I'm not pleased with having to use thumbnails so I'm going to try it this way from now on. I hope you all are able to see these better as they have been made to fit the screen. Remember when I'm making a tag I usually always start out with 600x600 and sometimes I will resize by 85%. Of course you can do them however you like.

This tutorial was written by Jenny on 11-16-2008. Resemblance to any other tutorial is purely coincidental and unintentional. I am using the artwork of Amanda Fontaine for this tut.

Now you just need to copy and paste your tubes one at a time, resizing as you go. Do NOT add a drop shadow yet. Place the tubes to your liking and one by one you can use your selection tool to bring parts of the tube above the frame layer. Use the selection tool and draw out what part of the tube you want showing over the frame (see my tag for more info) right click on that layer,promote selection to layer,bring that layer to the top,select none. Once you've done all 3 that way you can then go back and add a drop shadow to the original tube layer.

Copy & Paste the Merry Christmas word art and place to your liking.

Copy & Paste the train as a new layer,resize,add drop shadow. See how I placed one of the arms from the tube over the train?
