Meital's mum asked me to create two cards for her daughter's 12th birthday. Her first request was for a card showing Meital dancing. She does hip hop and jazz, mum told me, and she wears black leggings and a T-shirt for her classes. She also asked me to add the words "Dance" to the shirt.Meital is a redhead, or gingie, as they are known here in Israel, so I matched her gorgeous hair colour to the photos mum showed me. Finally I added some number 12's to the turquoise background, to mark her age (12 is the age that Jewish girls become a Bat Mitzvah).
The second request was for a card showing Meital holding her phone which she is apparently, ahem, rather attached to! Her phone case is glittery gold, mum said, so I have shown her holding the said glittery gold item. The background is lilac, according to mum's request, and I once again added some number 12's to mark her age.
Meital's mum reported back that her daughter loved the cards. She apparently recognised her phone immediately. "Oh look, it's my phone" she exclaimed when she opened this card!
