MLP:FiM Trading Card Base by ScarleyKwinn MLP:FiM Trading Card Base by ScarleyKwinn
Featured on Equestria Daily [link]

.psd file download: [link]
GIMP (.xcf) file download: [link]
.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!

The font for the names, location, and occupation is called Celestia Medium Redux, and can be downloaded here: [link]
The font for the description is called Futura Medium Condensed.

Just Some Tips to make your card look as close to the original as possible:

: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, may add vectors for those at a later date, but in the meantime make sure you fill that circle in.

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

If you would like a reference or example, here is the one I made: [link]

Feel free to use as much as you want, and be sure to ask if you have any questions :aww:

Edit: GIMP, .svg, and .psd files uploaded
If you want a certain format let me know and I'll see what I can do.

Circle all three, since an alicorn is all three combined.
