Open a new file 800 x 800, 72px resolution.

Fill the background with light brown #BFB069

Select the Text Tool and a bold font (I used Boulder at 150pt), foreground colour black.

Type the first word of your text.

Right click on the layer in the layers palette and click on Rasterize Type.

Ctrl + T to transform the text. Right click anywhere in the box and click on Perspective.

Using one of the bottom corner handles, drag the bottom of the word out, making it wider at the bottom than at the top. Then using one of the top corner handles, drag the word in a little.

Hit the return key to accept the transformation.
