Well, its not much like Spring today but decided to give this kit a try away, maybe I can “think” Spring instead! Okay, onto the tutorial…

Open the template, duplicate and close the original. Delete the copyright layer. Resize canvas by 700 x 700. Flood fill the bg layer with white.

Select one of the circles, go to Selections - Float - Defloat.

Copy and paste a paper of choice as a new layer above the selected layer. Place to your liking, go to Selections - invert and hit delete on the keyboard. Delete the template layer and apply a drop shadow.

Repeat the above steps for the remaining template layers.

I applied Penta.com - Dots and Crosses using the default settings in the smaller two circles. This is optional. You can leave as they are or use a filter of your choice.

Add a new layer above the white background layer. Using two colors from the template or tube make a gradient of your liking. Flood fill this layer with the gradient. Apply the mask to this layer. Delete the mask layer and merge group. Resize if needed.

Open Flower Scatter 2, copy and paste as a new layer above the large circles. Apply a drop shadow. Duplicate and place on the opposite side.

Open Flower Scatter, copy and paste as a new layer. Place near the bottom of the tag. Apply a drop shadow. Duplicate and flip.

Open Shutters, resize by 80 percent. Copy and paste as a new layer. Line up the left hand side of the shutters with the left hand side of the rectangle in the center of the template. Apply a drop shadow. Using the Selection tool set on Rectangle select the right side of the shutters, line up on the right hand side. Select none.

Open Paper Flower 2, resize by 30 percent, go to Image - Rotate Left. Copy and paste as a new layer. Place near the top of the shutter on the left hand side. Apply a drop shadow. Duplicate and flip. Place on the right shutter about in the center.

Open Heart Flowers, copy and paste as a new layer. Place on the right hand side overlapping the shutter with the heart. Apply a drop shadow. Duplicate and mirror. Place on the left hand side on top of the large circle.

Open Butterfly, resize by 30 percent. Copy and paste as a new layer. Place to your liking, apply a drop shadow. Duplicate as many times as you like.

Copy and paste the tube as a new layer. Place in the center of the tag, apply a drop shadow.

Open Hat, resize by 50 percent. Copy and paste as a new layer. Place in front of the tube, apply a drop shadow.

Open Bird, resize by 30 percent. Copy and paste as a new layer. Place on the left hand side at the top of the large circle. Apply a drop shadow. Duplicate and mirror, place at the bottom of the template.

Open Sparkle, copy and paste as a new layer. I placed mine on top of the tube.

I added the word art Welcome lovely SPRING. This is up to you, you can always add something else or leave it how it is. I then placed the bird so it looks like its standing on the word art.

Add any copyrights and your name.

Crop, resize if needed. Save as a PNG (close background layer first).

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