Corel Draw Bridal Boutique Flyer Tutorial
Step 14: Adjust Upside Down Text
To place Text at the bottom of the Oval, select the Text Tool again and start typing "Create The Perfect Day".
Notice that the Text is not only heading in the wrong direction, but it is also upside down.
Don't panic! Click on the Pick Tool to change the Property Bar.
Select the Place on Other Side Icon (the last on the Property Bar).
You will then be able to see the Text correctly.
Remember to click 3 Times with the Text Tool to select the Text.
Set the Font to Advert and Size to 24.
On the Property Bar, set Distance from Path to -0.4" and Horizontal Offset to 16.1".
There will now be a nice flow of Whitespace between the Oval and Text.
Step 15: Apply Gradient Fill to Text
Next we will apply a Multicolored Gradient to the Bridal Flyer Title.
Select the Text Tool and drag it over the Bridal Pageant Boutique Text to highlight it. Then select the Fountain Fill Dialog from the Fill Tool Menu Bar.
In the Color Blend Section of the Fountain Fill Window, set the From Color to Red and the To Color to Yellow.
Then click OK.
Your Gradient Filled Text should look like this:
Step 16: Interactive Drop Shadow Tool
Go to the Tool Box, click on the Interactive Blend Tool Icon and hold the mouse over it for 2 seconds to reveal the Interactive Tool Menu.
Select the 4th Icon which is the Interactive Drop Shadow Tool.
Step 17: Drop Shadow Presets
Once the Interactive Drop Shadow Tool is selected, notice that the Property Bar has changed.
Click the Down Arrow to the right of Presets to reveal the Presets List.
Select Flat Bottom Right.
Step 18: Drop Shadow Settings
Next change the settings for Drop Shadow Offset.
Set X to "0.02" and Y to "-0.05".
Set the Drop Shadow Opacity to "70".
Set the Drop Shadow Feathering to "3".
Step 19: Feathering Direction
Select the Drop Shadow Feathering Direction Icon to reveal a menu.
Then select the Down Arrow next to the Drop Shadow Color and select "Black".
This is what the Drop Shadowed Text will look like.
Repeat these steps to apply a Drop Shadow to the Text at the bottom of the oval.
For Drop Shadow Offset, set X to 0.02" and Y to -0.03".
You will not see much of a difference as the Text's Fill is set to Black.
Change this by clicking White from the Color Palette to the right.
This makes the Drop Shadow pop.
Step 20: Insert and Format Text
All that remains is to add regular Text to the flyer. We'll start with the Flower Girl Text. Note that all remaining Text uses the Gabrielle Font.
Select the Text Tool, then type the Text on the flyer, hitting the Enter Key when necessary. Select all Text and set Font to Gabrielle, and Size to 36.
Since there is no Bold option for this Font, move the mouse over the Color Black on the Color Palette and right click. This gives the Text a Black Stroke and the added appearance of Bold Text.
The remaining blocks of Text are Font Size 16 and 24. Each block is Centered. To Center Text in Corel Draw 12, select the Text block with the Pick Tool or the Text Tool.
Select the Down Arrow on the Horizontal Alignment Icon of the Property Bar. Choose Center from the list that appears.
To save time, aligning multiple Text Boxes can be much easier if you hold the Shift Key down while selecting each Text Box. This way the change will affect all selected Text Boxes at once.
