CARD 18 HOSTS A TAROT / ABSTRACT / SURREAL / FLOWING / WARM / UNKNOWN CARD TEMPLATE THEME MINIMALLY DESIGNED USING PHOTOSHOP LAYER STYLES AND SHAPE LAYERS. THIS TAROT TEMPLATE WAS DESIGNED AS AN EXAMPLE OF THE FAR END/EXTREME OF WHAT WE CONSIDER "MINIMAL" CARD DESIGN; JUST BEFORE REACHING WHAT WE CONSIDER "STYLES & EFFECTS" CARD DESIGN. THIS CARD TEMPLATE’S VISUALS CENTER AROUND ORGANICALLY FLOWING, SEA-LIFE-LIKE, ABSTRACT DESIGN ELEMENTS; SYMMETRICALLY ORGANIZED TO BRING BALANCE TO AN OTHERWISE SURREAL, UNCONTROLLED ATMOSPHERE. ORGANIZED IN THE FASHION OF A MORE TRADITIONAL, POKER-SIZED, CARD GAME TEMPLATE'S LAYOUT, THIS TAROT CARD INCLUDES 5 ICON AREAS AS WELL AS HEADER, PARAGRAPH, AND FOOTER TEXT. THE DIMENSIONS OF THIS CARD WILL ENABLE A GREAT DEAL OF ARTWORK TO BE SEEN, EVEN WITH THE INCLUSION OF ITS TEXT AND ICON AREAS. THIS TEMPLATE'S BACKGROUND VISUALS WERE DESIGNED ENHANCE THE LOOK AND FEEL OF ANY ARTWORK INCLUDED THAT HOLDS TRANSPARENCY INFORMATION. WE CAN ONLY IMAGINE WHAT CARD PROJECT THEMES THIS TEMPLATE WILL CATER TO; BUT WE DO KNOW THAT ANY AND ALL OF THEM WILL EVOKE A SENSE OF INSPIRATION AND AMAZEMENT IN THEIR INTENDED AUDIENCES. MANIFEST YOUR CREATION.
