About this class:
This class, Frames in Procreate for Card Creation and Listing Your Card for Sale, was a class I envisioned as a great add-on to the POD classes I offer to help you get into selling your art. Creating greeting card art is manageable both in scope and length of time needed to complete. Using my methods, you will be able to produce numerous cards in no time flat. The key is, of course, having all kinds of brushes available to streamline the process.
In this class I’ll walk you through:
- my step-by-step method for creating symmetrical text frames in Procreate
- tips for using the frames in layouts
- how to add interest to the frames with texture, drop shadows and highlights
- optional uploading the cards created to the Cardisle website for sale
If you’ve ever thought of creating a greeting card line, you will find much of this information to be helpful.
This class will benefit anyone who wishes to simplify creation of greeting cards and learn methods to improve efficiency.
The key concepts I will include:
- using symmetry to create text frames
- using text frames to streamline greeting card creation

I also find that using these frames is very helpful for other sorts of layouts, like notebook covers and flags. Having them handy as brushes is the important part. A good selection of these can make turnaround time very quick.
