About Carrie ONeal

I love the smell of nice paper. The sight of a friends handwriting on an envelope. Picking out stamps at the post office. The joy of opening a letter from a far away friend. I have a feeling that if you are reading this you can relate...and you can see how designing for minted is a dream come true for me!See more of my work at www.onealdesigns.com

Hi Carrie! Congrats on being featured in the Minted email about party decor...I really love that party design. I was wondering if you'd share how you made the glitter effect? I'd looking into doing something similar (found some tutorials online to create it in PS) but when I used a clipping mask in AI it just didn't give the effect I was looking for). If you don't want to share, I completely understand! Cheers, Amy

Hi Carrie! I'm totally honored that you are asking for my opinion - your work is always just phenomenal and I still feel pretty "green" on here most of the time! :) I actually think the type looks great, but I think it would also look beautiful with something taller/thinner for "Peace" and "Earth" - that would make the map/snowflake more of the focal point and the type could fit more into a square shape in the centre. I think Cyclone inline would look superb (tracked out a bit). I really like it as is though, too - it's fantastic either way :) Hope that helps!
