Free date marking system available



I came up with the idea for this dating system last night while I was looking through some magazines. I may end up reworking it, though, since I want to change the days to words to differentiate it from the years. BTW, I used two digits for the years, so "00" can mean either 1900 or 2000. I figure the look of the picture will give some clue as to which date it's supposed to represent. :) The file is a .png in black. I can think of several ways to mark out the date you want. In this layout, I changed the blend mode to Soft Light and then selected out the date numbers I needed and gave them each their own layer. Then, the blend mode was changed back to normal and I inversed the color to white. (Ctrl-I is the inverse shortcut.) I finally added an exaggerated height to the shadow to make them look like they were floating off the page. The paper is from my Dotty Doodle Paper Pack (recolored), the font is Two Peas Wedding Day, and the tear is from Atomic Cupcake. You can download the Page Edge Date Marker here: LINK RETURNING SOON
