Click the tag to preview at full size. This tutorial was written by Marta on June 3, 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 DianaCTT)
Mask of choice
EC4 - Gradient Glow
ScrapKit *Strawberry Fields* by Patty of Honored Scraps.
You can purchase it HERE.

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

Let's get started:

Open a new image 550x550 and background set to white. Copy & paste paper3 as a new layer. Open your mask of choice, Layers/New Mask Layer/From Image and find the mask in the drop down list. Delete mask layer, and merge group.

Copy & paste frame3 as a new layer. Using your Magic Wand, click inside frame, Selections/Modify/Expand by 5. Open a new raster layer, move under the frame layer, and floodfill with #659115 or a color to match your tube. Open a new raster layer, move under the frame layer, add any text you want. Change the blend mode to soft light. Add drop shadow to frame and merge these layers.

Copy & paste flowervine1 as a new layer and move to the right of the frame layer. Add drop shadow. Duplicate. Image/Mirror and position to your liking.

Copy & paste bow5 as a new layer. Move to the bottom right of the frame layer. Add drop shadow.

Copy & paste your tube of choice as a new layer. Move to desired position. Duplicate. Working on the original layer, change Blend Mode to Luminance(L) and opacity to 81%.

Add any additional flowers, ribbons, 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!
