A sweet combination...

HB019 (with name)

I got this soft green paper a few weeks ago and wanted so much to make a card with it with a combination of white and pink. And the day finally came for me to do that when a customer of mine wanted a soft green and pink card! :) Her request couldn't have come at a better time.....I was eager to experiment it and see how it will turn out. I have done a combination of soft apple green and pink paper before and I loved how the colour suits each other and wanted to see if this soft green would look good too with pink and it did.....so I'm very happy with it.....I even made the handmade envelope of the same colour....to match the card.... :) sweet!

HB019 (without name)

This is the same design I made for another customer.....but the only difference is that the wordings does not include any particular name on it.....just a simple "Happy Birthday" on the card. The colour of the card looks a bit different because this one I took using the scanner instead of the digital camera :).

Striking pink and red birthday card

*This card is available for order.
(I designed this card as a replacement for HB018 due to the paper which is unavailable at the stores at the moment)

This is another card request that I designed for my customer....a request for a pink and red combination......I love how the red + white flower stand out on the card....very striking and catches your attention straight away... :)

I wanted to show everyone this design I made which is exactly the same as the one above except for the wordings in front that does not include any name on it except for a simple "Happy Birthday". :)

Brown owl with a twist of green


I designed this card a few days ago for a regular customer of mine....she requested for a birthday card with an owl on it. She requested a card with an owl before which was last year for the same friend's birthday...so I used the same template for the owl but I made the card a bit different in colours and layout design..a mixture of olive green and shades of brown which I love so much.... :)

For my favourite teacher



This particular card has the same apple decoration on the inside of the card just like the one in MTD001. The only difference is the design on the front of the card, which is much more simplified with simple dotted lines framing the wordings on the card.

I'm so glad that I am able to blog about this card design before Teacher's Day arrives this coming Friday hehehe! As we all know, Teachers’ Days are intended to be special days for the appreciation of teachers. We honor and recognize the lasting contributions they make in our lives. On this special day, students expresses their respect to their teachers by preparing a special party for them.....they also prepare the food and drinks plus the gifts, flowers and cards that expresses their love for their favourite teachers....Even ex-students pay their respects to their former teachers by visiting them at their homes... :)

I've always wanted to design a teacher's day card with an apple in it! hehehe! And finally I did! The red apple has always been a symbol of appreciation for teachers by their students....and that's what I am trying to portray here in my design.....the red apple with a gold heart shape on it as a gift for their favourite teacher.....with simple wordings on the front of the card, says it all.....with the tiny heart shapes and flower decorations that are made by punched out papers and also cut by hand....adds a special touch to the design.....the gold vines are hand drawn as well........this card would be perfect for that favourite teacher that you have always wanted to show appreciation to..... :)
Happy Teacher's Day to all teachers around the world!!!!! :)
