Minted: The Sending Good Cheer Challenge

I know that it seems as if all of my posts lately revolve around Minted, but that's because it's been a very busy month in the Minted world. Today, voting opened on the Sending Good Cheer Holiday Challenge. Designers submitted over 2,000 entries to the challenge, and the quality of design is simply overwhelming. Because of the staggering number of entries, the Minted staff made a first cut, narrowing the field of designs to 700. Of the eight designs I submitted, two were selected to move on to the voting round. I've already shared both of these designs with you, but I wanted to relink you to them so that you may rate them if you have a free moment. Here they are:

M is for Married

I'm totally in love with diagonal stripes right now. They're a bit preppy and vintage-y, and I love the subtle character they add to this "M is for Married" Christmas card that doubles as a wedding announcement.

holiday photo cards - Twice the Meaning

Twice the Meaning

I'm also totally in love with banners, as evidenced by the recent redesign of snippets. They're perfect to highlight important details in a design, including a brand new baby's name, as on this "Twice the Meaning" Christmas card that doubles as a birth announcement.

It's ironic that the two designs selected were the two I submitted first. Although I'm sad that the rest of my designs got cut, I'm glad that at least a couple made it to the voting round, which will be open for the next five days. If you have some free time, please rate my designs by clicking on the images above, then spend a few minutes rating some of the other designs you see. You'll be blown away by the talent of my fellow designers.

Thanks for your support!

Until next time, grace and peace.
