Vintage Love





In this tutorial I used the beautiful art of
Maxine Gadd
You need a license to use Maxine’s art, available at

I used a kit inspired by this tube (11-2) from
This is a fabulous kit with some beautiful elements and
can also be purchased at

You will also need a mask, I used mask 565 by

Font of choice. 



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

I used a drop shadow of vertical and horizontal 5, opacity 85, blur 10.


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

Copy Paper06, make a new layer on your canvas, select all, paste the paper into the selection, deselect and apply the mask.  Resize 90%.

Paste Element06 as a new layer, resize 75%, move up and to the right and apply the drop shadow.

Paste Frame01 as a new layer, resize 70%, rotate 10 degrees to the left and place in position.  Select the interior of the frame with your magic wand, expand the selection by 10 and make a new layer below it, copy Paper06 again and paste it into the selection, deselect.  Paste your tube as a new layer and position in the frame resizing as needed, apply the drop shadow.  I resized my tube 70%.   With your rectangle selection tube, draw a selection around the top part of the tube that you want above the frame, hit delete and then deselect.  Right click on your canvas and “Paste as a new layer”, this will paste the part you deleted as a new layer, drag it above the frame and join the two pieces up.

Paste Paper04 as a new layer, resize 25% and rotate 20 degrees to the right, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Paste Element09 as a new layer, resize 70% and rotate 10 degrees to the right, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Paste Element07 as a new layer, resize 75%, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Paste Element08 as a new layer, resize 45%, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Paste Element04 as a new layer, resize 30% and rotate 20 degrees to the right, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Paste Element10 as a new layer, resize 50%, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Paste Element15 as a new layer, resize 20%, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Paste Element 12 as a new layer, resize 75%, place in position and apply the drop shadow.  Go back to that top part of the tube that you deleted and pasted again above the frame and bring it to the top so its above element 12. 

Paste Element03 as a new layer, resize 55%, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Paste Element14 as a new layer, resize 505, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Paste Element02 as a new layer, resize 35%, duplicate and mirror the duplicate, place both birds into position and apply the drop shadow to each.

Paste the Wordart as a new layer, resize 50%, place in position,  apply the drop shadow and change the blend mode to “Hard Light”.

Paste Element11 as a new layer, resize 30%, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

 Check your layers and make any necessary adjustments, when you are done, crop your tag, add your copyright information and text, then export on a transparent background as a png.
