December Magic





In this tutorial I used a beautiful tube by
You need a license to use Alex’ art, available at

I used a beautiful kit called “December Magic” from
This is such a pretty kit and can be purchased at

I used two masks, winter mask 4 from
and mask 1 also by
Dee.

Font of choice.




I used a drop shadow of vertical 0, horizontal 5, opacity 60, blur 10.


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

Make a new layer, select all, paste paper 3 into the selection and apply mask 1.

Make another layer, paste paper 9 into the selection, deselect and apply mask 4, resize 90%.

Paste element 100 and resize 70%.  Click anywhere on your canvas outside of the element with your magic wand to make a selection and expand the selection by 20.  Paste paper 6 on your canvas below the window, resize the paper 50% and position it so the tree shows through the window then hit delete to remove the excess, deselect.  apply the drop shadow to the frame and merge it down onto the paper. 

Paste your tube, resize as needed, place in position and apply the drop shadow.  I resized my tube 35%.

Paste spray 9, resize 70%, drag below the tube and position along the bottom of the window.

Paste element 28, resize 55%, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Paste element 29, resize 20%, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Paste element 8, resize 30%, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Paste spray 3 and resize 80%.

Paste element 45d, resize 45% and position on the left, duplicate, mirror the duplicate again, position one copy on the right and one in the centre, apply the drop shadow to each.

Paste element 72, resize 50% and duplicate, place in position around the tube and apply the drop shadow to each.

Paste element 50, resize 25%, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Paste element 54, resize 30%, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Paste element 21, resize 25%, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Paste element 11, resize 35%, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Paste  wordart 2 and bring to the top, resize 70%, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Paste element 36c, resize 25%, drag below the word art, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Paste element 10, resize 30%, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Paste item 9, resize 35%, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Paste element 18b and bring to the top, resize 20%, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Check your layers and make any necessary adjustments. I erased a bit around the word art so my tube was leaning on it then crop your tag, add your copyright information and text and export on a transparent background as a png.
