A Birthday Card for a Boss

A customer asked me to create a 60th birthday card for her boss. She had some very specific requests. She wanted me to create a paper version of her boss wearing a dark suit and silver coloured tie, and with a black knitted kippa (skullcap) on his head. He should be seated, with lots of papers on his desk, she said. As an additional request she then asked if I could add the law firm's logo on to some of the papers. Of course I could!
Her boss is always losing his pen or the lid, she told me, so a pen lid was put on his desk - just the lid with the relevant logo showing, as she requested. He should also be talking into his dictation machine, I was told.
A lot of time and effort went it to this card but my customer seemed thrilled with it, and the card is now in a silver frame on her boss' desk! I created a card for this gentleman's 50th birthday as well. I am happy to know that this card, with a big 60 on it, has been added to the collection.
The brief for the card below was much simpler. An 80th birthday card with a golfing theme was requested. A golf ball perched on a tee, with a flag marking the hole on the golf course, fitted the bill.
Some other "guy" cards have been created recently as well, a guitar and a fast car being among the requests.

How fun is that boss card? I love the detail regarding losing his pen and lid. Everyone has their quirks. :)

I love the lost pen too! I always find choosing cards for men tricky, but your personalised ones are fantastic. xx

Had to smile at the boss card. Both hubby and I have a 101 pens all over the house, because we keep losing them:):) Thanks for your visit:)
