Creating with a Card Sketch

If you are feeling like you are in a rut and cannot create a great card, starting with a sketch is a great way to kick start your creative juices. This sketch can be a jumping point for your creativity. You can create your card exactly as is, with elements in the sketch or you can make adjustments to the orientation, move the elements or add more details to your card.
