I am in a bit of a pickle so to speak. I wanna create a Photoshop custom card template for the Hot Wheels AcceleRacers Collectible Card Game, but I have no idea how to make them. I will really appreciate it if and when its done. Do note that it would be prefered, but is optional, to make the template as close to the original cards. Thanks in advance, Gaming239.

You do realize the irony of asking someone else to do something for you in the "Do It Yourself" forum, right?

OK, so with that in mind, here you go:

He was asking them to "Do it YOURSELF" not do it MYSELF.

Hey, there.

I was just reading this thread about a tool for making card templates. It's rather young, but you might wanna try it out.

If that doesn't work, I'm sure you can find similar tools and tutorials here.

If none of that does it, let me know. I've done some card templates on GIMP, and I guess the basic principles should work on PS too.

It's easy in Photoshop. Take my simple template and change it to original card size. Then add needed card elements, texts and pictures.

Some years ago I wrote main tips for pnp, if you read in russian.

have you thought scanning the original cards and then mess with them from there on ?

Thanks, but my Photoshop crashed when I opened it, even though it worked last week. And I can't really read Russian, so I'm afraid your tips won't be that useful to me.

you get a blank template that you can slip as PDF in photoshop and fill of all your goodies.

Chose your shape, enter the size and there you go.
