My last card for a while but a special one at that. It was my Mum’s birthday a few weeks ago and this time I went back to my pattern drawing ways for a change ^_^.
The idea for this piece was actually inspired by a progress shot I took while drawing the design for the Lisa and Kim cards. As I drew in the pattern design from each corner, I liked how the internal diamond shape began to emerge – ahh the wonders of Gestalt!
Another card to show you guys! This interesting piece was created especially for my sister who enjoys the Persona game series – a Japanese RPG/turn-based fighting game, similar to the final fantasy model.
Within the gameplay there are tarot cards that allow the player to gain skills and ‘personas’ to help you in battle. It seemed fitting to make a special birthday tarot card, especially since her super secret birthday present is related ~_^.
It was one of my lovely friend’s birthdays over the weekend and I of course went into card-making mode to put together a special Pony/cupcake inspired piece for her ^_^.
My plan was to create something Eurovision themed because the birthday party was mainly going to centered around watching the 2012 finals. However, I wasn’t happy with any of the ideas I came up with and decided to take another direction. Through a bit of brain-storming the idea of amalgamating My Little Pony with chocolate cupcake icing and sprinkles came about and thus began the creation of my friend’s card!
Well the title pretty much says it all ^_^. Over the last couple of weeks I’ve been busy putting together cards for a family member and friend. I did a bit better job of taking WIP screenshots this time ^^;.
I’ve been meaning to post about this for a while now. It was my Dad’s birthday a couple of weeks ago which meant I of course needed to make him a birthday card for the occasion!
I took inspiration for the design from some Tudor lettering I discovered a while ago. I liked the way the ribbon weaved around the letters and wanted to make something that was similar yet a little more modern.
Well I wasn’t expecting to be posting about cards this early in March but things have a way of turning what you say around ^^;. After posting about the last couple of cards, a friend of mine asked me to create not one but TWO new pieces for an upcoming birthday party. How could I refuse a friend’s request ^_^?.
I had a really short turn around to create and send off these cards. My friend liked the 22 star illustration I did last february and wanted something similar. I try to not do the same thing twice so instead of just copying the old one, I sketched out a concept for a diamond shape with pattern work around the outside. The cards also needed the birthday girls’ names included.
It’s been a busy February and apart from everything else, I’ve had two birthday parties to attend within a week of each other! That means that I’ve also had two birthday cards to make (well, gift tags but still!).
Tis the season! It’s a shame Christmas only lasts one day, should be a week-long holiday! This has probably been one of my busiest Christmas’s because I’ve been putting together little handmade Christmas creations for everybody ^_^.
I’ve been busy making cards again! This time I had two special occasions within a week of each other – Father’s Day and my anniversary with the boyfriend. Both of these dates totally crept up on me so I didn’t have a lot of time to make them ^^;. I think they both came out alright though!
