Hi! My name is Karla, and I am a Surface Designer. I create patterns for companies to use on wallpaper, greeting cards and textiles, and I wanted to make something of my own to sell in my online shop. I hand-illustrated these playing cards, and I love how they turned out!
In the $12 reward: two-thirds of the backs of all the cards feature part of a banana leaf pattern with citrus and flower bits strewn in. The other cards are geometric prints.
If you chose the $20 reward: One set of Islet Playing Cards - Standard Deck of 52 Cards with uniform card back illustration. See update section for image of the Banana Leaf card back for this reward.
The face cards are tropical animals; a flamingo queen, alligator king and sea gull jack.
The quality of the cards is just what you would hope for; sturdy, slick and with just the right amount of shine. I hand-drew all the artwork for the cards and then completed the artwork in Illustrator.
They come packaged in a great little custom designed box as well.
I really hope people use these to enjoy a game on a warm sunny day, preferably with a cold drink in hand, and maybe on a beach too :)
Risks and challenges
I absolutely love the quality of these printed cards. I don't for-see any challenges as I've already designed all the cards, and everything is ready to go!Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
