Card Ideas–Sketch Layouts

One of the things I get asked most is how I think up card designs, well I thought long and hard about this & to be honest I’m not really sure, they seam to pop into my head triggered by every day things.

Now that doesn’t help anyone that asked me so I thought a would do you some card sketch layouts as examples of what can work as card designs. I have a batch of 6 to start you off.

What a super idea Jak, it's so nice to look at your blog for ideas but sometimes it feels like I'm copying your ideas. This way I have to use my brain and my own colours and papers. Thank you Jak for a great blog.

Thank you so much Jak, these will be most helpful. I usually just 'start' but I don't think there is ever much 'design' as such to my poor cards!
