Here it is. My first entry. I struggled with the colors. Still not sure about the ice blue in the bg. What you you think?

My hubby says the lowercase "T" looks too much like an "F". Men... Okay, he may have a point, but I can't find a better one yet.

I don't mind the lowercase "t" as much as the uppercase "F" in "From". For some reason, the main card is really "readable" to me, but the address label isn't. As for the ice blue, it doesn't show up at all on my laptop monitor, but that's probably because of the monitor calibration. Clever concept though. :)

I keep going back and forth... It's masculine enough for Men's stationery?

Very fun, Amy! I originally thought the background was white....which I think would be very striking with the black type and the accented colors you've used. I think this could work very well for men and women. The only thing I see would be to maybe make the "from" smaller on the address label...but otherwise, the concept is fantastic! Great work as always!

Very clever! I like it :) I agree that the from should be a little smaller.

I love this design! I wonder what the card would look like with a white background? The green is a great color choice, it really makes the card pop. Great use of fonts! =)

Thanks for the kind remarks! I really wanted to go all white for the bg, but it's just a tad too plain or something's off... I can't really put my finger on it. But if the client so desires a white bg, it's 1 delete button away. =)
