All the elements used in this design are available in Canva. If you are not using a pro version then I would recommend you to avail of their 30 days free trial period and have full freedom to know about Canva.

  • The Shinny star used in this design is the only element from outside. You can download this star from my google drive link here.
  • For the yellow brushstroke in the center of the design, First, you need to download it as PNG transparent file and then need to re-upload it to apply adjustment as per the below screenshot.

  • I have applied two-tone gradients at the end of the design, move this gradient backward until you bring it to the top of background.
  • When you will complete this design, Download it as JPG. Use the Instagram post size and upload it here. Go to element and select rectangle shape, apply a suitable color for this shape as well as for the background. Increase the size of this shape a bit more than the original JPG image and move it backward. Now increase the brightness for this shape, blur it, and reduce the transparency to achieve the shadow look as shown in the final flyer.
