Description

Red Hearts Valentine Card features a lavender coloured portable typewriter seen from above. The typewriter is set against a dark damson-coloured background. In the typewriter is a long sheet of paper on which is written ‘Be My Valentine’, repeated several times, with hearts floating up the page.

American Typewriter

We used the American Typewriter font or typeface for the Be My Valentine text. It’s a modern slab serif typeface created in 1974.

Above all, we chose this font because it looks like a typewriter font. Of course, we wanted a retro statement, one that had a touch of vintage design about it. The American Typewriter font is available as a desktop font, which is what we use in Photoshop to make our greeting cards. To clarify, the card is made in layers in Photoshop.

Once we had the typewriter image we added a ‘sheet’ of paper in a Photoshop. That layer is over the top of the layer with the typewriter image. Then, in order to make the paper seem more real, we used the Liquify tool to bend the top of it gently. Secondly, we used a vector mask and carefully cut through the paper. As you can guess, the purpose of that was to make it appear that the paper was below the bar of the typewriter.

Red Hearts

Finally, we added the text and then added the red hearts on another layer.

There are other fonts that look like typewriter fonts, though, some dating back to the late 1800s.
