We hope you all liked the final design we unveiled on Friday for Rupert's online birthday card. As you may remember, we held a contest for a fan to design Rupert's card and we're happy to say the winner was Cindy H! Here's how she came up with the design:
I got the main idea when I looked at a few photographs of Rupert. On one of them he wore his t-shirt with the big eye (I wanted to use that) and a few others showed him carrying the Olympic torch. That’s when I thought it would be funny to let birthday candles (with big eyes!) use the Olympic torch to light themselves.
Finding a proper background was what took me the longest. After a while I decided that listening to some music might help.
So I turned on my “Ed Sheeran” CD and the moment I heard the first sound, I could see the finished picture right in front of me and knew exactly what I wanted to do! Just like magic!
I spent a lot of time creating all the different candles and somehow connecting them with Rupert.
Cindy sent us the individual images of the candles, which are pretty awesome. See them here.
We also wanted to showcase our runner-up's entry. This sleek design was made by Dionne S!
Thank you to everyone who took part in the birthday card design contest, and also our other two contests! We hope you had a merry Grintmas. :)
