Cute as a Button




In this tutorial I used the art of FourXsDesigns.
This is a free tube but you do need a license to use it,
you can get one here.
You will find the tube in the "Free Tubes" category.

I used a really cute kit called “Sugar” by
The kit is available here.
Thank you Schnegge!

You will also need a mask, I used Gem’s mask 180, here.

Font is Boopee.
This is a free font, here.


 
Always sharpen your elements after resizing/rotating as otherwise they will be a little blurry.  Check out my Tips and Tricks page for more info.

I used a drop shadow throughout of vertical and horizontal 2, opacity 70, blur 5.



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

Open one of the papers and copy, I used p07_Sugar_Schnegge.  Make a new layer on your canvas, select all,  paste the paper into the selection, deselect and apply the mask.  Resize 90%.

Open frame01_Sugar_Schnegge and paste as a new layer.  Resize 80%.  Select the interior of the frame with your magic wand and expand the selection by 10.

Open another of the papers and copy, this time I used p01_Sugar_Schnegge.  Make a new layer below the frame and paste the paper into the selection, de-select.  Apply the drop shadow to the frame.

Open your tube and paste as a new layer.  Resize as needed, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Open flower-01_Sugar_Schnegge and paste as a new layer.  Resize 60% and rotate 45 degrees to the right.  Place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Open doodle_Sugar_Schnegge and paste as a new layer.  Resize 55%, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Open cup_Sugar_Schnegge and paste as a new layer.  Resize 50%, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Open cupcake01_Sugar_Schnegge and paste as a new layer.  Mirror, resize 35%, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Open scatter02_Sugar_Schnegge and paste as a new layer.  Resize 35%, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Open dog_Sugar_Schnegge and paste as a new layer.  Resize 75%, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Open dove_Sugar_Schnegge and paste as a new layer.  Resize 50%, paste in position and apply the drop shadow.

Open glitter02_Sugar_Schnegge and paste as a new layer.  Resize 90%, drag right down so its just above the mask layer.  Duplicate and mirror and flip the duplicate.  Place both layers into position and apply the drop shadow to each.

Open scatter01_Sugar_Schnegge and paste as a new layer.  Resize 75% and rotate 10 degrees to the right, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Open flower05_Sugar_Schnegge and paste as a new layer.  Mirror,  resize 75%, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Check the positions of your layers and make any necessary adjustments.  When you are happy, crop your tag and add your copyright information and text, then export as a jpeg with compression set to 5 or on a transparent background as png.

I hope you enjoyed this tutorial.  If you have any questions, you can email me here and don’t forget to send me your result so I can include it in the gallery!
