A for me - I think the modern feel of the sans serif font works well and the black type helps it to stand out :)

A - I would just make the bottom greeting a smaller point size. Nice job.

I chose B, Kailyn, I like this type better and I like the type in one of the colours from the rest of the design, but I'm wondering if you've tried it in the blue or red? I think those would pop a bit more than the yellow. Otherwise I think I'd like A better. Have you tried the bottom line in all caps and at a smaller size?

I like B! I think you could even put the Happy Holidays and Minted-2016 all on one line.

they are all really nice, but I think i prefer B, the scripted font you've chosen really goes well with snowflakes and it looks nicer without all of the extra text at the bottom.

I like B with the least amount of type.

B! That texture is wonderful. I might just move the point of the angle under the star a bit to the right so it didn't feel quite so much like it was leaning :)

I voted B - but I think you should use the same font for the "happy holidays" and the "minted - 2016" part.

I think the smaller type in option C works best.

I voted for D. I prefer the smaller font. You could even do it a notch or two smaller.

I would simplify the text in black to something that fits on one line like "happy holidays". That would give you more space to move the peace, joy and love down just a bit away from the snowflakes.

I like D the best, I like the way the message is thinner, so it doesn't take away from the pretty snowflakes and corresponding text. Great revisions!

Beautiful snowflakes! C feels like a good balance to me. I might also play with the type for peace love and joy - maybe something not quite as tall? or maybe even a script?

I voted D. I like the snowflakes, and the "peace joy love" portion, but I think I'd consider making the text smaller, and spacing it out a lot more - increase the tracking to maybe 100 or 200?

I like the lighter type in A. It lets your main greeting stand out more.

I agree with Laura that a shorter greeting would allow your illustration take center stage. Either that or make the black text even smaller and maybe track it out.

Kailyn, I like the three colors and the snowflakes matching the words. I think it would be stronger if the text were centered, the "Joy" being off center is distracting. What if each word were centered under its cooresponding snowflake?

Maybe have all 3 snowflakes the same size and center each word; peace love joy,under each snowflake so it doesn't look off balanced.

I second the comments about centering the text underneath each snowflake. I also might increase the kerning in the script text, or try a different font that spreads a little more horizontally. It feels a little smushy and hard to read right now, but I definitely think you're on the right track! :)

PEACE, JOY and LOVE seem to be a little off center, maybe move the PEACE to be exactly underneath the blue snowflake and do the same with JOY and LOVE. I think adding a year would be great as well

I like the font combo and the colors! I would try and center the text with the snowflakes too, maybe making "peace" and "love" a bit smaller to match their respective snowflakes.

Kailyn what if you tried a different front (not script) for the wishes part? Just to make it a little easier to read.

I quite like your font choice for Peace Joy Love (but it might work to center them over the snowflakes better). I think a similarly modern sans serif typeface for the black greeting could look really sharp!

Love the font combo! I agree with others that it would be nice to see the snowflakes centered above each word

nice design! I think centering the words under their corresponding snowflake will be a great idea. Also the message font seems too much with the design--i suggest a non-script font.
