First, let’s customize the front of the card. For the text, we chose the creepy-looking “Butcherman” font. (We also saw a cool font called “Creepster” which we’ll save for another time.)

To create the drop shadow effect, click the “copy” and “paste” buttons found on the top toolbar. Change the text color in the back to white. To arrange the order of your layers, use the menu on the left and click the “Arrange, Rotate, Align,…” tab.

To customize the inside of the card, click on the “Switch to Back” button found on the right side of your screen, under Sheet Navigator. Your design with automatically “flip” for you.
