Now, let’s see how we can make it.
1. Open Lunacy.
2. Choose the Artboard you want; we’ve picked Social Media “Dribble Shot HD”.
3. Adjust the zoom to see the full artboard.
4. Select the Rectangle Tool and stretch it across the entire artboard.
5. Change the color of the rectangle. Choose the fill, for example, a gradient.
6. Add two center points on the gradient. Use colors from the gradient’s opposite sides: pink-pink, and pale pink, in this case.
7. Connect the two center points somewhere in the middle of the gradient for a sharp transition.
8. Open the photos library.
9. Find a photo. We’ll search for the “letter”.
10. Select a photo and stretch it over the artboard.
11. Remove the background of the photo so that only the envelope remains. Use the “Remove background” button in the right panel.
12. Rotate the image using the controls around the object or in the right panel.
13. Select the Rectangle Tool and add it above the photo.
14. Change the color of the rectangle.
15. Add a shadow to the rectangle.
16. Return to the photo library and find another image, for example, “donut”.
17. Select a photo and paste it above the rectangle.
18. Remove the background of a photo using the Background removal button in the right panel.
19. Add one more image from the photo library.
20. Remove the background of a photo using the Background removal button in the right panel.

22. Fix the position of the photos.
23. Use the Text tool to add some text.
24. Type in or paste the text.
25. Adjust the font, size, color, and spacing of the text block.
26. Find the secondary image in the photo library.
27. Add a photo to the top right angle of the artboard.
