Pretty in Pink






In this tutorial I used the beautiful layered tube “Surprise Party”
from the latest pack 71 from
Barbara Jensen.
You can purchase Barbara’s tubes from

The kit is “Pretty in Pink” from
This is a really pretty kit that can also be purchased at

I used mask 23 from

Font is



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


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

Make a new layer, select all, paste paper 2 into the selection, deselect and apply the mask.

Paste element 14, resize 60% and rotate 10 degrees to the left, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Paste element 8, resize 80%, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Paste element 2, resize 60% and rotate 10 degrees to the right.  Select the interior of the top section with your magic wand, expand the selection by 10, make an new layer below the element and paste paper 6 into it.  Apply the drop shadow to the frame and merge it down onto the paper.

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

Paste element 5, resize 80%, drag down to just above the mask and duplicate, place in position and apply the drop shadow to each.

Paste element 27 just below the tube, resize 80% and apply a drop shadow but changing the horizontal to 2 and blur to 5.

Paste element 22, resize 85%, place in position and apply the drop shadow (remember to change the settings back).

Paste element 21, resize 50%, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Paste element 15, resize 60%, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Paste element 17, resize 50% and mirror, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Paste element 13, resize 70% and place in position.  Paste your tube again, mirror it and resize it 80%.  Click on the element to activate it and then click with your magic wand anywhere on your canvas out side it, expand the selection by 5, position the tube in the element and hit delete to remove the excess, deselect.  Apply the drop shadow to the tube and the element.

Paste element 28 on the top, resize 50% and rotate 70 degrees to the right, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Paste element 24, resize 40% and use your Pick tool (Deform tool in older versions) to make it a bit narrow, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Check 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.
