Tips & Tricks: How to create a block shadow with CorelDraw


I wrote earlier that I was going to share how I created the shadow style above. See steps below:

1. Create a square (you may use other shapes)

2. Create your icon (you can also use text) place it in the square.

3. Draw the shadow using the ‘freehand tool’, place it behind the icon/object

4. Using the ‘transparency tool’ apply ‘transparency’ of about 80%. Then ‘place inside container’ (or inside frame if you are using CorelDraw X6) of the shape.

You should have this. Easy!
