welcome to in a card's blog...

i know that "cute" is not a word typically used to describe good design, but in my world, it is. if it's your first reaction to say, "aww... how cute!" then it must be just that! "C-U-T-E." and i'm talking about so incredibly, ridiculously cute that the most masculine of men will even say those three words without thinking twice about it.

and so that is what i hope to share with you on my blog...

a combination of really unique ideas, simple thoughts that come randomly into my mind, along with "cute" designs that i've designed or come across.

cutest paid invoice EVER!

today i received a paid invoice in the mail.  of course it's always nice when you get paid.  but this client sent me a check in a cute polka dot envelope with stickers spelling out THANK YOU that i just had to share with you all.  it totally made my day knowing that someone took the extra time to make something ordinary into something very special and i truly appreciate it!

Op event table

here's a recent table the girls at Chlo+E did for Op at Star Magazine's "All Hollywood" Party Event.

Op already has their own distinct brand and style, so i used elements from their current ad campaign to create fun and colorful favor bag labels, surfboard shaped buffet tags, candy bag toppers and cute little cupcake toppers.

i love all the little details these girls always include in their table spreads!
