How to Create a Christmas Deckblatt with Florabella Colorplay Photoshop Actions
A deckblatt is a German term for a cover page or title page of a document. It usually contains some basic information such as the title, author, date, and purpose of the document. A deckblatt can also be decorated with images, colors, and fonts to make it more attractive and festive.
In this tutorial, we will show you how to create a Christmas deckblatt using Florabella Colorplay Photoshop Actions[^1^], which are a set of 54 unique and adjustable actions for Photoshop CS2-CS6, CC or Photoshop Elements 6-19. Florabella Colorplay Photoshop Actions can help you achieve beautiful results in both color and black/white in several styles, such as crisp, clean, colorful; earthy, organic, natural; light, fresh, airy; rich color & color pop; hazy, vintage, soft; matte, smooth, emulsion; and gorgeous B/W conversions.
Before we start, you will need to download Florabella Colorplay Photoshop Actions from their website[^1^] or from a torrent site (if you are feeling adventurous). You will also need a photo of your choice that you want to use as the background of your deckblatt. We will use this photo of a snowy landscape[^2^] for our example.
Step 1: Open your photo in Photoshop and apply the Perfect Color Bright & Clean action from Florabella Colorplay Photoshop Actions. This action will enhance the colors and contrast of your photo and give it a bright and clean look. You can adjust the opacity of the action layer to suit your preference.
Step 2: Create a new layer on top of your photo layer and fill it with white. Then, apply the Soft Tones & Hazes - Ice action from Florabella Colorplay Photoshop Actions. This action will add a soft blue tone and haze to your photo, creating a winter wonderland effect. You can also adjust the opacity of this action layer to suit your preference.
Step 3: Create another new layer on top of the previous layer and use the Text tool to type the title of your document. You can use any font and color you like, but we recommend using a festive font such as Merry Christmas[^3^] and a red color. You can also add some effects such as drop shadow or stroke to make your text stand out more.
Step 4: Create another new layer below your text layer and use the Custom Shape tool to draw a star shape. You can use any color you like, but we recommend using a gold color. You can also add some effects such as bevel and emboss or gradient overlay to make your star shine more.
Step 5: Position your star shape behind your text layer and resize it if needed. You can also duplicate your star layer and move it around to create more stars if you like.
Step 6: Create another new layer below your star layer and use the Text tool to type your name, date, and purpose of your document. You can use any font and color you like, but we recommend using a simple font such as Arial and a black color. You can also align your text to the center or left depending on your preference.
Step 7: Save your deckblatt as a JPEG or PDF file and print it out or attach it to your document. You have now created a Christmas deckblatt with Florabella Colorplay Photoshop Actions! ec8f644aee
