This tutorial was written by Jenny on 11-24-08. Resemblance to any other tutorial is purely coincidental and unintentional. I am using the artwork of Lacy Clagg. You need a license to use her artwork. I am licensed to these images through LCTS. You can now purchase her tubes at Creative Design Outlet.
6 Tubes or images of choice
Christmas Thyme PTU Scrapkit by Krissys Scraps (this kit gives me the warm fuzzies lol, it's a great kit filled with lots of goodies)
Font of choice (I'm using Tracy)
Open a new canvas 600x600, flood fill white.
Copy and paste paper of choice as a new layer, resize to around 65%, add drop shadow.
Copy and paste another paper of choice as a new layer, resize to around 65%, add drop shadow,free rotate 11 degrees right,resize 95%.
Copy and paste another paper of choice and follow the steps above except this time change the rotate to left.
Copy and paste flower of choice as a new layer,resize if needed,add drop shadow, place toward the top left corner, see my tag for placement.
Copy and paste a few buttons,resize,add drop shadow,and place in the right corner of the tag.
Now open up both the scalloped frames.
Copy and paste one of them as a new layer,resize,place in the center of your canvas.
Select the other scalloped frame,image,rotate,rotate clockwise 90, copy and paste as a new layer,resize if needed, position over the other frame so that the middle frames overlap each other, see my tag for placement.
Using your magic wand select inside all areas of the frame,selections,modify,expand by 5.
Copy and paste a paper of choice as a new layer,resize if needed,making sure that paper covers inside of each of the frame areas.
Now one by one you can copy and paste your tubes or images,resize and place to your liking.
Make sure all tubes/images and that one paper is below both the frame layers.
Selections,invert, now starting with the paper layer, go through and hit delete on that layer as well as each tube layer, selection none.
Add a drop shadow to each tube and each frame layer.
You may need to go through and cut off some excess tubes that may show through behind other tubes, you'll see what I mean if this happens with yours it will be noticable.
Now you can copy and paste ornaments,stockings of choice,a bow of choice, resize and place to your liking.
Close off all layers except for the 3 large papers, merge visible,hide this layer.
Unhide the frame,paper background,tube layers,merge visible.
Unhide all layers, merge visible, resize the tag if you wish.
Add copyright info, text and you're done. Hope you enjoyed this tutorial.
