A Blue Christmas


A Blue Christmas

This tutorial was written by Jenny on 6-16-2009. Resemblance to any other tutorial is purely coincidental and unintentional. I am using the artwork of Chrissy Clark. You need a license to use her artwork. I have a license through Artistic Minds Inc.
You can now purchase her tubes at Creative Design Outlet.

Christmas in July is just around the corner so I'm in the mood to write some Christmas tuts!

Supplies Needed:
1 Tube of choice
Snow Princess FTU Scrapkit by Yvette
WSL_Mask297 by Weescotslass
MuRa's Meister Copies (optional)
Font of choice
(I'm using WWFlakes to drop a few snowflakes around and Christmas for the name)


Open a new canvas 600 x 600 we'll resize later. Flood fill white.
New Raster Layer, select with magic wand, copy & paste Paper13 into selection, select none, apply mask.
Using a color from your tube and the change to target brush tool, recolor Paper13.
Resize mask layer 85%.

Copy & Paste Frame 4 as a new layer, resize 85%, add drop shadow.

Copy & Paste Paper11 as a new layer, resize 50%, again recolor using a color from your tube and the change to target brush tool.

Copy & Paste bow of choice, recolor same as above, resize to your liking, place in top left corner of the frame and free rotate left 15 degrees, add a drop shadow.

Copy & Paste tube of choice, resize if needed, add drop shadow, place in the center of the frame on the outside.

Copy & Paste Bauble of choice, recolor, resize to your liking and place in your tubes hand if possible, add drop shadow.

Copy & Paste Tree and place to the right of the frame on the outside, recolor to match the rest of your tag, add drop shadow.

Duplicate the Bauble that you placed earlier, place on the tree, duplicate again and arrange to your liking.

Copy & Paste bow of choice, recolor, resize small to your liking, add drop shadow and place on the tree, duplicate and arrange to your liking on the tree.

Copy & Paste presents as a new layer, recolor each, duplicate if you'd like, resize to your liking, add drop shadow and place under tree.

OPTIONAL: Copy & Place Flower2 as a new layer, add drop shadow, effects, plugins, MuRa's Meister Copies, encircle, ok, move below frame and above mask layer.

Resize your canvas if you'd like. Add copyright info and text and you're done.
