When my best friend told me that her mom was planning her baby shower, I called up my ‘aunt’ and begged to work on the invitations. I asked what the theme was—zoo animals—and went to work. My timeline was short, only a few days to design and get the invitations out, so I purchased a stock illustration. Using the lion/lioness illustration, I modified it to create the cub and also created the parachute graphic.
It was the best project: full control, a happy client, I didn’t even mind cutting and crafting all the cards myself. The best part of it all was the reaction of my best friend, who just swooned over the invitation and simply adored the baby cub illustration.
I even designed small tags that went on the cake pop favor pieces.
