Click the tag to preview at full size. This tutorial was written by Marta on February 11, 2009. Any resemblance to any other tutorial is coincidental. Do not copy and paste this tutorial elsewhere on the net. Absolutely NO Scripting and/or translating of this tutorial.

For this tutorial you will need:

Tube of choice
Font of choice (I used Burgues Script)
Mask - Vix_Mask176 - You can download HERE
Penta - Color Dot
ScrapKit *A Touch of Spring* by Tina of Saphira's World.
You can purchase it HERE.

I am using the artwork of Elias Chatzoudis, you can find his licensed art at MPT.

Let's get started:

Open a new image 550x550 and background set to white. Open a new raster layer, foreground set to #B7DF6E, background null, using your Flood Fill Tool, fill this layer. Effects/Texture Effects/Weave/Set to Gap Size/2, Width/30, Opacity/100, Weave & Gap Color/#FFFFFF, Fill Gaps checked.

Copy & paste paper6 as a new layer. Open Vix_Mask176, Layers/New Mask Layer/From Image and find the mask in the drop down list. Delete mask layer, and merge group. Effects/Penta/Color Dot/Set to default settings.

Copy & paste paper2 as a new layer. Copy & paste your tube as a new layer. Image/Resize/120%. Effects/Penta/Color Dot/Set to default settings. Copy & paste frame2 as a new layer. Using your Magic Wand, click inside the frame, Selections/Modify/Expand by 4/Selections/Invert and hit Delete on your tube and paper layers. Add drop shadow to your frame and tube layers and merge.

Copy & paste flowerstring1 as a new layer and place it across the frame. Copy & paste bow1 as a new layer and place at the center bottom of the frame. Copy & paste flower3 as a new layer and place above the bow. Copy & paste your tube and place to desired position. Add drop shadow to these layers.

Add any additional bows, buttons, ribbons, flowers, butterflies, or elements of your choice.

Crop or resize to your liking. Add your text, copyright info, and watermark, and save as a jpg, png, or gif file.

That's it.. all done!
