Tutorial Description

Do something special for you Mom!
Learn how to make a personalized mother’s day card, and even add your own handwritten text.

Type a Message in Photoshop

To type a message in Photoshop, double-click on the smart object labeled ‘card’. This will open the Smart Object in a new window ready for editing. Use the Type Tool to write a message, then save the smart object. Your changes will automatically update on the final photo.

Use Your Own Handwritten Text

Add more personalization to this Mother’s Day card by including a handwritten message. First, write your message on a white piece of paper. Next, take a photo of the paper or scan it into your computer with a scanner.

Open the photo in Photoshop and transfer it to the smart object labeled ‘Card’. To open the smart object, double click on the thumbnail. Any changes you make to the smart object will automatically update on the final image.

If you want the white Background to disappear, change the blending mode of the Smart Object to ‘Darken’.
