MLP:FiM Trading Card Base by Scarletts-Fever MLP:FiM Trading Card Base by Scarletts-Fever

GIMP (.xcf) file download: www.mediafire.com/?l12qxazqbz8…
.svg file download is taken down because there were several complaints that it wasn't working.



Anyway, here's the base for the popular MLP trading cards, so you can make a card of your OC, a background character, or whoever!


Some Tips to make your card look like the originals:

:bulletred: The background is blurred a bit so the pony is the mane focus.

:bulletorange: The background often has a grayish-blue gradient on the top.

:bulletyellow: The first letter of your description is larger, hot pink, and in CMR font.

:bulletgreen: To show the type of the pony, circle the symbol in white and make the word underneath (pegasus, unicorn, earth) white and bold (in the other formats I went ahead and did this for you). If it's an alicorn, highlight both pegasus and unicorn!

:bulletblue: I left the symbol for the location blank, so make sure you fill that circle in with your preferred home-sweet-home.

:bulletpurple: The pony on the front side has a small oval shadow underneath him/her.

If you would like a reference or example, here is the one I made: fav.me/d5co4vp

FAQ:
Q: Can I use this?
A: Yes! This is for everyone! Please credit me when you do, I like to see the finished product.

Q: What font did you use?
A: The font for the names, location, and occupation is called Celestia Medium Redux, and can be downloaded here: www.mattyhex.net/CMR/
The font for the description is called Futura Medium Condensed.

Q: What program should I use?
A: I recommend using a software that supports layers, like PS and GIMP (download links above). You also use MS Paint (download .png) but it will be a lot more difficult.

Be sure to ask if you have any other questions :aww:

Also, do you mind if I modify the PSD file for this?

Actually! From what I saw on the original trading cards, if your character is going to be an alicorn, you should highlight all 3 species, meaning: Unicorn, Pegasus AND earth pony...

Sorry, it was bothering me and I thought I should point it out! (So Sorry-...)

Some people don't realize this! I have a pegacorn OC, since she has wings and a horn. However, I do NOT consider her an alicorn! Hope I could help! c:

I recommend using GIMP or Photoshop. If you don't want to pay for PS, GIMP is free.
