The materials that have been used with in the card are:

  • coloured card
  • water paint
  • string

This card gives the feeling of freedom this is because it shows a plane in the sky and the sky is meant to be a big open space with no restrictions, also it says that the sky is the limit, this phase is used to say that there is no limit to what you can do.

This card also uses bright colours this gives off the feeling of happiness because bright colours are usually used to show someone who is happy and full of colour. This design also allows the user to interact with the card, this makes the card seem way more fun because you can actually play with it.

I would say that this card is very effective in conveying it’s intended message, this is because the message is meant to be that there is no limitations to what the person can do and this is shown through the image of the sky.

From this card I have gotten the idea of making my card so that people can interact with it as well making it seem like way more fun and interesting than just any normal card where you can only look at it.

The materials that have been used with in the card are:

  • Different types of flowers
  • parcel note
  • Orange string

From this card I get the feeling of love and joy, this is because there are flowers within the card and flowers are normally given to people that the person loves or cares for deeply and there are many different kinds which shows that they really love that person.

There are also a lot of bright colours used within the card, like the colour purple and orange this shows joy because lots of colours have always been used to show when someone is joyful or happy.

From this card I have gotten the idea of using real flowers within my cards as well to make it more visual appealing.

 

Card number 3

The media and materials that have been used for this card are:

  • Different coloured ink
  • purple and white card

From looking at this card I get the feeling of happiness and joy, this is because the cards have been cut out to form balloons and balloons are only used for parties and parties are meant to be fun and joyful. The designer has also gave the card a 3D feel because the balloons and been cut out of card and placed on, which gives it more of a 3D feel and makes it more appealing to look at.

There are also other visual elements that give off the feeling of joy, for example the colours that have been used. The artist has used a large range of different bright colours and bright colours usually give off the feeling of happiness.

I would say that this card is quite effective at expressing it’s intended meaning because from looking at the card I think that the meaning for this card is that parties are what brightens up people’s lives. This card expresses this meaning my showing balloons which symbolizes parties and making them colourful, while the background is left plain white, which symbolizes a boring life.

From this card I will take away the idea of placing colourful objects and materials against a plain background to make the objects standout more. It has also given me the idea of using colours to tell a story.

The materials that have been used in this card are:

  • brown card
  • different patterned cards
  • String
  • white card
  • ink pens
  • googly eyes

The media and materials that have been used for this card gives off the feeling of happiness, this is because the patterned cards have been cut out to form the shape of flowers and colourful flowers are meant to be a symbol of happiness.

There are also other visual elements that give off the feeling of happiness, like the colours that have been used, there are 3 main colours that the designer has used and that is yellow, green and pink, all of which are bright colours that suggest happy feelings.

I do not believe that is card is very effective in telling it;s intended meaning this is because when I look at the card I do not see any message or meanings that it is trying to convey to the audience, I believe that the card has no meaning to express and has just been made to look pretty.

From looking at this card I have been given the idea of also using patterns within my card, I will probably use patterns for the background of the card, to make the background look interesting as well.
