Well Officially Valentine’s Day is fast approaching and to celebrate the day I decided to create a new Valentine’s Day Wallpaper. I always thought Care Bears were the mascots of the seasons so I used them in this wallpaper. So let’s begin.

First open a document 1920×1080 and fill the layer with white. Then add a gradient overlay, starting with #38A1FF and ending in #1BC0FF

Now Drag out two vertical guides 50 pixels from either side. The add two horizontal guides one at 150 and the other at 450. Then using the guides and your pen tool create a white arch.

Then make guides 50 pixels from the top and sides of the base rainbow. Then draw an arch within the outer borders and the ones you just made. Fill this new selection with #E4BBBB.

Then make guides 50 pixels from the top and sides of the pink band. Then draw an arch within the pink guides and the ones you just made. Fill this new selection with #E4D5BB.

Then make guides 50 pixels from the top and sides of the orange band. Then draw an arch within the orange guides and the ones you just made. Fill this new selection with #D8E4BB.

Then make guides 50 pixels from the top and sides of the green band. Then draw an arch within the green guides and the ones you just made. Fill this new selection with #BBDEE4.

Then make guides 50 pixels from the top and sides of the blue band. Then draw an arch within the blue guides and the ones you just made. Fill this new selection with #BBC0E4.

Then make guides 50 pixels from the top and sides of the purple band. Then draw an arch within the purple guides and the ones you just made. Fill this new selection with #DABBE4.

Make a new layer and grab a round white brush. Then using various sizes of the brush make your cloud bed.

Next grab you elipse tool and make an oval in the center of the clouds in color #BFD0E1. Then go to Filter > Blur > Gaussian Blur, set the blur to 20 – 50 and hit OK.

Follow those same steps to make three smaller ones like below.

Now make a new layer and draw a heart with your pen tool. Fill it with this gradient #EA9A9A to #B50C0C. Now CTRL+Click the heart layer to make a selection. Make a new layer and fill the selection with White. With the selection still active grab your marquee tool and mover the selection to the right and bottom 10 pixels. Delete the white within the selection and any extra you do not like. Then go to Filter > Blur > Gaussian Blur, set the blur to 10 – 15 and hit OK. Duplicate that layer, flip it horzontally and merge the two layers. Finally CTRL+Click the heart layer again and cut the white inside the heart to a new layer and delete the old. Merge the leyers of the heart together CTRL+E.

Then place a copy like below.

Now place an oval shade on the big heart like you did the clouds.

And again.

And again.

And again.

And again.

And again.

Now that we have our hearts let’s add our Care Bears. Download Love A Lot Bear here and place her on the large heart.

Download Luck Bear here and place him on the far right center shade.

Download Trueheart Bear here and place him on the left side of the center shade but not on the edge.

Download Wish Bear here and place him on the high shade on the clouds.

Download Bedtime Bear here and place him on the far left small shades.

Download Sunshine Bear here and place him next to Luck Bear.

Download Grumpy Bear here and place him between Trueheart and Sunshine Bear.

Download Secret Bear here and place him to the left of Trueheart Bear.

Lastly we need to add our Holiday font. So select your font tool and choose this font style “Snell BT”, set the size to 90, the color to #BE2525 and the highlight Faux Bold. Then using the pen tool make an arch at the bottom of the rainbow. Then reselect your font tool and type out “Happy Valentine‚Äôs Day” on the arch path. Last but not least add a slight white drop shadow. Set the Drop Shadow to Overlay, Color #FFFFFF, Opacity to 60%, Distance to 7, Spread to 0, and Size to 10. And there you have it a super cute wallpaper for a super cute time of the year. Thanks for reading.
