My Supplies: Little snowflakes found here
Eye Candy 4000 – Gradient Glow (optional) 

Open the template, duplicate and close the original. Delete the copyright, and bar set. Resize all layers by 90%.

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

Copy and paste a paper of choice above the selected layer. Position to your liking. Go to Selections - Invert and hit delete on the keyboard. Delete the template layer. Apply a drop shadow.

Repeat the above steps for the remaining template layers.

I then applied a Gradient glow using Eye Candy 4000 to the snowflakes, this of course is optional. 

Copy and paste the tube as a new layer, position inside the frame on the left hand side. Resize if needed. Place to your liking. Apply a drop shadow. Erase any of the tube outside of the frame. 

Repeat the last steps for the frame on the right, my tube is bigger in this frame. 

Open the snowflakes I provided, copy and paste a new layer. Place around the template to your liking, I placed some on top of the tubes and below on the bottom layers of the template. See my tag if you would like a reference. 

Duplicate the snowflakes that were on the template, move to the right. Don’t forget to flip a few. You can duplicate as many as you like.

Open Bow3, resize by 30% and mirror. Copy and paste as a new layer. Place at the top where the two frames meet. Apply a drop shadow.

Open Holly, resize by 40%. Copy and paste as a new layer. Place in the bottom left corner of the frame on the left. Apply a drop shadow. 

Open Candycane1, resize by 40%. Copy and paste as a new layer. Place on the right hand side overlapping the frame. Apply a drop shadow. Duplicate and place under the holly.

You may want to move the snowflakes around a little or add a few more over the elements you added.

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.

Supplies Needed:

Scrap kit: The December BlogTrainAd 2010 by Charlie found here

Template: BP_template 89 by Becky’s Creations (could not be found so you can download it from my Box) here

Eye Candy 4000 – Gradient Glow (optional)

 

Open the template, duplicate and close the original. Delete the copyright and TOU.

 

Select Frame Fill, go to Selections - Select All - Float - Defloat.

 

Copy and paste a paper of choice above the selected layer. Position to your liking. Go to Selections - Invert and hit delete on the keyboard. Delete the template layer. Apply a drop shadow.

 

Repeat the above steps for the remaining template layers.

 

I then applied a Gradient glow using Eye Candy 4000 to the dotted frame and snowflakes, this of course is optional.

 

Open the file that has the gold stars, using the Freehand Selection Tool, select and copy the stars. Paste them into the template. Resize to your liking, position them above the background for the rectangle. Apply a drop shadow. Duplicate as many as you like placing them around the background. You can also use different sizes if preferred. 

 

Copy and paste the tube as a new layer, resize if needed. Move this layer just below the frame for the rectangle. Place on the left hand side so the circle is not fully blocking the tube. Apply a drop shadow. Erase any of the tube that is sticking out below the frame.

 

Open the file that has the silver stars, using the Freehand Selection Tool, select and copy the stars. Paste them into the template. Resize to your liking, position them above the background for the circle. Apply a drop shadow. Duplicate as many as you like placing them around the background. You can also use different sizes if preferred. 

 

Copy and paste the tube as a new layer, resize if needed. Move this layer just below the frame for the circle. Position to your liking. Apply a drop shadow. Erase any of the tube that is sticking out below the frame. I used a smaller tube for the circle, it’s totally up to you.

 

Open the file containing the green and red ribbon, using the Freehand Selection Tool, select and copy the green and then the red ribbon. Paste onto the template, resize to your liking. I resized the red a little smaller than the green. Place in the left hand corner of the circle frame overlapping the tag. Move the red one on top of the green. Apply a drop shadow to both ribbons.

 

Open the file with the poinsettia, using the Freehand Selection Tool, select and copy the poinsettia. Paste it into the template. Resize to your liking, position over top the ribbon, on the edge of the circle frame. Apply a drop shadow.

 

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