This is the result I get when I edit the Smart Object layer with my design This is the result I get when I edit the Smart Object layer with my design

So, what you are saying is that you do not know how to skew it to fit the "stack" in the background? –  Benteh Apr 2 at 19:03
    
To be honest I am not well experienced with PS. I work mostly on Illustrator. I know about the skew in PS but really haven' t used it till now. Also I thought the template was supposed to do the skewing by itself –  Adrian Apr 2 at 19:21

Perhaps a screencap of the layers in the unedited template would be helpful. It is also unclear to me if "paste my design into smart object" means you are making a new smart object or editing an existing one, and if editing, is that smart object skewed when editing it? –  horatio Apr 2 at 20:11

Don't past the design into the document, edit the smart object of the original business card, this will open the smart object in new window, paste your design into that. Save and the original document will update with your smart object you just saved.

I am doing that only. I am right clicking the smart object layer and then click edit the content option and then change the design in that –  Adrian Apr 2 at 20:51
    
does it also happen with this template? iceflowstudios.com/2013/freebies/… –  Ctrl Alt Design Apr 2 at 20:59

ok it worked for me, what version of photoshop are you using? If the Transform was created in a later version of photoshop and you are using an older one, it can lose that the shape. I tested this in CS6 –  Ctrl Alt Design Apr 3 at 2:45
