I love the design in Option A, but I would combine the 2016 as one unit. The spacing is confusing with the last name in the middle. Other than that It's a beautiful design.

I like the border personally, it gives it more of a postcard look! Looks great!

option A-- having the dots go to the edge of the card give is an extra edge. : )

I LOVE this with the bounding stroke of black around the outside. It feels like all of that glittery goodness surrounding joy is contained, and adds such an elegant flair to your overall design. Well done!

I like B! This is such a beautiful and elegant design. The font color is so close to the gold foil color, well done! I think JOY can be moved to the left just a tad because there is more spacing by the J than there is by the Y and the border

I like full bleed of option A. More impactful.

What if the speckled background tapered off and ended at the middle of joy to look more like snow falling?The confetti / gold / snow effect + year gives it a very fresh, festive "new year" feel :)

I like A, it doesn't need the additional border.

I prefer B. The border seems to balance it out nicely!

I voted A! I love the full bleed. Just let those dots fly off the edge. Beautiful!

This will end up being a hard choice for me, the pol has such close margins. Thank you so much everyone for the input

B ) The composition is working nicely here. Possibly move the family name down a bit.

I prefer this version! I wonder about making the edges of the foil pattern just a tad more "ragged" by not cropping the shapes that lie at the edge...

I really love B. It's very elegant. I feel like the lines dividing the date are a bit too tall though.

voy a escribirte en español porque no se ingles :( pero creo que quedaría mejor si eliminas los círculos del rectángulo para que quede mas natural osea los bordes quedan cortados y a su vez se pierden algunos círculos.

i wish that the speckled background didn't end at a border. I think it would look better if it continued to a full bleed and the only line was at the bottom above the family name
