Tutorials for credit cards


Recommended Posts

Hi, I'm fairly new to Paint.NET and have a quick question.  I'm trying to design a credit card which I want to use on the cover of my novel.  I want this to look realistic and it will show my name on it - as the author of the book - and a bank I have invented for the story.  I have found tutorials on-line but they are for photoshop and I am having trouble interpreting some of the actions in Paint.  Does anyone know of any tutorials specific to Paint?  I have searched the forum but maybe I missed it if it's here.

 

Thanks!

I haven't seen anything specifically for credit cards. What sort of actions are you having trouble with?

 

The Doctor: There was a goblin, or a trickster, or a warrior... A nameless, terrible thing, soaked in the blood of a billion galaxies. The most feared being in all the cosmos. And nothing could stop it, or hold it, or reason with it. One day it would just drop out of the sky and tear down your world.
Amy: But how did it end up in there?
The Doctor: You know fairy tales. A good wizard tricked it.
River Song: I hate good wizards in fairy tales; they always turn out to be him.

Welshblue has some good designs of credit cards, I remeber he posted some examples and they were done in PDN,

 

But as a tutorial, I don't remeber there is any.

 

This image from welshblue gallery, they look great, aren't they?

Thanks Drew.

 

I really wish Welshy would tell us how he did the embossed text on his cards.  I had a really quick go and and failed badly :(

Thanks everyone for the replies, seems a friendly community around here.  The text was one of the things that was killing me, so I've downloaded that Oval font - thanks Welshblue - and will have another bash.  I'll come back to post my effort so everyone can have a good laugh...
