I think the entire design should be very simple and obvious and only contain vector art and type. No photos. Potentially the different card values could be different colors but is not necessary for the winning design to have that. The finished product needs to look professional and in alignment with any other large chains gift cards. Please reference the existing gift cards on the market today for examples. When i did a google image search for 'gift cards' i find several good examples fairly quickly on effective gift card graphics.
I believe the offer (meaning the amount of the gift card should be very obvious. Again see existing other companies on the market for good examples. The company that will be printing the cards is http://www.plasticcardmonster.com Their website has all the details needed for size, dimension, etc for designers.
