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). ~Black Ice PTU scrapkit by Tasha's Playground which you can get HERE. ~Tube of choice. I used the artwork of Katerina Koukiotis, you must have a license to use this art which you can get from PSP Tube Stop HERE. ~Template of choice. I used KanDee Christmas temp 8 which you can get HERE. ~Mask of choice. I used WSL mask 363 which you can get HERE. ~Font of choice. I used Valentina JF. 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 template layer in layer box > Alpha to Selection > CTRL I > Select paper layer in layer box > Delete). These are the papers I used: Paper 3 Paper 4 Paper 8 Paper 13 Paper 15 ~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 tube, add drop shadow. 4. Open and place the following elements: Snowy roses Snowy branch 2 Snowflakes Snow mound Feather Leaf 2 Rose Rose 2 ~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 (except Snowflakes & Snow mound)~ 5. Open Paper 9. 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!!!!!!!!!!
