Design Spotlight: Betsy Bush

February 27, 2014

Our Design Spotlight shines today on Betsy Bush of Dragonfire Graphics, another experienced GCU artist who rarely fails to deliver the goods.


I chose this design to feature because it actually is a blending of images I have incorporated into other cards. I had the clock idea pop into my head one day so I hit the drawing board to make it a reality. It was so fun to go back into my files to find images related to babies and to see where I had been and how I have improved over these past 2 1/2 years of greeting card design fun!
This design also gave me the opportunity to use my new found knowledge on how to make a flair button for each of the icons I made. I love color and this design definitely lent itself to the use of tons of fun colors. I also took the time to create many other versions of this card (announcements, custom name announcements,welcome baby for one, twins and triplets!). All versions were also done in gender specific background colors as well.

Here’s to a New Year of many greeting card sales for all of us!
