I will tell you now I avoid using any other shapes that does not have straight lines for when it comes to windows because it takes ages to cut! But because she specifically requested for a circular shape I had to do it. A circle is way easier to cut than an oval, so circle it is.
I wasn't sure if I got the right shade of royal blue but it worked with the gold. I also had to figure out how to dress up the circular centre without it looking like a port hole or a large coin.

The personalized names I used Adobe Illustrator to help me out, as my attempt in hot stamping gold didn't work out so well. I think I might just use Illustrator for future personalized work now as I can have a wider variety in type face.
The client was very happy when she saw the finished folders and said, "It looks just like how I imagined it to be!" Phew, very happy to hear her say that.
Overall, it's slightly different to how I normally design these folders, but my work is always evolving and this is one of them.
