My strategy is to give each card one simple "WOW" element, to help keep my cost down on cards that I'll be basically giving away for free (though I do get one back in trade, eee!) So, how to pare down, but still be WOW?? How about clean and beautiful elements, strategically highlighted on a single layer card? That was today's experiment - getting warmed up!
