Yes, it’s true – I’m wrapping up the card project with the end of 2012. It’s been fun creating so many different designs and illustrations for my friends and family and I feel I’ve learned a lot from the process. After two years though it’s time to move onto some new projects so I won’t be making any more cards (except for maybe a couple here and there ^_~).
Apart from my Christmas cards, I created three birthday cards for friends during December. All of them were handmade, with some even having a bit of interactivity (apart from the obvious opening and closing).
My last typography card for the year. My friend is an accountant so I figured why not use numbers! It was pretty fun thinking up all the different types of of to use to fill the design.
Peasant Flick Card
The history of the peasant flick goes way back to my high school days when it was created as an amusing pay out to one of our friends. I wanted to make this card a little more interactive and decided it should actually give the peasant flick!
I watched a few videos about creating basic pull tabs cards before having a go at creating my own. It’s a little more complex than you think!
This card was made for my boyfriend, who loves the android mascot. We even have a set of 4 plushies of him in all the available colours above our bedroom door ^_^. If you’ve ever watched videos of the android mascot at events, you’ll find he’s quite the dancer and I wanted to base my card off this.
Using the same basic functionality from the last card, I created an android that danced from side to side.
Get ready for some new projects in 2013! Also Happy New Year to everyone!
