This week, Becky Higgins revealed 36 new themed card sets for Project Life. While I covet a few of the sets, I am a Photoshop addict and a DIY girl at heart so I decided to create my own custom set of 3x4 cards for my Project Life album.
With just a little bit of Photoshop knowledge and the standard custom shapes that come with Photoshop, I created a bunch of 3x4 cards. While these are sized at 3x4, the same process can be repeated to create 4x6 title cards too.
Without further ado, here are the cards:
The steps to create these are fairly basic and only require a bit of Photoshop skill:
- Open a 3"x4" file
- Select a color with the eye dropper tool for the background. I actually opened an image of some Echo Park paper and used the eye dropper to select the colours from the paper so that my cards would coordinate perfectly with the paper line
- Using the Paint Bucket tool, paint your background with this colour
- Design your card using the Photoshop Custom Shapes and text tools. For ease and because I love a clean design, I mainly used white for my text and elements
The best thing about these cards is that I can put two of them on a 4x6 canvas in Photoshop and print them cheaply at any picture processing place. Also, they are easy to modify if I ever need to change anything to suit a particular page.
