Winter Roses





In this tutorial I used the layered tube “Golden Touch”
from the latest pack 62 from
Barbara Jensen.
This gorgeous tube can be purchased from

I used a lovely kit called “Winter Roses” by
The kit can also be purchased at

You will also need a mask, I used mask 220 by

The font is



I used a drop shadow of vertical 0, horizontal 5, opacity 55, blur 10.


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

Make a new layer, select all, paste paper 7 into the selection, deselect and apply the mask, resize 95% and flip.

Paste element 10 as a new layer, resize 60% and position on the left, duplicate, mirror the duplicate and move it over to the right.

Paste element 15 as a new layer and resize 50%.  Select the interior of the element with your magic wand and expand the selection by 10, copy paper 5 and paste it as a new layer below the element, position nicely in the frame, invert the selection and hit delete to remove the excess, deselect.  Apply the drop shadow to the frame, merge it down onto the paper and place in position.

Paste element 7 as a new layer, resize 35% and rotate 20 degrees to the left, now repeat the above steps using paper 4 resized 50%.

Paste element 18 as a new layer, resize 80% and rotate 80 degrees to the right, drag below both merged layers and position on the right, duplicate, move the duplicate to the left and apply the drop shadow to each.

Paste element 14 as a new layer and bring to the top, resize 60%, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Paste the tube as a new layer, resize 70%, place in position and apply the drop shadow.  I did quite a bit of re-colouring on my tube which Barbara allows as long as its done nicely; check out my Tips and Tricks page for help with this.

Paste element 9 as a new layer, resize 35%, drag below the tube, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Paste element 1 as a new layer, resize 45% and rotate 20 degrees to the right, duplicate and mirror the duplicate, position the original copy below the gold frame merged layer on the right and the duplicate above the blue frame merged layer on the left, apply the drop shadow to each.

Paste element 2 as a new layer, resize 50% and position on the right immediately below the tube, apply the drop shadow.

Paste element 5 as a new layer,  resize 40% and position on the left, duplicate, mirror the duplicate and move over to the right, apply the drop shadow to each.

Paste element 29 as a new layer, resize 30% and position on the left, duplicate, mirror the duplicate and position on the right, apply the drop shadow to each.

Paste element 19 as a new layer, resize 50% and position on the left, duplicate, mirror the duplicate and position on the right.

Paste element 13 as a new layer, resize 30% and position on the left, duplicate, mirror the duplicate and position on the right below the star,  apply the drop shadow to each.

Paste element 3 as a new layer, resize 25% and duplicate, mirror the duplicate and drag below the original, place in position and apply the drop shadow to each.

Paste element 30 as a new layer and bring to the top, resize 50%, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Check the positions of your layers and make any necessary adjustments, make sure none of the reindeer is covered by any of the elements, when you are done, crop your tag and add your copyright information.

Set your fill colour to #1e2728 and close off the foreground, type your text, drag it below element 30 and apply the drop shadow.

 When you are all done, export your tag on a transpareng background as a png.
