Ok, you need to decided whether you are fading from orange to white (paper color) or orange to transparent.
1) Create a document the correct size you want
2) Choose the colour you want.
3) Use the gradient tool. Make sure you choose the correct setting from the options bar. (Foreground to background, or foreground to transparent. Then Linear gradient. These tools are shown below.

And it's settings appear on the option bar at the top left. You have the gradient picker that allows you to choose between what colours the shading operates. Choose foreground to backkground and make sure the background is white.
Then you have the the gradient style. Choose Linear.
