I'd been trying to decide what type of pin back cards I wanted for my new lapel pins, and just couldn't make a decision. I looked at countless designs online, and some of the artists did an amazing job designing cards that were beautiful complements to their pins. I kept thinking, do I want a different card for each pin design, or do I want one card that will work with them all? While at present I have only two lapel pin designs in my offerings, "I AM" and "I AM in Bloom", I definitely plan to do more. Will I get bored if each pin back card looks the same? Decisions, decisions.
I proceeded to work on a design that I thought would work for a variety of pins, regardless of color, shape or message. I played with rectangular cards and square cards, trying to imagine how each would look with one of my pins tacked in the middle. Feeling frustrated, I set my project aside more than once in hopes that the perfect idea would soon come.
Finally, one day I decided to just design cards that looked like the pin they would be supporting. Big step! That means that I'll be designing a new card every time I release a new pin, but I love designing so YAY for me!
I am soooo pleased with the results! What do you think?
