Are you interesting how to make creative looking business card in a few steps? Be sure, it will take five minutes maximum!
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.
After that use Layer > Rasterize > Shape to rasterize shape and apply Filter > Texture > Texturizer with next presets:
You have to receive the same effect as mine:
Then apply Filter > Noise > Add Noise with similar settings to these:
Now you should have something like this:
After that use the Dodge Tool (Brush: 125px, Range: Highlights, Exposure: 30%) to add two or three bright lines to our card.
Ok, now select the Rectangular Marquee Tool to create selection and fill it with color of #dde2e6 on the new layer.
Remove selection with Ctrl+D and after that apply Filter > Noise > Add Noise with next parameters:
Now you should have a relief like mine on the picture below:
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.
After that add a few text lines with any color using Arial Narrow font, which is one of standard Windows fonts.
Now use Line Tool (Weight: 2px) to add some line to our business card.
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 donâ€™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.
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.
Then use the Horizontal Type Tool again to type one more text line with white color on business card.
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.
Then remove selection and set up opacity to 55%, after that use Blur Tool for blurring shadow a little bit.
And the last one step! Move to business card layer and use Polygonal Lasso Tool again to select part of this layer.
Then apply Dodge Tool (Brush: 70px, Range: Midtones, Exposure: 30%) a little bit.
Remove selection with Ctrl+D. That is it for now!
We got nice creative looking business card in a few minutes as I told you!
