I love the design, but I would like to see a little more variation in the type. All of the type is similar in size. Maybe make the date/location info smaller. Also, the artwork gets a little close to the edges. Might look better if the art was moved in more or a little smaller.

I agree about the type, making the date and location smaller would help, maybe track out the sans serif a bit also.

The florals and color choices are really nice, and I agree with others comments regarding typography. Playing with text size, a mix of upper and lowercase maybe and increasing tracking. Also wondering what it would look like if the emphasis was on "friendsgivig" vs join us.

"Friendsgiving" I love the message The font is a little hard to read though and for such a great thought wouldn't want it to be missed.

I agree about the comment about "Friendsgiving" The "F" and the "r" seem to blend together making it a bit difficult to read. Love the colours.

I really like this. It makes me feel warm - it's very inviting. And the design is why. Super job!

I love the beauty and formality of it. You may want to try a less casual and weightier font for "Friendsgiving".

I love the artwork on this! I think the font used for Friendsgiving is a bit jarring since it contrasts so sharply with the clear, bold lines of the other fonts

I know you were heavily inspired by this design from Rifle Paper Co. It is indeed beautiful, but I highly suggest that you come at this design again. It is way too similar to Rifle's design and I would hate for them to come after you for copyright infringement. I suggest that you change colors, the layout and fonts to pull away from their design. See the link below of their design. https://www.paperlesspost.com/cards/category/christmas_invitations?page=2&card=23754

oh I agree with Nicole, it seems too similar.. I'd change the orange to another color & maybe try still using the flower at the top of the card, then "join us" under it (instead of on top)? best of luck!

Hi Jessica, Have you tried running a test print? The bottom text seem a little large. Lovely botanicals!

This is awesome, I love that bouquet in the background. I think the bottom text could be reduced in size to make even more of a hierarchy. I think a cool idea to try would be to make the "JOIN US" text overlap the flowers in places.
