comments from Maren:

In this holiday photo card, hand-drawn design elements allow your photo to play peek-a-boo behind a birch tree. One custom photo highlights smiling faces and the family name and year can be changed to whatever you desire!

Are the little dots after the date too much? Better to leave them out? Also should the gray color be darker (like a dark gray-navy) or lighter? Thanks!

Love the trees and the texture, and I think the color is perfect. I do think you could leave out the dots. Also, I'd add a stroke to the type (year and name) - maybe 0.35 or 0.5? - so it doesn't get lost in the red in printing. Welcome to Minted and good luck!
