This diagram is the actual card size and dimensions.  The dashed area is the border which will be done by someone else, your design area is 2 1/2 by 3 3/4 inches.  To make the final design look as good as possible, it is always recommended to work at a larger scale.  Then when the final design is scaled down at the end, it minimizes any little imperfections.  It just looks better.  The second diagram is the the card sized up twice size, just to give you good working dimensions.  You can work any scale you want, as long as the final ratio is 1:1.5.  In other words, 1 inch in the horizontal equals 1 1/2 inch in the vertical.


I can't see how the dimensions in millimeters on the template were arrived at - surely they're wrong....?!

Don't stress; just stick with a ratio of 1 : 1.5

You are right though - mm should read cm ! Oops.

Though this does remind me of when I was offered an MRP replacement deck where the cards were (she said) 7mm wide.

I queried....:cl

:D I wasn't stressed, just thought it needed correcting...:cool:

It's actually wrong in centimeters too - it should be 6.35 x 9.53cm

Edited to remove posted image...Please see the Card Post thread.

I've finished all three of my cards (first draft) and will post low res. copies of each of them for your feedback.

First, on the title card, do you think I need to change the name of the deck to anything more creative? Also, how about an apostrophe at the end of the word "Collectors"?

Also, does anyone recognize the image I used as "paint" to fill the graphic? Hopefully that won't be objectionable for this year's title card, to use a collage of last year's images? I thought it might be a nice way to tie the two decks together, but I'm open to suggestions!

I'm having a bit of trouble with my graphics software crashing while it randomly decides to change the resolution and dimension of my files. I might need some help with my higher resolution versions from someone who can see if they are proportioned correctly.

Here is my draft of the 4-Cups card: I took the background photograph in a park full of sculptures...the tree just speaks to me of cool detachment....

Great cards Mr. la-luna and AprilFool. The title card works really well - nice cool/clean style, and I love others too.

Should they be on the Card Post thread as well?

I just got a question. Do you you, Gregory and Marcia know how many of the cards are actually finished now? I am kinda curious.

And for your information, version 1 of my Empress is ready. But since I have 2 ideas, I want to work on the other one too and then decide which one I will use. If I don't manage that before the end of june, there is at least one Empress ready to go in this deck.

*insert pouting smilie here*  Sorry to hear that Debra, I always enjoy your cards ...

Would offer to take the Magician, or even the Ace of Pents, but I already have three minors so not sure that's allowed.

Hello,

I'm new to the forum, since yesterday actually, I could have an ace of pentacles ready, for certain as I have a drawing ready to be painted. The magician I could start to work on and hopefully be ready in time. Otherwise I also have a six of pentacles but I think that's already taken ?

I think you mean Babalon Jones, artist of the Seshet Rosetta Tarot. I already said in the thread that it would be possible, but he/she is too busy with the book for the Seshet Rosetta Tarot to be able to meet the deadline of the 30th of june.

Go for it, clandestinezen - just make sure your cards fit the dimensions at the top of the thread - and mail hires copies to marcia.

Sorry to cause more stress at such a late date, but a confluence of family and personal issues has made it virtually impossible for me to complete my cards on time, so I'll have to release The Devil and the 8 of Swords.

Again, sorry.

Hang on, Marcia mentioned we might have an extension, so Papoon may be able to stay in.  More info when I have it.

I'll be doing the border, so if you want to send me your final cards that'd be good.  Take Marcia out of the middle.  I am going away for acouple weeks starting this Friday, so I won't be answering emails very often!

Thanks for sending your money and to everyone else who has so far.  I have not received the shipment and am a little concerned that it has taken this long.  I think we need to contact the printer.

I just received an update from the printer that they had run into an issue with rounding the corners.  They state that the shipment of decks will be sent to me today.

SO, if you have not made payment for your deck, please do so now.  Please refer to the TCF Message sent to individual inboxes.

Marcia


PS:  If they mail them today, I should receive them mid-week next week.

Delightful news!!!  The DECKS ARE HERE!  OK, IF you have paid me already, YOU will get your deck first.  IF you have not paid me, please do so now.  IF you never pay me, you will never get a deck.

I'm just a big meanie like that.

I'll be working on the deck mailings and the list of who has paid already on Friday, October 28.  First shipment of decks will go out that day.

Aren't you all just tingly all over???  And could someone, anyone, please wish our own skad1 Happy Birthday???
