Please Tutorial



**As with a lot of my tutorials, I use free scrap kits from a lot of different scrap kit makers.
I do include the link to the site/page those scrap kits can be obtained from, but sometimes
those scrap kits become no longer available or the site closes. When this happens, I do endeavor
to add a new link, but if I don't, please use another scrap kit of your choice that is almost
the same as the one that I used in my tutorials. Sorry for any inconvenience this may cause.**

You will need:

Tube - I used one from BAMA Creations-Bobbie Allen
HERE
Scrap kit called 'Love Bug' from BlueDreamsDesigns
HERE
Font I used is call ST Ember - you can get it
HERE
Plugin Filter:
EyeCandy 4000-Gradient Glow


New white canvas 800x700



Copy & paste one of the Round Frames from scrap kit as a new layer. Resize 80% Bicubic-all layers
unchecked.
Magic Wand, click inside the frame, remember to click under the bow as well. Selections-Modify-Expand 6
Copy & paste a Paper from scrap kit as a new layer - Selections-Invert, hit delete. Keep selected.
Move Paper layer below Frame layer.
Have top layer (frame) active. Copy & paste your tube as a new layer - Eraser Tool, erase any of your tube
behind the ribbon bow like this



Selections-None.
Give your tube & the frame this drop shadow



Cross out eyes on bottom layer (white) MERGE VISIBLE all other layers. Open eyes up. Resize your merged image 80%
Bicubic-all layers unchecked. Move across to the left of your canvas.
Copy & paste Love Bug-Post Card element from scrap kit as a new layer. I resized the Post Card 120%
Bicubic-all layers unchecked so it looks better, that choice is yours. Image-Free Rotate-Rotate 25 left.
Duplicate the Post Card - Free Roate-Rotate 50 right. Give each Post Card drop shadow as before. Move the
Post Cards until they look similar to mine

Copy & paste one of the Envelope elements from scrap kit as a new layer. Resize 80% Bicubic-all layers unchecked.
Move the Envelope over a little so it sits behind your merged image - give drop shadow.

Copy & paste one of the Clip elements from scrap kit as a new layer. Resize 80% Bicubic-all layers unchecked.
Give droip shadow. Move the Clip over so it looks like it has clipped the Envelope & Post Cards

Copy & paste one of the Bow elements from scrap kit as a new layer. You can resize the Bow if you like. Give
drop shadow. Move the Bow over so it hides the hole in the Clip.

Have your top layer active - copy & paste one of the Feather elements as a new layer. Resize 80% Bicubic-
all layers unchecked - Adjust-Sharpen.

At this stage, we will merge all the layers. Cross out the eyes on bottom layer (white) MERGE VISIBLE all other layers.

Okay, now we add our little message on the Post Card. Add whater ever message you like. I use font size 36 & then dragged it
out a little - Image-Free Rotate-Rotate 26 left - convert to Raster Layer.

Select a light colour from your tube as your foreground colour - Effects-PLugins-EyeCandy 4000-GradientGlow with these settings






Give drop shadow,
Add your name & correct copyright. Crop Tool - crop excess white background. Cross out eyes on bottom layer (white)
Copy & Paste as a New Image on your workspace. Resize 70% Bicubic-all layers CHECKED. Save as a *Png.
