Earlier this summer, I promised to post some ideas/sketches for gretting card designs and by far the one with the most praise was the "mouse birthday" illustration. It is pictured above on the far right. I also designed a few using Posey, since I have so much fun with her. The 5x7" cards above are:(left to right) Christmas, Halloween, and Birthday. All have matching white envelopes that I am going to decorate before sending out.
Now, as I prepare to package my cards as promotion samples, I began thinking about the consumer. I'm curious... what attracts you to a card? Is it the shape, color, wording, artwork??? I know I am drawn to the art but if I don't like the message inside (to sappy, to silly, to blah...) I put it back. Your opinions on this would help me greatly in preparing my artwork and layouts for promotion.
AND to make this even more fun, if you post a response to this topic (what attracts you to a greeting card) you will be entered to win one of the (3) cards above - winner can choose which design they want. I will randomly pick one blogger from those who leave a comment and then post that name on Sunday, 8/24.
Thanks for your help with this and for stopping by today! =)
