    Default Custom Card Template *For GIMP users

    Download link
    This file is an .xcf and GIMP will need to be used to create custom cards.
    GIMP is a free Photoshop replacement

    The above file is a Summoner Wars card spliced into pieces. The layers are colored red so users can easily use the Hue/Saturation tool to change to the desired color.



    After the desired Hue Change and Artwork placed on the "Art Layer" you should get something that looks like




    The pieces that are off the card will need to be copied and placed on the "Paste Layer" but most of the other layers will edit directly on the card.

    Once all layers are put into place, merge all the layers (including the Red backcolor layer, this layer should still be bright red) and use the magic wand tool to delete the red color, creating your very own custom card!

    The "Cloud Background" will need to be pasted into the "Cloud Paste" layer.
    If you are an avid user of GIMP then you should be able to make your way through this not-so-detailed tutorial.
    Anyways, Enjoy!



    I could not find an appropriate font but you can most likely find a suitable font.
    P.S the cloud background is Lord_AndraK's work and should be given full credit for that.

    Very interesting. I'll give this a whirl.
    The night's shadow exists, not sleeping at all,
    The toil of the light is its only call,
    Behind the scenes lurking with shadowy gall,
    Its face never showing; height never too tall.

    Without a cry wherein dissent finds respite,
    The multitudes safer in the billowing light,
    More likely than not to strike evil at night,
    Then silently vanishing to be out of sight.

    Just a thought. I would break the card down even further like the boarder and the text areas so it is easier to re-color them separately.

    I agree with Ronaldo, but that's already an awesome tool. I used gimp for my cards so far, and it works nicely.

    Hey I've been using this tool a ton lately. It really has helped progress my custom faction construction. I'm so glad I have it. Though I was wondering, do you have the same template deal for Event Cards and Wall Cards?

    I got the file downloaded alright, now just looking for a good tutorial, I've gotten some of the stuff to move around however I'm having trouble with segregating some of the components and I can't seem to get the cloud portion to layer duner the card, it keeps covering the entire card whenever I try and move it - I'm digging though things looking for a good tutorial now, but if someone has a more detailed one that ties in directly with this file that would be awesome!

    Thanks!

    I've been using this file for awhile now. I'll try to get a video tutorial made at some point but I don't have a good screen/audio recorder right now so it might be awhile.
