Photoshop: How to Create 3d “Card” Perspective Effect

I’ve been seeing a lot of these 3d “card” style designs lately and have always wondered how designers pulled them off in Photoshop or Illustrator. After no luck with a few online tutorials, I decided to take a go at it myself.

Full disclosure: I accidentally came up with this method on my own after some trial and error. I am sure there are multiple “right” ways to achieve this same effect but I gotta be honest, the end product looks just as good as any of them.

Just for fun I decided to make a YouTube video, since I’m also trying to learn video editing and production.

If you have any questions, I will do my best to answer them.

Next I would really like to learn more about actual perspective. Technically I am able to carry out the perspective task, but from a “look” perspective (no pun intended) I can never get it to look right.

And FYI: here is the end result.
