Click the tag to preview at full size. This tutorial was written by Marta on December 21, 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 Albemarle Swash)
Mask of choice
Doodles of choice
ScrapKit *Winter Wonderland* by Diane at Candy's Treats.
You can purchase it HERE.

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

Let's get started:

Open a new image 600x500 and background set to white. Copy & paste Paper5 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 FrameSnow2 as a new layer. Using your magic wand, holding down the shift key, select each frame, Selections/Modify/Expand by 5. Open a new raster layer. Copy paper2 and paste into selection, select none.

Copy & paste your tube of choice. Duplicate. Close out the original. Select all, Float, Defloat, Modify, Feather, set to 53, Invert and hit delete until you get the desired effect. Change opacity to 63 and move under the frame layer.

Copy & paste Bow1 as a new layer, and move to the upper right of the frame. Add drop shadow.

Add doodles of your choice and place at the left lower corner of the frame. Duplicate, Mirror/Flip and place at the right upper corner of the frame.

Open up your original tube layer and move to desired position, and add drop shadow.

Add any additional 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!
