Drop shadow use throughout H-2/V-2/O-50/B-6.72

Let me just say that scrappers are making awesome templates and most of them don't need any extras to make your tag look good,but so that my creations won't look like every one else... I change the color and added a few extra elements from the kit and moved a thing or two.

     LET'S BEGIN

Open up Template and ShiftD and close original...delete copyright layer
close all layers except the background layer...the one we'll be working on

Add paper of choice from the kit/copy/paste and
Go to layers/Load/save mask/load mask from disk/ and find your mask of choice...with these setting

create mask from source luminance..../orientation: fit to layer.../Options: Hide all masks/load
Layers/merge/merge group...I resize the mask so that it showed only in the window
now go to the snow layer and duplicate and merge down so that the snow will show better

On the main fill layer I chose a color from the kit and load in color pallet box-then I used the
target brush and color the entire main frame....you can leave it like it is or you can now
choose a paper of choice and fill in the rectangle boxes like I did.-merge this layer down on top
of main fill layer/the main outline layer I left as is.

On the Blind fill layer I also change the color by going to adjust/hue saturation/colorize
hue-255/saturation-177/click ok...on the rect outline I added a paper to the border/merge down.

For the tree layer and tree frame I removed them and replaced it with the tree from the kit
resize and give a drop shadow...Now add any other elements you want, giving them a drop shadow.

For the text layer go to adjust/colorize and give it the same color as the blind fill layer...
now hide that layer, we will open it later

what I did for the X-mas spray layer was used the Christmas balls in the kit, but I resized them
first...after applying them merge down the layers so that they are all on one layer/sharpen and give
a down shadow them merge down on top of X-Christmas spray layer.

Now Copy/paste your tube of choice/resize and give a drop shadow...now reopen your text layer and
place it where you can see it.

Resize the whole tag before you add copyright and watermark and your done!!!!

Thank you for using my tutorial
and don't forget to let me see what you done so I can showcase it

place your tube between the red circle back and the 1 layer...duplicate the tube layer
and x out the copied layer...eraser the over hang of the tube on the bottom and top.
activate the copy layer and just eraser the bottom part and leave the top part hanging on top
of frame.the copy layer should be between the black line layer and th dot layer.

go to the back circle layer and activate with the magic ward...take your tube and place the part
that you want showing in the middle circle...invert on the circle layer and delete on the part you
want showing...do the same thing with the green circle layer.put a drop shadow on all your tube parts.

resize entire tag if needed...add copy right information and your water mark

Give a friend a gift by adding their name...for the name I made it like the funky word art
