Esthers top 10 personal favorites
The op 10 of Esthers personal favorites!
Esther works at Studio Flash since the beginning of times :), and she knows our cards best, since she’s the one printing them.
So her personal top 10 should be interesting.
1. A01 ‘Gefelicitaart’
This is one of the first cards I helped to design with Studio Flash and that’s why it is still dear to me. I remember being so amazed to see the process from idea to sketch to a printed result. I am still a little bit proud every time someone orders this card 😋
2. D19 ‘Mamaaaa’
I can’t think of anything more iconic than Freddy Mercury throwing his fist in the air while singing the Bohemian Rhapsody. The large speech bubble represents his loud, powerful voice perfectly and it is overall one of my favorite drawings of the whole collection (made by Jolien). It was my mom who introduced me to the songs of Queen and we used to sing them together while cleaning the house or doing other chores. This card is so perfect for her. Every time I see it, I think of my mom.
3. ‘Delivering your birthday’
One of my biggest guilty pleasures is being lazy and ordering food (while there is plenty of food in the fridge!). It is probably way too expensive and the delivery guy has seen me in my pajamas way to many times… but I can’t help it. The food is too good! Ordering a cake on my birthday? Definitely something I would do!
4. C24 ‘Yoda one for me’
Yes, I am a Star Wars fan (not the prequels though 😉) and Yoda is, in my opinion, the best character of the movies. I just love printing this little man.
5. ‘Level up’
This card is inspired by old school 8-bit videogames. I used to be really into the playing the gameboy when I was younger, which was also the cause of many fights between me and my sister. We played for hours and would alternate between levels. I still think it’s wonderful how a simple 8-bit program on a small screen can create such great memories. That’s what I also like about this design. It is so simple and clean, but you can personalize it by filling in the level and making it your own.
6. F26 ’Sunburn’
I think this little guy is just a hilarious drawing and the message is so simple, yet so recognizable. The use of color in this card is also really cool and I always have a lot of fun printing the pink layer which gives this guy his sunburn.
7. C48 ’Sushi love’
I am just very happy with this design. It was a quick sketch that turned out just right and didn’t need a lot of adjustments. Sometimes a design process is as simple as that!
8. J11 ‘Zig-a-zig-aah’
As a 90’s kids I just have to love this card. I think the Spice Girls came out with ‘wannabe’ when I was only 1 years old so technically am am too you to really remember this… But when I see this card, the song immediately gets stuck in my head.
9. F34 ‘Great hairdo’
I don’t think a lot of explanation is needed here… A light joke like this sometimes is the best way to cope with the crazy, confusing political situation we hear about on the news. I would love to give this card to a bald person some day though 😂
10. C20 ‘I would still love you’
What is it about socks in sandals that makes it soooo unattractive?! I think caring about someone despite their questionable fashion choices must be true love 🤪😍. And yes, I have given this card to my boyfriend before 😉 (Sorry Arne).
