Santa





In this tutorial I used the art of Keith Garvey.
This gorgeous tube is a free gift from Keith but you need a
license to use it, you can get yours here.
Thank you Keith!

I have again used the gorgeous kit Christmas Fever by
This kit is perfect for this tube and you can get it here.

You will also need a mask, I used Vix Big Mask 018, here.

Font is St. Nicholas, here.





Remember to sharpen up your elements after resizing/rotating as it makes them a little blurry; for more info, check out my Tips and Tricks page.

I used a drop shadow throughout of vertical and horizontal 2, opacity 80, blur 5.



Open a new transparent canvas 650 by 500 pixels and flood fill with white.

Open SkyScraps-pp3 and copy.  Make a new layer on your canvas, select all, paste the paper into the selection, deselect and apply the mask.  Resize 95%.

Open SkyScraps-E54 and paste as a new layer.  Resize 90%, move a little up and to the left and apply the drop shadow.

Open SkyScraps-E4 and paste as a new layer.  Resize 45%, move over to the right and apply the drop shadow.

Open SkyScraps-E3 and paste as a new layer.  Resize 50%, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Open the tube, paste as a new layer, resize 70%, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Open SkyScraps-E52 and paste as a new layer.  Resize 50%, drag down below the tube, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Open SkyScraps-E37 and paste as a new layer.  Resize 60%, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Open SkyScraps-E5 and paste as a new layer.  Resize 35%, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Open SkyScraps-E8 and paste as a new layer.  Resize 50%, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Open SkyScraps-E17 and paste as a new layer.  Resize 80% and place in position.

Open SkyScraps-E48 and paste as a new layer.  Resize 20%, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Open SkyScraps-E47 and paste as a new layer.  Resize 18%, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Open SkyScraps-E36 and paste as a new layer.  Resize 40% and rotate 90 degrees to the right, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Open SkyScraps-E50 and paste as a new layer.  Resize 30%, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Open SkyScraps-E51 and paste as a new layer.  Resize also 30%, 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 a png.
