Free Valentine’s Day Mini Cards and Accordion Book Designs

Valentine’s Day is coming up and we wanted to share some card templates that are perfect for your personal use or for photographers to gift to their customers – Mini Cards and Accordion Templates.

In case you are a long time customer of MCP Actions, these cards may look familiar.  They the much requested re-releases from 2011 and 2012.

Thank you to the Elizabeth Grace Photographer for the polka dot Mini Valentine’s Day Card templates and to Photographer Cafe for the modern Mini Valentine’s Cards and Mini Accordion Books.

Just use one of the three SHARE buttons directly below this text and then you’ll see the download.

The templates are fully-layered .psd files, not actions.  These may not be modified and sold as layered files.

Basic Photoshop CS+ Instructions (may vary slightly in Elements):

  • Unzip the file you download.
  • Open the Cards in Photoshop (FILE – OPEN). These do not get “installed” as they are just templates, not actions.
  • Insert your photo into the template. There are numerous ways to do this, from the place command, to copy and paste, to dragging the photo into the template.
  • Make sure to move your photo in the layers palette above the indicated layer, if it is not already there.
  • Resize if your photo is too large, by using the EDIT – FREE TRANSFORM. Hold the SHIFT key down while you drag one the corners in to resize, so the ratio stays the same, and the photo does not distort.
  • Clip the photo to the insert layer. There are many ways to do this.  The easiest to explain is to go to LAYER – CREATE CLIPPING MASK. (If you are using Elements, try CTRL + G or Command + G to clip). You can re-size more and move your image as needed.

If you are a more advanced user, you can add/delete/change colors. All fonts are customizable so you can match your studio’s design and color palette or go all-out with pink and red for Valentine’s Day!  If you do not have a particular font on your computer, you can search for it online, or you can just substitute it with one you own. Enjoy!

    The accordion book is sized for “Bay Photo”…what does that mean? Also, it is 17.5” x 3.25″…which I can’t technically print on my home printer. Any help for printing this would be appreciated.

    I am able to download but not open. It says “unable to unarchive” Any insight to what I’m doing wrong? (My on a MAC if that helps.)

    I am using Photoshop Elements 11 and I’m trying to work with the design labeled “2 wallet design”-it’s the one with pink to the left and a yellow heart overlapping where the pink is and where the photo should be. I open my photo and drag it over the black and hit “command + G” (I’m using a Mac) and then re-size to fit, but it overlaps the heart, instead of the heart overlapping the photo. Is there a way to fix this? Thank you so much!

    Thank you! These are adorable! I’m a little confused about the wallet/business size-does that mean that when I go to print it I must choose wallet size? If I choose something bigger will it get pixel-y? Thanks!

      Yes – they are mini cards – like valentine’s usually are – the kind people hand out. Does that make sense?

      • January 25, 2013 at 12:29 pm —

        Yes, makes sense. I noticed that you replied to another comment and mentioned that you can change the image size in PSE if you wanted the picture to be bigger. Would that not also make it pixel-y?

    Thanks! Can I offer to create cards for my clients for a Valentines special using these templates?

    I am trying to unzip and it is saying it is password protected. Is this normal or did I do something wrong?
