Need help with photoshop (designing stuff) for custom hockey cards

I started to make custom hockey cards a while back but the thing that's holding me back is my inability to design fancy-ish borders or any designs. I can design basic cards like vintage ones (one in my avatar) but not anything cool looking. Can't figure out the pen tool either. For example, if I wanted to make a border such as in the outline below, how would I proceed?

I also tried to replicate this card to poor results. I can't figure out how to make those lines fade so perfectly or how to do that faded out white effect done near the botton of the cards.

The ones I designed so far are mostly vintage variations like this. It's hard to make modern ones though without using some design brush or something.
