i finally made our other club card. here is the card i was casing (another card designed by michelle zindorf):
this was what i ended up with:
i'm not totally happy with it but i'm not horrified with it either. i have to always remember that it is a HANDMADE card. and, it really is a teaching tool (for my club) not a show-stopper. so, eh. it is what it is.
i'm gonna try again with different colors and see what i come up with.
