This tutorial is of my own creation and any resemblance to any other tuts is purely coincidental. This tutorial is for personal use only, using it for monetary gain is against our TOU's. Supplies Needed: ~Gimp (any version will do). ~Pink Frosting PTU scrapkit which you can get from Krissy's Scraps HERE. ~Tube of choice. I used the art of Baron Von Lind, you must have a license to use his art which you can get HERE. ~Template of choice. I used Template 135 which you can get from Blissfully Beth HERE. ~Mask of choice. I used MC mask 9 which you can get HERE. ~Font of choice. I used Elizabeth Semi Script. Let's get started!!! 1. Open a new layer ( I prefer a large canvas, so I make mine 1050x656). Make your canvas transparent (Layer > Transparency > Color to Alpha). 2. Open template in PSD format, move layers of template around until they are the way you like them. ~Add paper from scrapkit to individual layers of the template (Right click on layer in layer box > Alpha to Selection > CTRL I > Select paper layer in layer box > Delete). These are the papers I used: Paper 2 Paper 3 Paper 6 Paper 7 Paper 10 ~I added noise to some of the template layers to make them look glittery (Filters > Noise > RGB Noise). ~I colorized some of the template layers to better match the scrapkit (Colors > Colorize > play with the setting until you get the desired color). ~Add drop shadow to template layers (Filters > Light & Shadow > Drop Shadow). 3. Open tubes, I used a full body and close-ups. I lowered the opacity on the close-ups to 50 (at the top of the layer box you will see a bar you can slide to change the opacity of the selected layer). Add drop shadow to full body tube. 4. Open and place the following elements: Lights 2 Christmas Tree 1 Gift Box 3 Stocking 1 Cheeky Bow 1 Cheeky Bow 3 Christmas Ball 2 Christmas Ball 3 Holly 1 ~Some of the elements may need to be sized down. Using your scale tool in your tool box adjust the pixel size until element is the correct size~ ~Add drop shadow to all elements~ 5. Open Paper 11 6. Open mask 7. Add mask to paper (click HERE for a tut on using masks) 8. Merge Layers (Image > Merge Visible Layers). 9. Crop Image (Image > Autocrop Image). 10. Scale image to desired size (Image > Scale Image). 11. Add copyright info and name 12. Save as .png ALL DONE!!!!!!!!!!
