Lovely layout, and nice use if foil, but I think the personalized part is missing

This is SO pretty! I choose C since it has the traditional Holiday colors. If you win you could add in the others as additional color ways :)

I think the bright colors of C are really working here :) I might try the 'M' as a small cap too.

I also like your palette for version "B" but chose "C" because the of the added contrast - the colors are eye-catching while still having a lovely, natural feel. Have you by chance tried to continue the "foliage" all the way around, i.e. on the sides as well, maybe even loosely following the curves of the card's die-cut shape?

I like the coloring of D and that would look great with silver foil, but I don't think it works with the phrase since it's more muted than bright. It could work as "winter wishes" or something like that. Regardless, though, make sure to add a spot for a family or business name too :)
