Create a Greeting Card in Photoshop Elements

Design and print a personalized greeting card with Photoshop Elements


Creating a custom greeting card is just one of the fun things you can do in Photoshop Elements. But the greeting card project in Photoshop Elements only gets you started on the front card design and doesn't give you a finished printable card. This tutorial will show you how to do that including adding text and special effects, embellishing the card with additional artwork, all the way through printing the finished card.

Photoshop Elements 5 or later is required for this tutorial. Screen shots were taken in version 6, but I have added notes regarding any differences in version 5.
