(They're) Leaving on a Jet Plane

Liora was turning 21. She loves the colour purple, collects elephants, and has got the travel bug! She was heading off to Thailand the week after her birthday, so my customer wanted me to feature it on her birthday card. I have shown her with a travel bag slung over her shoulder. An aeroplane soaring through the clouds can be seen in the background, and a palm tree in front of a bright yellow sun sets the scene.
This cute little elephant was only 5 cm wide. My kids think that I should put one on every card!
My customer's parents were soon to be celebrating their 50th wedding anniversary. She sent me a photo of the couple and told me a little about them. They are enjoying playing bridge together in their retirement - thus the fun oversized playing cards -  and also they have four daughters and a number of grandchildren in four continents: Israel, South Africa, Australia and the USA. This means that they travel quite a bit! I added the flags of each of these countries to the card, along with a gold 50, since gold is the precious metal associated with the 50th wedding anniversary.
My customer told me that she thought the cards were amazing!

Stunning cards as usual. I love the way you tailor them to the recipient's interests - very thoughtful. Have a great week. x

Great cards. How exciting to visit Thailand at such a young age! I love that this couple gets to travel all over to visit family too. So exciting!
