    I'm looking for a proper way to create business cards with gimp.

    Both vertically and horizontally.

    Mainly just the layout for standard sized business cards, with 8 (or more for vertical) on one page ready for print.

    Unfortunately I've tried all of those and they never turned out right.

    My biggest problem is when I print them, they're either way too small or way too big.

    I would love a tutorial on how to make this card, also with proper printing instructions:

    For printing you're on your own. The design is also relatively easy, a dark green to a lighter green gradient on the back, and a similar gradient on the front.

    It may look easy, but I still don't know how to do it. Especially creating that simple wave shape.

    I have a post over there too. So for no luck.

    The wave can be done with a curved path.
