Love Roses Text in Photoshop for Valentine Day

Tutorials Text Effects 26238 Views February 5th, 2013

Learn how to create a beautiful love red rose text in Photoshop for Valentine Day. To create this text effect I will use a 3D action for creating the #d text effect and some interesting layer styles with creative red rose patterns. If you want you can check out my previous tutorial on how to create a love heart text effect in Photoshop


Start with a nice dark background. To create the background you can use a grunge texture or you can try with a brick texture; whatever texture you will use you have to darken the image using the Brightness/Contrast adjustment. Time to add the love message. Write a simple text using a font that you like similar to the one that I have used.

Call this first layer Original Text; we will keep it to make a copy when it is necessary. Duplicate this layer and hide the Original Text. Call this new layer Text Inner Shadow. Set the Fill to 0% and add an Inner Shadow like in the image.

Duplicate the Original Text and place it above the Text Inner Shadow. Set the Fill to 0% and add a Stroke like in the image. Convert this layer into a smart object. Call this layer Text Outline 1.

Now I will add a golden glitter style to the Text Outline 1 layer. So open the layer style window and add the following layer styles.

So far your love text effect should look similar to this one. It looks kind of nice as it is now. Download the ZIP file at the end of this tutorial and you will find the text style for this layer named gold-glitter. Simply load the ASL file in Photoshop and apply the gold-glitter style.

Duplicate the Text Outline 1 layer, clear layer styles and rename it Text Outline 2. Simply add these new styles tho the second outline layer. Set the Opacity of this layer to 70& and the Fill to 0%

Your text effect should look like this; if you are not sure about the settings for all the layers I will give you the ASL file with the styles that I have used; it will be much easier for you to make this tutorial. Download the ZIP file at the end of this tutorial and you will find the text style for this layer named bevel-emboss. Simply load the ASL file in Photoshop and apply the bevel-emboss style.

Duplicate the Original Text three times and call these layers Rose Pattern. Group these layers into a new group called Rose Pattern Layers. Open a new canvas of around 100x100px size. Copy this rose PNG into your file and resize it to fit. Add a soft Drop Shadow effect to the rose to add it a little depth. Now go to the Edit menu and choose Define Pattern.

am I the only person that just got lost doing this?? On the second pic of the tutorial you have just the shadow showing without the white text. Any information on how to get that step done correctly would be greatly appreciated. I'm thinking a step is missing or something reply

When I run action in CS6 it asks for shape layers? is the 3D action compatible withCs6? or am i doing something wrong. otherwise this is a great tuturial! reply
12:30 AM Thursday, February 21, 2013
The action should work ok in CS6 for text layers, vector shapes and raster layers. You have to start with only one layer (make sure it is selected/active) and simply play the action like shown in the image.

You have to download the ZIP File, extract the ATN file and load it in Photoshop.
Go to Actions Panel > Load Actions > and choose the actions4photoshop(3D-generator-ver1).atn file reply

Thank u done that but when I play the action its not coming out right, looks very deep :( like its done the action about 5-6 times, any idea how 2 get it like yours ? reply
1:12 AM Wednesday, May 15, 2013
I really have no idea why that is happening; I think is something with your Photoshop settings. Maybe you have to delete the action, restart Photoshop and load the action again. reply

Hi what is the name of the gloss contour you used on the step 4 for bevel and emboss? And the gradient overlay?

Many thanks :) reply
1:59 AM Wednesday, February 18, 2015
The Bevel and Emboss gloss contour is made by modifying one of the default Adobe Photoshop preset gloss contour curves.

The Gradient Overlay colors are (black, #d5a592, black)
