    I use Adobe Garamond Pro, which comes with Photoshop I think. Bold 16 pt, for the card name, Bold (Italic) 14pt for the card and flavor text.

    I don't have many ready templates, because I edit them as I go. Your Silver header / attack background is more smooth than mine. :p

    Here are backgrounds for handicaps and assists.

    My current workflow includes saving reference cards in the highest quality straight from the server with the console command savecardart 100 <Cardname> (eg. savecardart 100 Jump, Soldier!)

    If you've just opened your CH client / browser, the actual image hasn't been cached yet and the first time produces the card with the missing hourglass image: (If you want the card with actual image, run the savecardart command again.)

    I usually then use those as a image background. Actual card images to play with can be found at your Steam folder (C:\Program Files (x86)\Steam\steamapps\common\CardHunter\assets\card_illustrations) or live at http://live.cardhunter.com/assets/card_illustrations/Chop.png (you have to know the exact image name).

    edit: Here is the Battleaxe, if you guys want to continue the Battleaxe saga. I think I'm done with them. :)

    The Devil is in the detail... here's a fun fact: Healing Ring Of The Inner Light is currently the longest item name with 31 characters (if spaces are included). Mean item name length is 15.8535327 characters with median of 16 & mode of 15.

    You know what else starts with 'd'? @DupleX, who presented the idea of the following micromanagement item.

    I'll skip right through the risk analysis of this project just this once and present to you:

    I also tell you a secret. If you compare the above item to Eric's Elemental Confusotron (28 chars), you clearly see the Micromanagement item is fake, because the item name is aligned differently. It should be closer to the expansion symbol and even overlap it a bit.

    Neat detail, isn't it. ;)

    edit: Added some more decimals to the mean item length.
    edit2: Changed the typography of these edit infos.
    edit3: A bit smaller edit info font.
    edit4: Fixed some #$@&%*! typos...
