------ Version 2.0 -------
Overall, this version flattens some unnecessary layers, which ultimately makes for a cleaner and easier to use template.
For your character portrait, you no longer have to worry about keeping masks or adjustment layers. Simply put your artwork in the right place in the layer stack, and resize as necessary. You now only need to put your character portrait in two places:
1 - A Smaller portrait for the front of the card
2 - A Larger portrait for the back of the card
You now only need to change your Class Color in a total of four places:
2 layers within the "Front" folder
2 layers within the "Back" folder
Example:*NOTE: The following fonts are used in this template: Mentor Std, Mentor Sans Std, DnDLolth.

This version of the template aims to be easier to use than the last one! Unnecessary layers were either removed or flattened. Folders were organized in such a way to reduce the number of times you had to add artwork or change your class color. Let's just jump right into it, shall we?
Within the "Front" folder, you'll see two layers titled "CLASS COLOR". Pick a color for the class you wish to use, select the paint bucket (fill) tool, and dump your desired color onto each of these layers. (the existing mask will keep the color contained to where it should be on the card) While you've got your color and paint bucket selected, go ahead and open up the "Back Folder" and dump your color on to the remaining two "CLASS COLOR" layers.
Now to add your artwork. Within the "Front" folder, there is a layer called "ART". Have this layer selected and paste your desired portrait on top. You'll probably need to move it around and resize it so that it fits in the little window in the upper right corner of the card.
Rinse and repeat this process within the "Back" folder. This time your image will take up most of the card real estate.
Next, you need to change all the necessary text, which is fairly straightforward. Certain elements, such as Attack boxes and Stance Tokens, are contained within their own folder, so it's easy to show or hide these things.
You heard right, we've got Stance Tokens now! This folder (which is a subfolder within each type of power card (at-will, daily, utility) defaults to 10% Opacity -- which is how it should look when printed on the card. If you didn't already download my separate Stance Token template, you can simply drag this folder to a new document, bring the Opacity to 100%, and make your token there if you like.
------------ One word of Caution
When you go to save images of your cards, MAKE SURE you only have ONE TYPE of power visible at a time. Since your character portrait now exists underneath all of the other layers, you don't want part of the Daily Power and Utility Power card showing through if you're trying to save an At-Will Power.Do not have all three power type folders visible when saving your final images. You can see the colored banners and names of other abilities peek through:
Only have one Power Type folder showing, and the colored banner that obscures part of your portrait will have the correct opacity and color:
