Start by creating new document sized 500×300 pixels, then fill it with color of #e2f2f5.

Now start with creating business card. Use the Rounded Rectangle Tool (Radius: 7px) and select color of #06a4bd for creating shape in the middle of the canvas.

Time to add some information to our business card. First of all I would like to add some logo. Just select the Custom Shape Tool and choose one of standard Photoshop shapes. Then add this shape to our canvas. Use any color for creating this shape.

Making Creative Business Card 11

After that add a few text lines with any color using Arial Narrow font, which is one of standard Windows fonts.

Making Creative Business Card 12

Now use Line Tool (Weight: 2px) to add some line to our business card.

Making Creative Business Card 13

Then merge all the layers with line, texts and logo together. Use Select > Load Selection to make this layer selection. Now you can delete this layer, we don’t need it more. Move to grey rectangle shape layer and press Delete button to clear selected area which you have on it.

Remove selection with Ctrl+D and apply Drop Shadow layer style to this layer.

Making Creative Business Card 15

Making Creative Business Card 16

Then use Layer > Layer style > Create Layer to separate this layer style from current layer. Now move to this new layer with Drop Shadow effect and use the Eraser Tool to remove shadow from the bottom and right side.

Making Creative Business Card 17

Merge all the layers in one except background layer. Apply Outer Glow and Stroke layer styles to new received layer.

Then use the Horizontal Type Tool again to type one more text line with white color on business card.

Making Creative Business Card 21

Apply Drop Shadow layer style for this text layer.

And the next thing that we have to do is to add the shadow to our business card. Move to background layer and create new layer above. Then select the Polygonal Lasso Tool and create the same selection as on my picture below and fill it with black color.

Making Creative Business Card 24

Then remove selection and set up opacity to 55%, after that use Blur Tool for blurring shadow a little bit.

Making Creative Business Card 25

And the last one step! Move to business card layer and use Polygonal Lasso Tool again to select part of this layer.

Making Creative Business Card 26

Then apply Dodge Tool (Brush: 70px, Range: Midtones, Exposure: 30%) a little bit.

Making Creative Business Card 27

Remove selection with Ctrl+D. That is it for now!

    Thank you for your great tutorial.
    For some reason, I can’t go further than merging the layers. After I merged layers, I was trying to load selection but it is not active in the layer menu and I couldn’t do anything else

  • OG407

    Thanks for the guide.
    I had no problens with the tutorial and it works like a charm!
    I am using CS2 and have noticed that I have to make slight modifications to the tutorials when they are designed in later versions of Photoshop, but almost always end up with the same results.
