Custom Corner: Eugenia Bacon

December 18, 2013

We’ve got an interesting Custom Corner story today featuring Eugenia Bacon. As we know, customers have the ability to make a request from an artist to customize a card to their own specifications and wishes.

This is the original card:

Cute card! She received the following request from a customer:
” Hi, could you remove the bear and the duck from the front of the card and place two cute bear paws in their place. I would like the bear paws to be the same color as the bear that was originally on the front cover. Then on the inside, instead of the writing could you place the bear there. Right in the center. Thank you!”

So Eugenia created this design:

She even included an image inside the card for the customer!

Congratulations, Eugenia, for handling the request so beautifully. You’re a wonderful artist.

    That’s really cute indeed! I wasn’t aware that it is possible to place an image in the inside of the card – how did she do that? Great card and well customised, congrats Eugenia!

    Just what I was wondering too, Steppeland!

    Cute baby card and bear card! Well done. I look forward to the post in the card inside. I have trouble with leaving the bottom area available for the customer. I have had an occasion to add an image to the whole inside right — and get messed up with that portion. The customer added the text for that part of it — but had to really work the text to get it to blend well together.
