Neill, above, might well be happy about it. His Mum tells me that he is a die-hard Leeds United fan, so the club's badge, which features the White Rose of York, and their traditional colours of blue, gold and white, just had to feature on his birthday card.
Shai recently celebrated his Bar Mitzvah. My customer told me that he likes to draw and that he also plays the piano. I carefully crafted a piano keyboard and some music notes for his customised card, and added a paint palette and some pencils and paper. A gold Magen David, or Star of David, and the number 13 (the age that a Jewish boy automatically becomes a Bar Mitzvah) add a little Jewish content.
Finally, this tie design is an old favourite but on this occasion I gave it a funky edge with some rather Seventies-inspired floral paper. I think it made for a fun card but, hopefully, one with a masculine edge to it too.
