play around a little with it.
