Thanks for the advice - I've stuck to two colours and added a letterpress feel - is it better?

The letterpress element looks really cool! And nice change with the type.

I've added some colour now. Is it better or worse?

The red definitely adds punch! The green, not so much for me. I wonder if you made all the grey text green or just use grey instead of green, if it would work better? Also, I think another script font would work better with the typewriter. Perhaps something a bit more stamped looking, like Archive Penman Script or similar.

I really like the simplicity of the design, too. I might give one of the elements a red/brown or green color - maybe just the stamp or just "Vintage Christmas Party". I wouldn't change much though!
