the best (wedding shower) greeting card i’ve ever seen.

I follow the lovely Regina Roff on Twitter, a talented designer and illustrator who also happens to be a fun person to follow. She’s also getting married this coming weekend (2 days!), and she posted a photo of her wedding shower greeting card, which I promptly retweeted:

Oh who am I kidding, it is the best greeting card I’ve ever seen. A YA cover card.

This is what happens when you’re a book cover designer working for a publishing house and you’re surrounded by brilliantly hilarious people. For those unfamiliar with the cover art, it pulls from the Drake Chronicles series repackage (that Regina designed!).

Here’s a photo so you can compare the two:

Is that not hilarious or what? Kudos to designer Derrick Sanskrit KC who also designed the back of this genius card (quotes supplied by publishing staff):

I can’t stop smiling when I look at this card! All of the quotes play to Regina’s interests — gaming, kittens, LoTR, zombies and design. It’s so incredibly thoughtful (and have I mentioned yet how funny I find the card?!). And I absolutely love the engagement photos (by Marissa De Cinque), especially that middle one. Happy wedding, Regina & Dennis!

Side note — how awesome would it be to get prom photos done as YA book covers? I’ll go ahead and start scheming for spring of next year!

If you’ve got a moment, stop by Regina’s site and check out her illustrations or follow her on Twitter. And if you’ve read any of the Drake Chronicles, let me know in the comments! I haven’t read a YA paranormal in ages.

  1. Wow! That’s definitely the best wedding shower card I’ve ever seen. I’ve read (and loved) just about all of the Drake Chronicles. Love the new cover. My favorites in the series are Hearts at Stake and Out for Blood.

  2. OMG this is amazing! It’s definitely a lot different than the typical wedding shower card and it plays on Regina’s interests!

    I wonder if other cards could be made to different events? Regina should start a side business!

  3. THey say you can’t judge a book…blah, blah, blah. But ya can and I do. I love covers, they say so much about a book. I’m a new reader/subscriber. Cheers :)

  4. Hi Capillya, new follower here. If interested, I can be found and followed at bethartfromtheheart.blogspot.com . Saw the interview with crazy red pen. Delightful!

  5. That is the best! I wish I had thought of that. Such a brilliant idea. And I’ve read the Drake Chronicles and I really love it. I was feeling burnt out on paranormal but they’re such fun and I love the Drake family. I need to finish the series and I hope to get to them soon. If you read them let me know!
