♥ Chrimbo Time ♥

Click the tag to preview at full size. This tutorial was written by Marta on October 22, 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 CityHeatROB)
Mask of choice
ScrapKit *Happy Chrimbo* by Ali at Designs by Ali.
You can purchase it HERE.

I am using the artwork of PinUpToons, you can find his licensed art at CILM.

Let's get started:

Open a new image 550x550 and background set to white. Copy & paste Paper21 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. Copy & paste Paper15 as a new layer and move under the frame layer. Using your Magic Wand, click inside the frame, Selections/Modify/Expand by 7/Selections/Invert and hit Delete on the paper layer. Add drop shadow.

Copy & paste the Calendar as a new layer and move it to the lower right of the frame. Image/Rotate/Right/17 degrees. Using your Eclipse Tool, draw a circle around the number 25.

Add any additional sleighs, bows, baubles, candles, 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!
