A few days ago a friend from high school posted on Facebook about needing some help from someone who knows Photoshop. Not knowing what she needed, I responded and offered what
semi-limited moderate knowledge I have. It turned out that she was looking for a birthday invitation design for her twin daughter’s birthday. Well, invitations are right up my alley so I was more than willing to develop a few prototypes for her to consider.
I have to admit, when she said it was a Bubble Guppies themed party I had absolutely no idea what she was talking about. I don’t have kids so I don’t have Nick Jr. or Disney Junior playing in the background yet. Suddenly, Wikipedia was my best source for information. My friend also sent me a prototype of a card she liked so I could branch off from that.
Here is the card she sent me for reference:
So, I sat down at my computer to see what I could come up with. All of the images I used are from Google, I made all the card backgrounds in Photoshop, and I downloaded a few bubble fonts from DaFont.com.
I won’t ruin it and tell you which one she picked (most people will find out when she sends the invites). For now, it’ll be fun just to guess.
(On a side note: if you’re looking for custom-made invitations and you like my work, send me an e-mail or a private message on my Facebook page!. I’m considering starting an Etsy shop soon, so be on the lookout for the official announcement on my blog!)
