Hi guys, I’m quite excited about this tutorial, hope you guys enjoy it too. In this tutorial we’ll create a sleek business card using our very own Photoshop. We’ll be using some simple techniques to get an awesome result. So before we start let’s have a look at our final result:-

Final result

Step 1:-

Open your Photoshop and create a new file with 700px width and 500px height.

Step 2:-

Now select the “Paint bucket tool” and fill the background with # 000000.

Step 3:-

Now we’ll add some noise to our background, so for this click on Filter> Noise> Add noise. And keep the noise amount 7.16%.

Step 4:-

Make sure you create a new layer for each step from now on, so to create a new layer click on Layer> New> Layer.  Now we are going to start with nice colorful strips on the right side of our card. So for this click on “Polygonal lasso tool” and select a tilted rectangle on the right.

Step 5:-

Now we’ll add a nice gradient to the rectangle. I’ve used a bright green one with outer color stop of # 35e200 and middle one should be # 000000.

Step 6:-

Select the “Hard round brush” with 2px size and # 35e200 color. Now select the “Pen Tool” and create 2 lines then right click on the path and select stroke path.

Step 7:-

Now again select the “Pen Tool” and click on “Shape layers”.  Make sure your foreground color is # ffffff. Then create a shape on the strip.

Step 8:-

We need to change the blending mode of the shape we’ve created above. For this click on Layer> Layer style> Blending Options. Then change the blending mode to “Soft Light”.

Step 9:-

Now we’ll add some stars randomly to our strip with our foreground color # ffffff.

Step 10:-

Now repeat the same process and create another strip, this time we’ll use a blue gradient. With outer color stops # 00d7fd and middle one should be # 000000.

Step 11:-

Simply repeat the same process and decorate the second strip.

Step 12:-

For the third layer use a purple gradient. With outer color stops # 770273 and middle one should be # 000000.

Step 13:-

Again add all the design details as we have done before.

Step 14:-

Now once again select the “Pen Tool” and create a  nice shape then right click on the path and click on “Make selection”. Now fill it with # 898989 using “Paint bucket Tool”. Then change the blending mode of the above layer to “Hard light”. Now click on Layer> Layer style> Inner glow. And add a inner glow with color # 000000, 80px size and 100% opacity. Make sure your inner glow blending mode is changed to “Soft light”.

Step 15:-

First group the 3 strips and then duplicate the strips by right clicking on the group and select “duplicate group”. Now change the blending mode of the duplicate group to “Divide”.

Step 16:-

Now select the “Text Tool” and add tittle of our card. Then your name and other contact details. I’ve used a simple black and white gradient for the tittle. And other text with color #2e2e2e.

Step 17:-

Now select the “Hard round brush” with 1px size and color # 000000. Then create a straight line under our tittle. Then repeat the same process but this time change the color to # 898989 and create another line under the first one. Now reduce the opacity of these lines to 20%. Now we have a nice groove effect. Use can use it again simply duplicate the layer.

And now we are done. Our sleek business card is ready. I hope you guys enjoyed the tutorial and learned something new. I’ll be back with more exciting tutorials till then take care.
