Love the changes Debb,so sorry to have missed the poll. I apologize for being annoying but,what if you tried it this way: MAY you (in lowercase italics) HAVE JOY IN your (in lowercase italics) LIFE PEACE IN your ( in lowercase italics) HEART SUCCESS IN THE COMING year {in lowercase italics) I think,it would emote minimal elegance :) Good luck!

Simply stated & I really like minimal feel you're going for... Have you tried mixing your condensed type with some serif just for your visual interest,right now,the type is looking stagnant to me,may be have smaller type for e.g "May you have..." in a serif italics so there's an added interest plus it makes it gives a personal touch. I hope I make sense & good luck,this design has potential :)

I prefer both the words you've chosen for version "A" and the spacing of the text (or perhaps it's the size of the font that is larger than in version "B" -? - it can be hard to tell in these relatively small views)...I might even add a bit more line spacing between the "PEACE," "JOY" & "HOPE" sections, to reinforce the nice sense of breathing space you've created...

Very pretty detail! I chose A. I like it justified left, but I'd really work on spacing out those lines equally.

Tough decision! I voted A. I like the size and font of your text best. I think it's a good medium size for the size of the card. And I love the saying! Wonderful!

A: The spacing and font is working best here, but still could use some tweaks to work a bit stronger. Also wondering about a darker background. This color seems somber.

Hi Debb! I like the idea you have going here. I still feel left alignment of the type might work well with the foil graphic. I think it would help pull everything together.

B for me, I like the extra room around your copy :) I think you've colored your text box with the company name in it – if that's on purpose, I'd move the name to be in the center of it.

I like D best, but think it would still be stronger if the right also aligned. What if you brought "in" above "your heart" and changed sizing until "T" in "heart" aligned with the "E" in "Hope" Just a thought to make it that much stronger!

I like A because it's a little more random, I'd try more weight on the large words & fitting the line spacing.

I think option B reads the best and feels the most cohesive. Have you tried reducing the overall type size and left aligning?

D for me, the blank space above the copy provides a nice pause – allows the rest of your elements to be appreciated more.

I picked A for the text layout but I like the white space on top in D! Definitely prefer Enamel to echo the vertical lines in the design.

I love the sentiment you have here. I wonder if it would help to center-align the text so it stacks evenly on top of each other. Right now, it reads in a somewhat stilted way, and that might help unify your text elements. Great start!

Love the new colorway, very contemporary and perfect for the holiday season! I think if the text aligned on to the right it could be stronger and look a little less choppy.
