How to Make an Earth Day Card on HTML5?

The process of creating cards constantly evolves as the years go by. What started as DIY (do-it-yourself) by creating handmade cards has now transformed to creating digital copies on computes and printing out the design. In this article, we will look at tips you can use as you create your card on HTML5 before you select the print button and distribute your Earth Day card. Just follow the steps below.


1. Select Your Card Type

Before you can begin, you need to identify what kind of card you will be making. This helps you identify the layout of the card. Ther are two common types that you can use: the flat and the folded. We'll take a look at the folded first. It's the most traditional type of card that people go for as it usually contains a surprise inside, whether it's a pop-up cutout, a witty content, or cute illustration. Flat cards are more straightforward with their photos or artworks. They're also used as giveaways for promotions that entrepreneurs hand out.


2. Make Your Layout

Once you've decided on the card type, you can make a series of three to five rough drafts and plot out your card layout. This is to help you identify where you can attach your images and write down your content. You can mark the spaces so you don't forget where each one can go.

3. Prepare the Card Content

Because you're making an Earth Day card, your content will have to be something that involves a call-to-action. It can be something along the lines of 'Let's Plant!' or 'Let's Clean!'. Anything witty that still goes back to the message of environmental friendliness.

4. Design Your Card

Now let's get creative and start designing the card. The colors of your choosing will need to primarily use green as it is a positive color and it's the one that's associated best with earth. The images you use can either be a stock image or vector illustration. Using images and resizing them can be a little tedious so you'll want to go for illustrations instead as most card designs use them. The font you select shouldn't be overly formal for the header. It has to be bold to catch the readers attention and it needs to be large.

5. Review and Save

Once you finish your design, take a while to review your work and see if anything might be out of place. Change what you can and proofread the content to make sure you got your spelling, grammar, and punctuations right. When you fix everything, save the file before you have it printed out.
