White Borders

These files have two optional extra layers to add a white border with rounded corners to your cards.

  • Turn on the "3mm-radius White Border" layer if you plan to use a 3mm (1/8") corner rounder, to add a 2mm white border to your cards.
  • Turn on the "6mm-radius White Border" layer if you plan to use a 3mm / (¼") corner rounder, to add a 5mm white border to your cards.

(The border width is chosen to provide a 1mm rounded corner on the inside of the border, with the same centre as the radius of the corner. If you prefer wider borders on your cards but plan to use a 3mm rounder then the layer marked for a 6mm rounder will work fine, it's just that the radius of the inner corner won't be cocentric with the radius of the outer corner.)

Hi. Great video tutorial. The template looks very useful, but my software of choice is Photoshop. Unfortunately neither of the formats you provided will work properly in Photoshop - the layers do not import. Would you be able to provide a Photoshop version?

 

Also, alternate templates for different card sizes (like bridge and the small cards FFG is fond of) would be most helpful.

 

Thanks so much.

Hi Scott! Sorry for the late reply.

I provided vector format templates because they're the easiest to be precise with, but I'll certainly add Photoshop templates to my to-do list!
