Background, Rank and Suit:

BackgroundImage: Expected input: file path to image. This image spans the entirety of the card and is the bottom-most layer. In the “Deck Components” folder you can find a growing collection of images with names staring with “Background…” that are designed specifically for this purpose.

Example input: ..\..\Deck Components\Singularity Deck 2.0\Background Frame 1.png




BackgroundColor: Expected input: Hexadecimal color code. This column alters the color of the background image.
