In this tutorial I used the art of Barbara Jensen.
You need a license to use Barbara’s art,
I purchased mine from Scraps N Crap but
they are now available direct from Barbara, here.

I used an awesome kit called "Golden Green" by
This is an exclusive kit available here.
Thank you so much Carita, gorgeous kit!

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

Font of choice.




Your elements will need to be sharpened after resizing/rotating, for more info, check out my Tips and Tricks page.


Open a new transparent canvas 650 by 550 and flood fill with white.

Open one of the papers and copy, I used pp5.  Make a new layer on your canvas, select all, paste the paper into the selection, deselect and apply the mask. Resize 85%.

Open el16 and paste as a new layer.  Resize 90%, move over to the right and apply a drop shadow, vertical and horizontal 1, opacity 70, blur 3.

Open el10 and paste as a new layer, move over to the left and apply the last drop shadow.

Open el23 and paste as a new layer.  Resize 60% and rotate 10 degrees to the right.

Open another of the papers and copy, this time I used pp5.  Select the interior of the frame with your magic wand, expand the selection by 20, make a new layer below the frame layer and paste the paper into the selection, deselect.  We will come back to this frame later.

Open el28 and paste as a new layer. Resize 90% and apply a drop shadow, vertical and horizontal 2, opacity 70, blur 5.

Open el31 and paste as a new layer.  Resize 80%, mirror, rotate 30 degrees to the right, place in position and apply the first drop shadow, vertical and horizontal 1, opacity 70, blur 3.

Open el4 and paste as new layer.  Resize 80% and apply the drop shadow vertical and horizontal 2, opacity 70, blur 5.

Open el11 and paste as a new layer.  Resize 80% and place in position on the right, duplicate, mirror the duplicate, drag it down below the original element and place in position on the left, apply the last drop shadow to both layers.

Open your tube and paste as a new layer, resize as needed, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Open el15 and paste as a new layer.  Place in position and apply the last drop shadow.  Erase some of the parts so it looks like the ribbon is wrapped around the tube.

Open el12 and paste as a new layer.  Resize 35% and rotate 15 degrees to the right.  Duplicate, mirror the duplicate, place both elements in position and apply the last drop shadow to each.

Open el27 and paste as a new layer.  Drag down so its just above the mask layer and position on the top, left hand side.  Duplicate and move the duplicate down so a bit is showing at the bottom on the right hand side.  Apply the last drop shadow to each layer.

Check the positions of your layers and make any final adjustments.

Duplicate your tube, mirror it and drag it down so its just below the frame layer.  Activate the frame and select the interior with your magic wand, expand the selection by 10, activate the tube, invert the selection and hit delete to remove the excess then lower the opacity to around 30. 

Open el6, paste as a new layer and drag up above the frame.  Mirror, resize 40%, place in position on the corner of the frame and apply the last drop shadow.

Crop your tag and add your copyright information and text then export as a jpeg with compression set to 5 or on a transparent background as a png.
