United States of America





In this tutorial I used the aptly named bonus tube “Plum Gorgeous” from
This awesome multi layered tube is
free with a tube purchase of just $9 from
running until Friday, 1st July.

The kit is “USA”from
and is also available at

I used mask 10 from

Font is



I used a drop shadow of vertical 0, horizontal 5, opacity 85, blur 10.


Open a new transparent canvas 700 by 700 pixels and fill with white.

Make a new layer, select all, paste paper 10 into the selection, deselect, apply the mask and resize it 95%.

Paste element 4 and resize 80%.

Paste element 22, resize 95%, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Paste element 45, resize 55%, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Paste the main tube, resize 65%, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Paste element 9, resize 60%, drag below the tube, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Paste element 25, resize 45%, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Paste element 7, resize 30%, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Paste element 48, resize 30%, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

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

Paste element 19 on the top, resize 50%, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Paste element 51, resize 50%, drag below element 19, duplicate, place in position and apply the drop shadow to each.

Check your layers and make any adjustments.

Paste the tube again, drag it down above the map, select the map, float and defloat it, change the blend mode on the tube to “Hard Light” and place it in position, invert the selection and hit delete.  Repeat this with the tube mirrored on the other side of the map.

Paste element 30 and move into position.

When you are done, crop your tag, add your copyright information and text and export on a transaprent background as a png.
