Supplies Needed:
Tube of choice (two different sizes), I am using the talented Keith Garvey, you can find him at PTE
Scrap kit Lucky in Love by Creative Scraps by Crys
Template STPAT #10 by Mincrisar found at Creative Misfits
Xero - Radiance (optional)
Mask of choice

Open the template, duplicate and close the original. Delete the copyright, clover and word art.

Select the rectangle layer, go to Selections - Select All - Float - Defloat.

Copy and paste a paper of choice above the selected layer, I resized the papers by 80 percent. Once happy with the position go to Selections - Invert and hit delete on the keyboard. Apply a drop shadow and delete the template layer.

Repeat the above steps of the remaining template layers.

Copy and paste the close-up or biggest tube as a new layer above the rectangle background. Apply a drop shadow. Position inside the rectangle.

Select the rectangle background, go to Selections - Select All - Float - Defloat.

Select the close-up tube once more, go to Invert and hit delete on your keyboard. I applied the following effects to the close-up:
Effects - Texture Effects - Blinds:
Width - 2
Opacity - 30
Color - White
Horizontal & Light From Left/Top - Checked

Effects - Plugins - Xero - Radiance:
Strangeness - 128
Charm - 50
Truth - 128
Beauty - 255

And I changed the Blend Mode to Multiply.

Copy and paste the smaller tube as a new layer above the square background. Apply a drop shadow. Place inside the square.

Select the Square background, go to Selections - Select All - Float - Defloat.

Select the tube again, go to Selections - Invert and hit delete on the keyboard. I changed the Blend Mode to Soft Light.

Alrighty, now onto the elements!

Open 4 Leaf Clover, resize by 40 percent, copy and paste as a new layer. Place in the upper left hand corner of the square. Apply a drop shadow. Duplicate and place in the lower left hand corner of the rectangle.

Open Bow 2, resize by 25 percent. Copy and paste as a new layer. Place in the center of the clover on the left hand side. Apply a drop shadow. Duplicate and place in the center of the clover on the right.

Open Ribbon 3, resize by 25 percent, copy and paste as a new layer. Place under the bow on the left hand side, apply a drop shadow.

Open Beads, resize by 50 percent, mirror. Copy and paste as a new layer. Place near the bottom of the square. Apply a drop shadow. Duplicate and place on the left hand side of the rectangle. I then selected a few beads and placed them here and there using the Freehand tool.

Copy and paste the tube as a new layer. Position in the center of the template. Resize if needed. I resized the one I used by 90 percent. Apply a drop shadow.

Open Rainbow, resize by 80 percent. Copy and paste as a new layer, move this layer below the frames. Place at the top of the tag. Apply a drop shadow.

Open Clovers, copy and paste as a new layer below the rainbow. Position to your liking, apply a drop shadow. Duplicate and mirror.

Add a new layer above the white background, choose two colors from the tag and make a gradient. Flood fill the layer with the gradient. Apply the mask to this layer. Delete the mask layer and merge group.

Finally I added Happy Saint Patrick’s Day at the bottom of my tag.

Add any copyrights and your name.

Crop, resize if desired. Save as a PNG (close white background first).

Thank you for trying one of my tuts, I hope you have enjoyed using it enough to come back for more! I would love to see what you have created.
