Hard to believe 2013 is almost over.
Anyway, today's three cards show different variations on one layout. In the first, the elements are centered on the card and are floating around in the white space, rather like the thoughts in my head, actually.
Verisimilitude. That's what the first card represents, and I love it.
The second card grounds the same sentiment and flowers (in different colors, of course) on a stamped woven background. From a design standpoint, grounding the elements is an improvement, but I am perverse and prefer the first, float-y card. You are free to disagree with me. You are probably right anyway.
Finally, the elements are still floating, but on a much smaller, raised panel. Perhaps this gives the illusion of more "groundedness." Whatever. I like it.
Do you think about grounding your design elements when you make cards? Which of the three cards do you prefer? Why?
