"Dragonlet" is a creature card.

This is a creature card. Let's learn the parts of the card.

Here we have Dragonlet. We know it's called that, because of the bar at the top. That tells us the name of the card.

To the right of that, in the circle, is its EP cost. Don't worry about that, you'll learn more later.

Directly under the circle is the art. This is the most obvious part of the card, and it is never referenced in gameplay. It's just there to look cool, and to keep you from being bored.

Under that is a grey bar with the words "Fire Creature - Dragon Baby" on it. This is the type bar. First, it tells us the element of the card. You'll learn all about the elements in a bit. The element of this card is Fire. After that, it tells you the type of card it is. In this case, it is a creature. Then there's a dash. This indicates that the urgent stuff is over, and there is some more trivial information. After the dash in this case, it tells you the creature type. Dragonlet's creature type is "Dragon Baby".

Under the type bar is the text box. The text box contains two main things, abilities and description.

The abilities are things that affect gameplay rules. The name of the ability is printed first (in this case, "Rage"), and the effect of the ability is underneath, indented, parenthesized, and italicized. This tells you what the ability does.

The description is in italics at the bottom of the text box, and it gives a corny joke, interesting information about the card, a quote, a quick anecdote, anything that adds a bit of flavor to the card.

Jutting into the text box are two black rectangles. These are the creature's stats- AP and HP.

AP represents the creature's strength in battle. This is how much damage it deals.

HP represents a creature's vitality. This is how much damage it can take before it is destroyed.

Finally, at the very bottom of the card is something I like to call the "Techy Text" It's not used in gameplay, and really isn't useful unless you want to know the rarity, set, collector number, or artist of a card. You can go ahead and parse that yourself.
