First off, if you don’t have a Canva account yet, just click on the link in the description box below to sign up for free. Once you’ve logged in to your Canva account, use the search bar, or the suggested designs on your Canva homepage, to locate the design type you’d like to create and add foil lettering to, such as an Instagram post. Once that option populates, click on it.
You can either add your silver, gold or glitter letters to this blank template, or click on ‘templates’ from the left-hand side panel to add metallic foil lettering to an already existing Canva template. Let’s use a blank template to make it easier to visualize this process.
Click on ‘elements’ from the left-hand side panel, scroll down until you reach the ‘frames’ section, and then click on ‘see all’. Scroll down again until you reach the letters of the alphabet. Drag-and-drop the letters you wish to add silver, gold or glitter texture to.
Let’s start by writing out the word silver. You can resize and reposition the letters to ensure that they fit on your Canva design. You can also select all the letters, click on ‘position’ from the white panel up top, and then on ‘tidy up’ to ensure that the spacing between each of these letters is the same.
Now click on ‘photos’ from the left-hand side panel, and use the search bar to search for ‘silver’. Choose a silver photo of your choice, and drag-and-drop that photo into each of the letter frames to make silver text in Canva.
Alternatively, you can use a stock photo website of silver, gold or glitter to create foil lettering in Canva. Let’s click on ‘add page’ from the top, right-hand side of your design and go through that process.
Just like before, click on ‘elements’ from the left-hand side panel, ‘frames’, see all, and then drag-and-drop the letters of your choice onto your Canva design. This time, let’s add the word gold, and click on ‘position’ from the white panel up top, and then on ‘tidy up’ to ensure that the spacing between each of these letters is the same.
Now head over to the stock photo website of your choice, such the thestocks.im, for more details on that website, make sure to watch my video on ‘how to find free stock photos for websites’, I’l
