Supplies Needed:
Tube: I am using one from Danny Lee, you can find this tube here
Scrapkit: Hot Drink by Design by Joan, you can find this kit here
My supplies: Frame template, here (you can always use another one
Eye Candy 5 – Impact – Bevel

I purchased both the tube and kit a long time ago, then my computer went nuts and I lost both. I finally got them back and thought I better do something with them NOW! The kit and tube both are named “Hot Drink” in case you can’t find it.

Open a new image 700 x 700. Add a new layer and flood fill with white, copy and paste the frame template as a new layer. Go to Selections – Select All – Float – Defloat. Copy and paste a paper of choice above the frame. Hit delete on the key board. Apply a drop shadow.

(you can apply a bevel to the frame if you like) I used these setting for mine:
Eye Candy 5 Impact Bevel
Bevel Width: 39
Bevel Height: 20
Smoothness: 78
Bevel Placement: Inside Selection
Shade Interior: Checked
Bevel Profile: Button

Copy and paste a paper of choice below the frame, select the frame layer, using the Magic Wand click on the outside of the frame. Go to Selections – Modify – Expand by 5. Select the paper again and hit delete on the keyboard.

Open the tube, copy and paste as a new layer. Resize if needed and place to your liking. Apply a drop shadow.

Open Elem 3, resize by 85%. Copy and paste as a new layer. Place behind the frame background. Apply a drop shadow if desired.

Open Elem 51, resize by 20%. Copy and paste as a new layer. Place at the top, in the center of the frame. Apply a drop shadow.

Open Elem 47, resize by 40%. Copy and paste as a new layer. Place below the frame background, position so the some of the branches are seen out past the frame on the left-hand side. Apply a drop shadow. Duplicate as many as you like placing along the edge.

Open Elem 56, resize by 50%. Copy and paste as a new layer. Position on the left-hand side on top of the frame. See my tag for reference if needed. Apply a drop shadow.

Open Elem 65, resize by 20%, mirror. Copy and paste as a new layer. Place near one of the top limbs of the branch you just added. Apply a drop shadow.

Open Elem 35, resize by 60%. Copy and paste as a new layer. Position on top of the branch. Apply a drop shadow. Duplicate if desired and place around the branch and frame.

Open Elem 45, resize by 30%. Copy and paste as a new layer. Place on the left-hand side covering the bottom of the branch. Apply a drop shadow.

Open Elem 20, resize by 20%. Copy and paste as a new layer. Place at the top of the tree you just added. Apply a drop shadow.

Open Elem 7, resize by 25%. Copy and paste as a new layer. Place in front of the tree. Apply a drop shadow.

Open Elem 55, I resize one by 20% and another by 15%. Copy and paste the larger one as a new layer. Place in front of the pile of snowballs. Apply a drop shadow. Copy and paste the smaller one as a new layer. Leave it for now we will return to it in a bit.

Open Elem 23, resize by 60%. Copy and paste as a new layer. Place beside the tree, position a little off to the right and down a little lower. Apply a drop shadow. Move the smaller gift to the right of the lantern. Apply a drop shadow to the gift if you already haven’t.

Open Elem 27, resize by 25%. Copy and paste as a new layer. Place between the pile of snowballs and lantern. Apply a drop shadow.

Open Elem 4, resize by 15%. Copy and paste as a new layer. Place in front of the lantern and drink. Apply a drop shadow.

Open Elem 25, resize by 60%. Copy and paste as a new layer. Place near the small gift and candy. Apply a drop shadow.

Open Elem 66, resize by 15%. Copy and paste as a new layer. Place off to the right-hand side a little. See my tag for reference if needed. Apply a drop shadow.

Open Elem 53, resize by 50%. Copy and paste as a new layer. Place around the outside of the frame. Move this layer below the frame background. Duplicate as many times as you need.

Close off these layers: frame, frame background, purple d├ęcor, white background, pine wreath, the tube, the bow and bells, both birds, the lantern and small gift. Right click at the top of the tag, copy merged. Paste as a new layer, mirror. Position on the right-hand side on top of the frame. Place this a little higher than the left side. See my tag for reference if needed.

Open all layers you have closed. Reposition the merged layer on the right-hand side if needed. Also, you may need to move the little bird at the bottom to your liking again.

Add any copyrights and your name. Crop, resize if desired. Save as a PNG (close background first).

Thank you for trying one of my tuts, I hope you have enjoyed yourself and I look forward to having you back here again!! I would love to see what you have created.
