Create a Stylish Business Card in Photoshop

learn how to create stylish business card

Hello My Dear Friends, Sorry for being so late in publishing my next tutorial, but i assure you that from now we will post some very unique, and interesting tutorials on Photoshop. By the way, you might find some english mistakes, maybe a lot sometimes, but I will try my best to make it as legible as possible.
Today we are going to "Create a Stylish looking Business Card in Photoshop". Its an very easy and simple tutorial to understand. This tutorial is something inspired by "Ismaelgnc's Business CardsIsmaelgnc's Business Cards" on flickr. I like the idea and the way of presentation, so i decided to share the steps behind creation of Business Cards but in my own way. So lets start with it...!!

 

 

STEP 1

Lets start with opening a new File in photoshop of 800px x 700px dimension by clicking on File menu > New  or pressing CTRL + N on your keyboard. 

create business card

Use the settings as it shown in the image above.

 

STEP 2

After opening a new file, Set Foreground Color to #000000 (black) and Background Color to #dda100 (ocre yellow). After Doing these, Go to Filters menu > Render > Clounds.

After applying Render > Clouds filter, your image will look like this:

Then add a blank layer over this and fill it with black color and set its opacity to 65%. Till now we have completed the background for our business card.

 

STEP 3

Now add a blank layer on the previous black color layer and name it as "card". Now with Marquee tool selected (M), draw a rectangle in center of your image, and fill it with black color. Now go to "card" layer's Blending Options or just double click on "Card" layer. In Blending options Dialog box, choose "Gradient Overlay". 

In this, choose Blend mode to 'Normal' ;
Opacity to '100%' ;
Gradient color from Black to Grey (#000000 to #6A6A6A) & Check the Reverse box;
Style = Radial , Align with Layer ;
Angle equals to 0 ; and
Scale to 150% .

and also apply outer glow property to this layer in blending options.

Use the settings shown in above image and click on Ok. Now you have some similar to image shown below:

Now lets move to the next step !!

 

STEP 4

After doing all the above steps, add one blank layer above the "Card" layer and name it "Strip". Again in this layer draw a rectangular Marquee and fill it with the yellow bg color. Now transform it (CTRL + T) slightly to the left, in this way so that its width covers the Left top corner of the card below.

Now while "Strip" layer still selected, press CTRL key + click on the "Card" layer. This will select the filled area of "card" layer. Now we have to delete the extra space from the strip layer, so to invert the selection, press (CTRL + SHIFT + I) and press delete key to remove the extra space.


Now make two duplicate layer of the "Strip" layer by right click on Layer > Duplicate layer, above the original "Strip" layer.

Name them "Strip Texture" and "Strip Shadow" respectively. Now drag "Strip Shadow" layer below the "Strip" layer and fill Black color in it instead of yellow color.

Now Go to Filters menu > Blur > Motion Blur & apply motion blur with 0 degree angle and 40 px distance.

Remove the extra space that is created by applying blur filter in "Strip Shadow" layer.

 

STEP 5

Now come to "Strip Texture" layer and fill it with black color same like previous step. Now CTRL + Click on "Strip Texture", this will create selection around the black space.

Go to Filters menu > Noise > Add Noise. and select the settings as shown in image below.

After that , immediately go to Filter menu > Blur > Motion Blur option. In this use "-54 degree angle"  and 40 px distance. and click on Ok button.

Now change the blending mode from 'Normal' to 'Linear Dodge' of "Strip-Texture" Layer. Now you have something Similar to the image shown below :

STEP 6

Now after this, again move to "Strip" layer and open its Blending Option dialogue box. In which select "Gradient Overlay" property and choose the settings shown below :

create swril pattern in photoshop

After this, Select the Type Tool and insert the desired text... whatever you want to write.

 After Inserting Text in your image, add a blank layer named as "Card-Texture" above all the layer. Now while "Card-Texture" layer selected, Press CTRL and Click on "Card" layer to select the filled area. After Selection go to "Card-Texture" layer and fill it with black color. Now change the blending mode of "Card-texture" layer from 'Normal' to 'Soft Light'...

After that... Go to Filter menu > Noise > Add Noise .. and click ok. Now you Have an Image similar to shown below :

STEP 7

Its looks like we have almost completed....the only thing remaining is to add fire in the Card. For that.. i used a stock photo from http://www.sxc.hu/photo/1067967http://www.sxc.hu/photo/1067967. Import it in your file and adjust it accordingly...


To delete the unwanted parts from flames... use Quick Mask option. If you dont know how to use quick mask.. then you have to visit my next tutorial in which I am going to show you "How to Create a  burning word"

The Man was very sad. He knew that the Cat’s days were numbered.The doctor had said there wasn’t anything more that could be done,that he should take the Cat home and make him as comfortable as possible.
“Why do you cry, Man?”the Cat asded.“Because you can’t bear the thought of losing me? Because you think you can never replace me?”The Man nodded “yes.”
  “And where do you think I’ll be when I leave you?”the Cat asked. The Man shrugged helplessly. “Close your eyes, Man,” the Cat said. The Man gave him a questioning look, but did as he was told.American Dad
  “What color are my eyes and fur?” the Cat asked. “Your eyes are gold and your fur is a rich, warm brown,” the Man replied.
  “And where is it that you most often see me?”asked the Cat. “I see you…on the kitchen windowsill watching the birds…on my favorite chair…on my desk lying on the papers I need…on the pillow next to my head at night.” “Then, whenever you wish to see me, all you must do is close your eyes,” said the Cat.
American Dad Seasons 1-3
  “Pick up that piece of string from the floor——there, my ‘toy.’” The Man opened his eyes, then reached over and picked up the string. It was about two feet long and the Cat had been able to entertain himself for hours with it. “Now take each end of the string in one hand,” the Cat ordered. The Man did so.
  “The end in your left hand is my birth and the end in your right hand is my death. Now bring the two ends together,” the Cat said. The Man complied.

  “Just do it,” the Cat said.“Lick your hand,think of me in all my familiar places, think about all the pieces of string.”
  The Man felt foolish, licking his hand, but he did as he was told. He discovered what a cat must know, that licking a paw is very calming and allows one to think more clearly. He continued licking and the corners of his mouth turned upward into the first smile he had shown in days. He waited for the Cat to tell him to stop,and when he didn’t, he opened his eyes. The Cat’s eyes were closed.The Man stroked the warm, brown fur, but the Cat was gone.American Dad Seasons 1-3 DVD Boxset
 One day, not long after, there was a new Cat on his lap. She was a lovely calico and white…very different from his earlier beloved Cat and very much the same.

  The man stroked the Cat on his lap and sighed.The Cat opened his eyes, purred and looked up at the Man. A tear rolled down the Man’s cheek and landed on the Cat’s forehead.The Cat gave him a slightly annoyed look.
  “Why do you cry, Man?”the Cat asded.“Because you can’t bear the thought of losing me? Because you think you can never replace me?”The Man nodded “yes.”

  “You have made a continuous circle,” said the cat.“Does any point along the string appear to be different, worse or better than any other part of the string?” The Man inspected the string and then shook his head “no.”
  “Close your eyes again,” the Cat said.“Now lick your hand.” The Man widened his eyes in surprise.
  “Just do it,” the Cat said.“Lick your hand,think of me in all my familiar places, think about all the pieces of string.”

  The Man shut his eyes hard as the tears poured down his face. He saw the Cat on the windowsill, then in his bed, then lying across his important papers. He saw him on the pillow next to his head, saw his bright gold eyes and darkest brown on his nose and ears. He opened his eyes and through his tears looked over at the circle of string he still held clutched in his hand.
