Tutorial
First go on google/yahoo image and look up something like "Pokemon Trainer Sprites"

Pick an image and either save it, or copy it and paste it into paint. If the image you picked has multiple images, then just cut out the ones that you don't want.

Then you're just left with one sprite. Now it's time to look up some trainer cards. Usually, I just get pictures and add stuff onto them.

When I get actual pictures for a trainer card, I draw a small box under it.
Then I copy it and keep pasting it until there are six little blank squares under the background. If you haven't resized the image, then now's the time.

Make sure it's around the same size as a normal trainer card.
Next you get a header and footer for your trainer card. If they are not the right color, then either change them with the color palette, or go find a different set of header/footer.

Now use the already made trainer card as a guide.
Now place the header and footer on your trainer card.

Now it's almost time to put the six boxes onto the trainer card, but first you need a pokemon sprite.
Now you just need to look at the boxes and pokemon sprites. Place the boxes over each wanted sprite and erase anything still on the outside. Then place each box on your trainer card. Make sure there is still enough room for a trainer sprite.

Now all you have to do is move the sprite to its saved spot and your done(except for the name, but I'm sure you know how to do that).
Now save it(DO NOT SAVE IT IN JPEG, THAT WILL ADD IN A BILLION PIXELS THAT NEED TO BE CLEANED UP. SAVE IT IN PNG).
