Supplies Needed:
Tube of choice (close-up preferably), I am using Ismael Rac found here
Scrap kit Crystal Ice by Chica's Scraps
Template Vaybs Misfit Xmas1 found here
My supplies (hanger) here

Open the template, duplicate and close the original. Delete the copyright layer and word art. Resize the canvas 700 x 700.

Select the Ornament frame, click in the center with the Magic Wand, go to Selections - Modify - Expand by 5.

Open a paper of choice, resize if needed. Copy and paste as a new layer below the frame. Go to Selections - Invert and hit delete on your keyboard.

I changed the color of the template and elements to match the color in my tube, if you are using a different tube this is up to you. If using the same one and would like to use the same colors I used #014ea1 (hue is 150 and saturation is 252) for the dark blue and #bcc7e6 (hue is 159 and saturation is 117) for the light blue.

I used the colors above for the glitter ornament frame, and for the tree. You can choose what color you like best…lol.

I also selected the layer the word art was on and used a paper instead, you can do this or just change the color.

Copy and paste the tube as a new layer, place inside the ornament frame, make sure this layer is below the “glass” layer. Erase any of the tube that’s out past the ornament. Apply a drop shadow.

Open Branch 2 and resize by 30 percent. Copy and paste as a new layer, place inside the frame to the right. Apply a drop shadow. Duplicate and place on top of the one we just added. Duplicate once more and mirror. Place on the left behind the tube.

Open Candy Cane 2 and resize by 25 percent. Copy and paste as a new layer. Place on the right on top of the frame. Apply a drop shadow.

Open Christmas Ball 1 and Christmas ball 2, resize both by 25 percent. Copy and paste one as a new layer.

Open the Hanger included in my supplies. Copy and paste as a new layer, place on top of the ring in the ornament frame. Erase part of the string to make it look attached. Move the ball just below this hanger to make it look like its hanging. Repeat this for the second ball. Apply a drop shadow to all layers.

Open Iced Branch 1 and resize by 30 percent. Copy and paste as a new layer. Place in the lower left hand side of the layer where the word art will go, apply a drop shadow. Duplicate and mirror, place in the top right corner.

Open Holly Berry 1 and resize by 30 percent. Copy and paste as a new layer. Place on top of the branch on the right. Apply a drop shadow. Duplicate and mirror. Place on the bottom left branch.

Open Snowflake 5, duplicate. Resize one by 50 percent and the other by 40 percent. Copy and paste as a new layer placing to your liking. Apply a drop shadow to all layers. Duplicate both as many times as you like.


Open Snowflake 8 and resize by 50 percent. Copy and paste as a new layer. Do the same for this one as well, placing to your liking.

Open Curled Ribbon 1, go to Image - Free Rotate and rotate 45 degrees right. Copy and paste as a new layer. Place above the white background. Apply a drop shadow.

Duplicate the snowflakes at the top, flip. Reposition both a little closer to the template.

Open a paper of choice and copy and paste as a new layer above the white background. Apply the mask to this layer. Delete the mask layer and merge group.

Using a color from the tag type out “So have yourself a merry little Xmas now…” where we delete the word art in the beginning. Apply a gradient glow or drop shadow.

Add any copyrights and your name.

Crop, resize if desired. Save as a PNG.

I hope you have enjoyed using one of my tuts, I would love to see what you have created.
