Zodiac cards - The Rat

Project 10/16/2019

zodiac sign rat

Every paper has its own unique personality and characteristic - and so too does every zodiac sign. In our zodiac blog series we examine both – to examine the characteristics of the zodiac sign and the card.
Zodiac Characteristics
The sign of the rat is the first zodiac sign in the cycle of twelve. People born in the year of the rat are identified as sociable, ambitious at work and very sparing in everyday life. They tend to take care of their bank account and therefore have no financial worries. Arriving in old age, they have saved and prepared well and are cautious and careful.
From the outside they seem calm and speak little, but in reality they are emotional beings who are well in control of their feelings – which helps to explain their popularity and many friends. Furthermore, they are flexible, have a strong will and act proactively. And no matter if it's career or family, they do not give up until they reach their goal.[1]

ROUGH 5% Greywhite is one of a range of four subtle paper shades. ROUGH 5% is based on our ROUGH White with 5% black.

The special aspect here is the harmonious interaction between the paper and the rat motive – beautifully simple. Additional techniques and refinements are not always necessary. Sometimes less is definitely more.
