Tips on Designing Game Cards
Some general card graphic design tips that should be helpful to you.
You should choose 3 ~ 4 colors for your color scheme. Make sure that the colors don't clash between text, borders, backgrounds, and images, but have enough contrast so that the player can clearly distinguish between them.
Ideally, you cards should have 2 ~ 3 fonts and make sure they indicate the direction of the eyes and help players read the text. The fonts should contrast and complement each other, so if you choose a cursive or italic font, choose a font with heavy bold lines.
Instead of a static image in the middle of your cards, you should choose images that generate motion. Because the static image disrupts the flow of the overall image when flat centered images arouse the eyes just to the center of the card.
