I'm pretty sure I'm combining our holiday card and birth announcement this year. The plan for the card below is taking individual photos of the kids in front of the tree, each holding a letter that spells JOY. What do you think of the design, spacing, font, etc? I'm not 100% happy with this kit - it didn't have a very good pattern IMO that ties all the colors in together. But not sure what I can do about that. I'm going to keep my eyes open for other kits coming out that will maybe work better. Any cc is appreciated!

I think its absolutely perfect! Really I like the three column of text, I like the JOY letters idea and I think it is a great idea to combine the birth announcement and christmas card. Good job!

I really love the design of it, but I am not totally sold on the gray background. I can't decide if that gives it a more modern feel, or if it just feels kinda gloomy. I really love the graphic feel of it!

Thank you, girls! I agree about the gray, Sara. I have a sweater for Nathaniel to wear in front of the tree and it is gray and red. So after I take the photos and plug them in I'll have to see what the whole thing looks like. Also, I may go with a girlyier kit if the baby ends up being a girl.

I definitely think if the clothes match the gray, it will brighten it up quite a bit. You are right, now that i think about it, it's probably the gray in conjunction with the empty black boxes that looks off to me at this point.

What she said!

I love the idea of combining the two!
