Dad & Son In Boat

Cover:


Inside:


This card was part of a series I turned in for Fathers Day innovation. The other design hasn't been picked up yet but, I will be sure to post it when it does.

I know a lot of people have no idea how much time and thought goes into creating a greetig card so, I thought I would try to explain this design a little better to show everyone exaclt what I mean.

With this card I wanted it to have an unusual layout. Or at least something different than our usually kids greeting card layout. I have found that most of the time the best art for a greeting card is on the front with little or no art on the inside. In this case the inside has the best art along with the energy and interaction from the characters. Leaving the person buying the card with a better and lasting impression.

I hope this explains my thought process a little better and that everyone enjoys
this design as much as I had creating it.
