Step 09: Set Rectangle Stroke & SizeTo change the size of the Rectangle's Stroke, select the Fill & Stroke Icon and click on the Stroke Style Tab (the 3rd Tab in the Fill & Stroke Window).
Set Width to 0.011 in.
Step 10: Set Rectangle FillWith the Rectangle still selected, click on the Fill Tab in the Fill & Stroke Window.
Set R to 255, G to 246 & B to 213.
Step 11: Set Rectangle OpacityAt the bottom of the Fill Tab you will see Opacity, %. Set this to 50.
This could also be achieved by changing the Opacity Value at the bottom left of the screen.
Notice the slight difference:
Opacity 100% Before
Opacity 50% After
Step 12: Public Domain Vector ClipartNow we can add an Image to the Flyer. The Public Domain Vector Clipart for this Restaurant Flyer was downloaded from Clker.
The Clipart is called Moself Cutlery by Lyo.
Once the image has been downloaded, you will need to place it into the Flyer.
Step 13: Import ImageTo place the new images, go to File > Import which will open the Select File to Import Window.
After you've located the file, click the Open button at the bottom right of the window.
A window will appear asking you to Link or Embed your image.
Select Embed > OK.
Your image will appear with 8 Arrows around it.
Step 14: Resize ImageTo Resize the Image, set the Width Box to 2 in and the Height Box to 3 in. Then hit Enter or click anywhere on the Flyer.
Place the Resized image in the center of the Rectangle. Set its Opacity to 50% as well. Hit the Enter Key or click somewhere on the Flyer.
Step 15: Order ObjectsWith the Image still selected, click on the Lower to Bottom Icon on the Tools Control Bar so that the Image will now be placed behind the Rectangle.

Step 16: Free FontsNext we can start adding text to the Flyer. For the Restaurant Flyer Title, SubTitles and Telephone, the Font used is Not Mary Kate by Nick's Fonts, which was downloaded from FontSpace.
If you want to view more of Nick's Fonts check out his website at Nicksfonts.
For the remaining text I used a Font called Monoglyceride. It can be downloaded from FontFreak and is designed by Tepid Monkey Fonts.
(Note for a newly downloaded Font to be usable on your machine, you must first install it. Any Font installed while Inkscape is open, will not be visible in the Font List. To correct this, you will have to restart the Inkscape program after Font(s) installation.)
Step 17: Insert TextTo insert the text, go to the Tool Box and select the Text Tool. Click anywhere on the page and type "Aly's Restaurant".
Go to the Tool Properties Bar, click the First Down Arrow and select NotMaryKate from the Font List.
Then set the Font Size to "56" by clicking on the Next Down Arrow to the right and selecting "56" or you can just click in the box and type in that number, whichever is faster for you.
Select the title and move it into the desired location on the flyer.
Repeat for Subtitles setting the Font Size to 40 and Telephone Info setting Font Size to 28.
For the Authentic Text and the Menu Items, repeat the steps to select Monoglyceride from the Font List, setting Font Sizes to 36 and 20 respectively.
Center the Authentic Text by clicking on the Align Center Icon.
Set the Alignment for the Menu Items to Left.
Since all 4 Menu Titles will have the same Color we will be making the change to all 4 of them at the same time. To do this, hold down the Shift Key while selecting each Menu Title.
Once selected, go up to the Menu Bar and click on the Fill and Stroke Icon.
In the Fill Tab select the Flat Color Icon then set R to 255, G to 102, and B to 0 for Orange.
Then go to the Stroke Paint Tab and select the No Paint Icon.
The Font should look like this:
Step 18: Save FileTo save your file, go to File > Save. It will be saved as a Scalable Vector Graphic (svg) file by default.
There you have it, we have created an eyecatching, colorful Restaurant Flyer by implementing a very simple step by step process.
Your completed Restaurant Flyer using the OpenSource Professional Graphic Design Application - Inkscape should look like this:
