My most recent cards

Happy Bastille Day everyone!

My holiday is now behind me and my house move is in 10 days only! As I said in June, these are busy times but I have got some comments from one of my biggest fans who complained that I hadn’t posted anything in a while. I am lacking actual new artwork to show so my most recent greeting cards designs will have to do! All of them are my very own creations but one: this year’s Mother’s Day card (the two hugging birds on hot pink background) was inspired from a similar card I saw on Pinterest (I only changed the colours and added some hand-drawn details).

Enjoy! 🙂

Oh and I’ve just been notified that this is my 100th blog post so double reason for me to celebrate today!

Cards from the past few months

Hello!

Long time no speak! I hope that you have been enjoying the summer and that you managed to get some rest.

The other day I was going through the photos that I have taken during the past few months and I realised that a number of cards I made (and photographed) are not on here yet. So it is about time to put them all in a post.

In chronological order we have:

The Recipe Card

I made this card for one of my friends who turned 30 a few months ago. The concept: an illustrated card with the recipe for a natural/hand-made energy drink inside (because sometimes we all need a little boost).

This year’s Mother’s Day card

A fun, colourful card for my mum. A shame I had a tiny ‘glue situation’ when I pasted the banner (oops!). Fortunately she loved it nonetheless.

The flower card

When it comes to birthdays, flowers are a classic! This one was very easy and fun to make!

The ‘Congratulations on your baby’ card

This card was a first: I had never made a card to congratulate someone on their new baby before. I quite enjoyed drawing and cutting out the cute elements. It was a lovely card!

The Wedding card

Summer is one of the busiest times for weddings. This year was no exception. This card is one of my all-time favourites. I will definitely be making this one again! Maybe try it in different colours too.

The Birthday Card with ribbon

Yes, that’s right. Another birthday card! But I like to innovate and for this one I did things a bit differently. I decided to go for a discreet design outside and to place the illustration inside the card this time. I also added a bit of ribbon to make it look even nicer and to ensure that the flaps would stay shut so that the surprise would only be revealed at the end. Again, I really enjoyed making this card! And I had some very good critiques so I will be using the ribbon trick again!
