In this tutorial I used the tube “Bound to Please” from
the latest pack 65 by
Barbara Jensen.
You can purchase the tube at

The kit is “All About Christmas” from
This is the second tutorial I have written with this
gorgeous kit, which can also be purchased at

You will also need a mask, I used mask 1 from

Font is 




I used a drop shadow of vertical 0, horizontal  5, opacity 75, blur 10.


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

Make a new layer, select all, paste paper 7 into the selection, deselect and apply the mask.   Mirror the mask layer, resize it 90% and then rotate it 10 degrees to the left.

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

Paste element 16, resize 80% and rotate 20 degrees to the left, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Paste element 12, resize 65%, duplicate it and close off the top copy for now, we will come back to it later. Mirror the original copy, position on the left and apply the drop shadow.

Paste element 15, resize 45%, rotate 10 degrees to the right and place in position.

Paste element 18, resize 40%, rotate 10 degrees to the left and place in position.

Paste your main tube,  duplicate it and close of the copy, resize the original 75%, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Go back to element 15, select the interior with your magic wand, expand the selection by 10, make a new layer below it and fill with a dark brown, I used #1d140c.  Open the closed tube duplicate, duplicate it again and hide this duplicate.  Mirror the open copy and position it in the element, invert the selection and hit delete to remove the excess, deselect.  Change the blend mode on the tube to “Hard Light” and apply the drop shadow to the frame. 

No go back to element 18 and repeat this, filling both parts of the frame with the colour and a copy of the tube but don’t mirror the tube you put in the left hand part of the frame. #

Open that copy of the holly that you hid, drag it up to just below the main tube, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Paste element 28, resize 45%, position on the right of the tube, duplicate, position the duplicate behind/left of the tube, duplicate again, mirror this copy and move it over further to the left, apply the drop shadow to each.

Paste element 4, resize 70%, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Paste element 30, resize 30% and duplicate, mirror one copy and position on the left, drag the duplicate to the top and position on the right, apply the drop shadow to each.

Paste element 7, resize 35%, place in position immediately above the main tube and apply the drop shadow.

Paste element 1, resize 35%, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Paste element 20, resize 25%, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Paste element 29, resize 45%, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Paste element 13, resize 50% and rotate 90 degrees to the left, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Paste element 27 and bring to the top, resize 45%, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Paste element 22, resize 17%, tuck behind the pine cones and apply the drop shadow.

Paste element 23, resize 20%, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

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