How to Customize a Business Card Template
For this tutorial, I'll be using this awesome Creative Personal Business Card template. After opening the template into Photoshop, start by updating it with your name and pertinent information using the Type Tool (T).
To change the colors for the bottom rainbow bars, simply Double-click the Fx option to access the Layer Styles and change the Gradient Overlay to the colors you desire.
Last but not least, add a quick picture! Drag and Drop the photo of your choice onto the Smart Object designated for the main photo, resize it with the Free Transform Tool (Control-T), and then hit Save to lock your changes into place.
