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 am so excited about them! This floral pattern is one I originally drew for a print in my shop. It became my best selling print by far, so I thought I'd adapt it for a deck of cards.
The backs of the cards feature different portions of a larger floral pattern. I love the jewel tones on the dark background.
The face cards are of royalty: queens, kings, jacks and corgis (of course!). I have two Pembroke Welsh corgis named Okie and Lula. They are mischievous silly little dogs, perfect little British jokers.
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. This is my second set of playing cards. My Islet playing cards were fully funded on Kickstarter earlier this year. People seemed really happy with the quality of the cards, which makes me really happy!
They come packaged in a great little custom designed box as well.
The queen is my favorite...
I really hope people use these to enjoy a game on a rainy sunday afternoon, relaxing with a cup of tea in one hand!
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
