Cherished





In this tutorial I used the fabulous tube “Come Hither”
from the new pack 52 by
Barbara Jensen.
You can purchase the tube at

The kit is “Moonlight Shadow” by
I loved this kit, the colours are just awesome!

You will also need a mask, I used mask 230 by

Font of choice.



Please check out my “About my tutorials” page if this is the first tutorial of mine you have followed.

Unless otherwise stated, I used a drop shadow of vertical and horizontal 5, opacity 80, blur 10.


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

Copy pp2, make a new layer on your canvas, select all, paste the paper into the selection, deselect and apply the mask.  

Paste element 7 as a new layer.  Resize 80%.  Select the interior with your magic wand, expand the selection by 15 and make a new layer below it, copy pp2 again and paste it into the selection, deselect.  Apply a drop shadow to the frame of vertical and horizontal 0, opacity 80 and blur 15, repeat the drop shadow then merge the element down onto the paper.

Paste your tube as a new layer, place in position and apply the drop shadow (remember to change the settings).  If you are using one of Barbara’s layered tubes, duplicate it and close the original, pick your layers and copy merged.  I resized my tube 70%.

Paste element 16 as a new layer.   Resize 75%, drag down below the tube and position on the right.  I mirrored it but just because I liked the pattern more on that side.  Select the interior, expand the selection and make a new layer as before and again paste pp2 into the selection but this time do not deselect.    Paste your tube again, resize as needed and position in the element, invert the selection and hit delete to remove the excess, deselect.  I use the same tube without resizing.  Change the blend mode on the tube to “Overlay” and apply the drop shadow you applied to element 7 repeated again. Close off all your elements apart from this frame, tube and paper and merge visible, re-open your closed elements, duplicate the merged layer, mirror it and position on the left.

Paste element 3 as a new layer.   Resize 28% and position on the right, duplicate, mirror the duplicate and position on the left.

Paste element 17 as a new layer.   Resize 55% and rotate 40 degrees to the right, position on the right and apply the drop shadow, duplicate, mirror the duplicate and position on the left. 

Paste element 29 as a new layer.   Resize 45% and duplicate, place both flowers into position and apply the drops shadow to each.

Paste element 19 as a new layer.   Resize 70%, place in position and apply the drop shadow you applied to element 7 and repeat it again.

Paste element 13 as a new layer.   Resize 55% and apply the drop shadow (change the settings back).

Paste element 26 as a new layer.   Resize 55%, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Paste element 11 as a new layer.   Resize 60%, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Paste element 15 as a new layer.   Resize 60%, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Paste element 8 as a new layer.   Resize 45%, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Check the positions of your layers and make any necessary adjustments then crop your tag, add your copyright information and text and export on a transparent background as a png.
