I need several different trading card frames designed in standard formats so that the final prints will fit into standard card sleeves and protective casings.
The trading cards must designed with two content areas, a large upper part for an illustration and a lower part of flavor text and card feature texts.
The trading cards need a border around these areas just as regular trading cards, and a slightly textured background for the lower part.
The frames must be designed in a way so the final print can be made with rounded courners without ruining the appearance.
The frame designs
The trading card game is based on elemental powers in addition to general magic and combat.
I want each of the base game elements to have a unique framed design that match the element in addition to combinations of the elements for cards that are related to multiple elements.
Fire, Earth, Air, Water, Poison, general magic
For these, trading cards must be designed with frames related to the element colors, prefereably with flames for fire, ripples or small waves for water, green possibly cloudy for poison and so on.
Additional frames are required for each of the first five elements in combination with 1,2,3 and 4 of the other elements (leaving out general magic).
This means that fire for example has to be designed with
1. 100% fire themed frame and texture background for text area
2. 50% fire themed frame (letf side of the card) and 50% water themed frame (right side of the card)
The area where the two elements mix must be designed so that the elements mix nicely either with a vapor effect of with some nice overlapping so that everything is smooth.
3,4,5. The #2 is done with fire 50% left side and earth, air and poison on the right side with a nice transition and text area fill as well.
(Note that cards with fire on left side and water on right side are required in addition to cards with water on left side and fire on right (the same for the other elements).
The frame design continue with even more frames by adding another element and splitting the right side into two elements at 25% each splitting in the middle (upwards down).
Once again using fire as example cards need to have nice transitions and with all combination posibilities:
Fire left side 50%, Water Upper right area (using 50% of the right side), Earth lower right area (using 50% of the right side).
This 3 element process must be done for all combinations and with every element in both positions, eg. fire on left side, water upper right, earth lower right AND fire on left side, earth upper right, water lower right.
The themeing continue with four elements that each use a 25% area of the trading card such as:
Fire lower left corner, Water lower right corner, Earth upper left corner, Poison upper right corner.
Again the different combination options here are needed so that each element is position on the card different places related to the other elements.
Lastly each of the five elements must be on a single design with 1 element in each corner as with the previous design and the 5th element in between the others thus creating the + between them.
All designed must be delivered in high quality in formats supported by photoshop and illustrator in addition to png and jpg.
In terms of quality, the design must be made so that print on full size posters look great, not just small trading cards.
Please send me a mock up of one of the trading cards with at least two elements via PM and bid if you are familiar with trading cards and the sizes / dimentions of these.
