Friends




In this tutorial I used the “Friends Collection” by
Zindy S.D. Nielsen and Creationz by Jo.
This collection comprises a beautiful tube and kit for the 
price of just a regular tube.
You can get it here.

You will also need a mask, I used Gem’s mask 22, here.

Font is 1Snappy DNA, here.





You will need to sharpen up your elements after resizing/rotating as otherwise they will look a little blurry; check out my Tips and Tricks page for more info.

I used a drop shadow throughout of vertical and horizontal 2, opacity 75, blur 5.


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

Open one of the papers and copy, I used CBJFriendsP12.  Make a new layer on your canvas, select all, paste the paper into the selection, deselect and apply the mask.  Resize 90%.

Open CBJFriendsStapleFrame and paste as a new layer.  Resize 95%.

Open another of the papers and copy, this time I used CBJFriendsP4.  Select the interior of the frame with your magic wand and expand the selection by 20, make a new layer below the frame, paste the paper into the selection, deselect and apply the drop shadow to the frame.

Open CBJFriendsLeaves and paste as a new layer.  Mirror, resize 50%, drag down so its just above the mask, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Open CBJFriendsBlossom and paste as a new layer.  Resize 55% and rotate 60 degrees to the right, erase the bottom of the stalk, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Open CBJFriendsFlo1 and paste as a new layer.  Resize 55%, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Open DBJFriendsSpill, paste as a new layer and bring to the top.  Resize 60% and move down very slightly.

Open the tube and paste as a new layer.  Resize 73%, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Open CBJFriendsFoldRibbon and paste as a new layer.  Flip, resize 60%, place in position and apply the drop shadow. 

Open CBJFriendsIvy and paste as a new layer.  Resize 70% and rotate 70 degrees to the right, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Open CBJFriendsFloral and paste as a new layer.  Resize 50%, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Open CBJFriendsSign1 and paste as a new layer.  Resize 35%, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Open CBJFriendsFlo3 and paste as a new layer.  Resize 35%, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Open CBJFriendsPaw and paste as a new layer.  Resize 60% and rotate 20 degrees to the left, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Open CBJFriendsFlutters and paste as a new layer.  Resize 35%, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Check the positions of your layers and make any necessary adjustments.  When you are done, crop your tag and add your copyright information and text, then export as jpeg with compression set to 5 or on a transparent background as a png.

I hope you enjoyed this tutorial, if you have any questions, please email me here.  I would, as always, love to see your result and include it in the gallery!
