In today's tutorial we are going to have fun creating our own party invitation card. We'll be adding text and creating colorful vector objects. If you take another look at the monsters at the start of this tutorial, you'll notice that some are made of simple shapes that we can draw by using various tools from our Toolbox. We'll now take a look at how this works.
The Artistic Media tool lets you draw vector shapes that look almost as if they were painted with a brush and there are many artistic media to choose from! We are now going to use the Artistic Media tool to create the Green Monster's eyebrows.
The quickest way to create the teeth is by using the Polygon tool Y. The yellow monster uses mainly the Artistic Media and the Freehand drawing tools. Now take the Pick tool again and drag around the yellow monster.
Move the monster to where you want to have him. Our third monster uses all the tools we have used up until now: The Freehand tool, Polygon tool, Artistic Media tool and the Smart Fill tool. You can now finish off the purple monster by using the Ellipse tool for example, to create finger nails. We hope you enjoyed our tutorial on creating an invitation card. Toggle navigation. Step 1 — Create a New Document Start by opening a new document. In the Create a New Document window, make the following changes: Now click on the Landscape icon to turn your page sideways.
Our card will have two sides so we need to create a second page. Now we have our two blank pages it's time to start adding some text and graphics! Step 2 — Creating a colored background To create a colored background for our card, just double-click on the Rectangle tool in the Toolbox on the left-side of the screen.
When we create a shape, we can fill the shape with color by left-clicking on a color in the Color Palette. To change the outline color of a shape, right-click on a color in the Color Palette instead. This 'no-color' swatch at the top of the Color Palette lets you remove the color from an object's fill or outline.
Now left-click on a color to fill the rectangle with blue and right-click on the no-color swatch to remove the outline. To stop our background from moving around while we're creating our other objects, right-click on it and choose Lock Object from the context menu. Step 3 — Creating basic shapes in CorelDRAW If you take another look at the monsters at the start of this tutorial, you'll notice that some are made of simple shapes that we can draw by using various tools from our Toolbox.
Change the color of the oval by left-clicking on a color in the Color Palette. Change the outline color by right-clicking on a color. Creating the ears: Draw another oval with the Ellipse tool and using the Rectangle tool , draw a long, thin rectangle over the top. Color these the same as the larger oval shape. You should then have something like this: With the Pick tool at the top of the Toolbox , drag around the two new shapes and click on the Weld icon to weld these both together.
Move the ear over to the large oval then click once more on it. The square, resizing handles will change to rotation handles. Drag on a corner handle to rotate the shape. Drag the copy into place and use the Mirror horizontally icon in the Property bar to flip the object over.
Move the second ear into the correct position. Now select all 3 green objects with the Pick tool and weld them together If you can't drag around objects to select them, hold down the SHIFT-key instead and click on each object. This lets also you select multiple objects. Most of the face can now be created using the Ellipse tool F7.
Just dragging this tool on the page will give you an oval shape. To draw a perfect circle , just hold down the CTRL-key while you are dragging. All of the following shapes eyes, nose, cheeks , were created just using the Ellipse tool. Using the Artistic Media tool: The Artistic Media tool lets you draw vector shapes that look almost as if they were painted with a brush and there are many artistic media to choose from!
Click on the Artistic Media tool I , in the Toolbox. On the Property bar , select the Preset icon. Choose a brush from the drop-down list. Drag the brush on the page to create the eyebrows. We are now going to use the Freehand tool F5 , in the Toolbox to sketch in the mouth.
After we have added the teeth we will finish off the mouth by drawing over the top with an Artistic Media brush. Now for the teeth! Select the Polygon tool from the Toolbox. In the Property bar , set the number of sides to 3. Draw the first triangle, fill with white color and make the outline color black.
Move this along the mouth line and rotate if needed. You should be left with something like this: To finish off the mouth, select the Artistic Media I , tool again from the Toolbox , choose a brush from the list of Presets in the Property bar and draw a line along the top edges of the teeth. The mouth should now look like this and our Green Monster is now finished!
Select the Freehand tool F5 , from the toolbox and draw the shape of the monster's head. To close the shape so that you can fill it with color , when you arrive back to the start of the line, watch until the cursor shape changes to a cross with an arrow and click on the end of the line. Now left-click on the shape and fill with color. Create the sunglasses by creating two ellipses and filling them with black. Then use the Artistic Media tool again to create the hair.
Continue using the Artistic Media tool and various Preset brushes to add the eyebrows, nose, and sides of the sunglasses. Draw two lines to create the mouth. Make sure that the corners of the mouth are touching or overlapping. Now select the Smart Fill tool from the Toolbox. On the Property bar , set the Fill Color to 'Specify' and choose the color white.
Set the Outline options to 'No outline'. Click inside the mouth area to fill with white. The Yellow Monster is now finished! Use the Polygon tool from the toolbox and in the Property bar set the number of sides to 3.
Draw a triangle and fill with a purple color. Create the mouth and teeth by drawing rectangles with the Rectangle tool the mouth has a black fill and a red outline. In the Property bar , increase the outline width of the mouth. The teeth are white with no outline. You should now have something like this: Use the Artistic Media tool to draw the black shape.
Adjust the width of the brush in the Property bar. Drag on the page to create the black shape. Use the Ellipse tool to draw the eye. Select around the black shape and the eye with the Pick tool. Click the Mirror horizontally icon in the Property bar to flip the object around. Place the new object in the correct position. We are now going to create a party hat for our monster.
Use the Polygon tool with the number of sides set to 3 to create an orange triangle. In the Toolbox , click on the small black triangle next to the Polygon tool to open the flyout menu. Now select the Star tool. You can change the number of points for the Star in the Property bar. Now draw a large star for the top of the party hat. Add a yellow fill and remove the outline by right-clicking on the ' No color ' swatch in the Color Palette.
The smaller stars on the hat have their fills removed by left-clicking on the ' No color ' swatch. Move the hat over the purple monster's head and click once more on the hat to get the rotation handles. Rotate the hat slightly. This is what our monster should now look like: To draw the hands, grab the Freehand tool and draw some hands on the monster, but make sure the lines 'hang over' the edge of the body, like this: Now select the Smart Fill tool from the Toolbox and in the Property bar , set the Fill options to a pink color.
Set the Outline options to No Outline. Click within the hands to create new, pink hand shapes. With the Pick tool , select and delete the black hand outlines by pressing the Delete key. The Purple Monster is now done! Step 4 — Adding text to our card All that is left to do is to add text to the front of our card. Select the Text tool F8 , from the Toolbox. Click on the page and type in your invitation message.
Switch back to the Pick tool , select the text and choose a font that suits your design by selecting one from the drop-down list in the Property bar.
