Behind the Scenes: How I Design Pugs

I thought it’d be fun to show you a little peek behind the curtain of my pug designs. I recently posted a new postcard to my Etsy site for the upcoming Easter holiday featuring my pug Maisy. I was actually born on an Easter Sunday, so this holiday is very special to me.

It took several photo shoots to get the right shots. I use actual photos of the pugs and the lighting has to be just right with their head & tails at just the right angle.

Then I take the photos into Photoshop to crop out the background, or crop out their little heads. This is my favorite part because I’m left with an adorable photo of my girls!

I use Illustrator to turn the photos into vectors, which are able to be stretched to any size. These usually require lots of tiny adjustments to capture the essence of the pug. After adding a border and some text, this Easter card was ready for press!

I can’t wait to send this card out to my family & friends!

If you would like your own digital copy to print & send to friends, use this limited time code SPRINGFLING50 to take 50% off the Easter card in my Etsy shop, or any other item in the shop! This offer will be available through Easter Sunday, April 20th.

Happy St. Patrick’s Day!

Hope you all are having a bit o’ luck thanks to the Irish today! Holidays are always a big deal around here. We’ll be feasting on corned beef, cabbage and soda bread today (courtesy of Trader Joe’s!). Just got back from a mini-vacation to Whistler, B.C. and very thankful I thought to take an extra day off work to catch up!
