This is a guide to making Pokemon cards. You will need some knowledge in using Gimp or Photoshop.
To start making cards you need to download Gimp( free, Gimp.org) or Photoshop( not free). You also need to go to this website to download templates( or blanks) , fonts, and symbols. http://pokemonresource.wikinet.org/wiki/Blanks and http://pokemoncardresources.deviantart.com/?offset=10. You also need pictures of the pokemon for the card. I will be making a Pikachu card.
