[Trello Holiday Calendar] Day 11: Beginners guide to spice up your cards

Welcome to Day 11 of awesome Trello Holiday Calendar πŸŽ„

Hope you could get a real good laugh when reading the headline of todays topic - yes you are right! 

Spice Girls are back πŸ˜‰


But this time, let's spice up your cards on your boards!

With two really easy things you can make your cards for you and your team from the grey looking one

Start with the Cover!

You can choose between many, many opportunities:

  • Size of the Cover
  • Color or Picture of the background
  • Color of the Headline shown
  • Upload your own pic or use one of the endless available pictures

For more information always have a look on Trello blog - you will find amazing solutions many more opportunities!


Now formatting 😊

When writing more information on your card you get support for formatting on with the 'Formatting help' button (Bottom right side) But there is more πŸ₯³

You find the linked Help texted in Formatting help and here is an overview 
(Tipp: You may wanna copy it on one of your cards as a template)


  • This text is **bold**
  • This text is _italic_
  • This text is ~~crossed out~~
  • This text is >quote but needs to be set before each line
    >So before this line
    >and also this line
  • This is a [link]( -> You may look if you want to hide the link - > Compare how the link is shown 😊
  • Using a '-' will create bullets -> same works with numberings 1., 2. and so on => but be aware of hard breaks! 
  • Headers can be created differently > easiest way
    # Header 1, ##Header 2, ###Header 3 aso 

  • Last but not least Pictures aaaaand Gifs in your description 😍
    ![Great Idea will come](

So that should really spice up your card 😁

Do you have other tipps or questions? Feel free to comment πŸ’™

@Fabienne Gerhard great article! I actually didn't know about the ~~ so that's really cool!! I love to use formatting in my cards so the big blocks of text look a little more easier to read. Great tips here
