Create a Scrapbooking Card

New image with a size of 4 inches by 6 inches

1
Get the Paths tool and draw a path for the text.

2

To make it easier for you to see the path, you can go to Windows > Dockable Dialogue > Paths and you’ll be able to see the path by clicking on the eye icon

3
Type in the text you’d be using by clicking on the Text Tool. Set the Font Style and size according to your liking. You can experiment on this for a couple of times.

4

Now go to Layer > Text Along Path

5

You’ve got the curved text there. But hold it right there, because there’s something more to do. In the paths menu, right click on the text path and click Path to Selection.

6

Then, go to Layers Menu and make a new transparent layer. After which, fill this layer with FG Color that you’ve set for the curved text.

To see the result, hide the two paths by clicking the eye icon on the paths menu.

Now, you can change the background for the Scrap Card.

Then finish off the Scrap Card layout with other texts and elements.
