Winter Magic




In this tutorial I am using the beautiful art of Olivia De Berardinis.
You require a license to use Olivia’s art,
I purchased mine from CILM
but they are now available here.

I using an awesome free to use scrap kit called “Winter Magic”
by Mago74.
This is such a beautiful scrap kit, thank you so much Mago!
You can get the kit here.
Be sure to check out her other freebies!

You will also need a mask, I used monti’s circle mask here.

Font used is Chocolate Box Decorative,
a free font, here.


 
Don’t forget to sharpen your elements after resizing/rotating to take away any blurriness caused (adjust – sharpness – unsharp mask, radius and clipping 5, strength 30).

I used a soft drop shadow throughout of vertical and horizontal 5, opacity 40, blur 10.


Open a new transparent canvas 650 by 600 pixels and flood fill with white.

Open one of the papers and copy, I used WINTER MAGIC by_Mago74 pp (3).  Make a new layer on your canvas, select all, paste the paper into the selection, de-select and apply your mask.  Resize 80%.

Open WINTER MAGIC by_Mago74 ramka (5) and paste as a new layer. Resize 25%, move over slightly to the right and apply the drop shadow.

Open WINTER MAGIC by_Mago74 el (24) and paste as a new layer. Resize 15%, place in position on the left of the frame and apply the drop shadow.
