Hi! I’m Sara Levin the artful inker. Welcome to my blog! I was talking with a couple of friends the other day about card design. And one of the questions that came up was “how do I know where to put images/elements on a card?” Today, I thought I’d help you with that answer by sharing the Rule of Thirds and a FREE gift.
Rule of Thirds
In design, there is a concept called the Rule of Thirds,
The idea being that you divide your canvas in thirds
and place your elements along the intersecting lines.
Our canvas is the card front.
Rule of Thirds Examples
This Butterfly Wishes card (HERE) that I shared a few days ago
is an example of a card using the Rule of Thirds.
Notice how design elements are at or very near the points
where the horizontal and vertical grid lines intersect.
Pairing the thirds with elements being off center creates
a kind of movement on the card front.
Yesterday’s Magical Mermaid card (HERE)
had much more going on.
But, it still fits the design principle.
Look at how the elements are placed relative to the axis points.
And think about how your eye tracks across the card.
Rule of Thirds Grid
Through the end of June (2019),
I’d like to send you a FREE GRID
for you to use for your designing.
Simply place any size order in my store
