**CT PTU TUTORIAL - Santa Knows...**

*This tutorial is written by me using Photoshop CS6 but any version will work.
Any similarity to any other tut is coincidental.*

Tube of choice. I'm using the artwork of Verymany.
You must purchase a license to be able to use her work.
You may do that at VMT store.
Kit of choice. I'm using PTU kit 'Candy Cane'
by Tiny Turtle Designs. You can find it HERE.
Template of choice. Santa Knows
Mask of choice. 
Font of choice. Play Ground

Let's get started...
Open template. Hide or delete layers 'info', 'top white circle' and
'top purple circle'. Select all layers from the 'wordart' to 'white stripe'
and move them a little down. Now click on the layer 'white large circle'.
From the kit past Paper #15 and Create Clipping Mask. For the layer
'mauve large circle' create mask with Paper #12. Then for 'dot n dash'
layer use Paper #27 and Create Clipping Mask. Now select all of the
rectangle layers and delete them. Then from the kit past Element #119,
Rotate a little to the right and place it at the top right side.
Add Drop Shadow, Opacity 40%. Make a copy of it, Flip Horizontal and
place in the middle, little more to the left side. On the right tree
place Element #170. And on the left one add Element #147 with shadow
on both. On it place Element #182 so the bottom of element is right
under the stripe where's wordart, with shadow on 40%. Make a copy of
it, Flip Horizontal and place next to it. Then on the right side place
Element #119 again, with shadow. On it past Element #207, shadow. Under
this element just place paper or element on the window, to cover the
empty space. I used Paper #17. Next to the house, right side, add
Element #184, shadow. On it place Element #190 and then Element #171
on it, shadow on both 40%. Then on the hose left side place, again,
Element #119, shadow. On the snowman place Element #174, shadow.
Next to it, left, add Element #148 with shadow on 40%. Now add
Element #142 at the bottom left side, no shadow. On it place
Element #165 with shadow. Make a copy of it and place on the santa.
Past full size tube, Flip Horizontal and place. Use filter or
effect of choice and add shadow on 60%. Click on the 'white strip'
layer and past Paper #24. Create Clipping Mask from it. For the
'purple strip' layer create mask using Paper #12. Then for the
layer 'bottom purple circle' use Paper #24 to create mask. Click
on the 'bottom white circle' and move it to be inside the white
circle. Place a tube and Create Clipping Mask. Use diferent filter
or effect for this tube. For the layer 'wordart' set Storke on size 1,
color white, Color Overlay with color red and Outer Glow with color
white. Then add Element #105 and place under the WA.

Now let's add mask:
Open your mask as new image.
Mask layer will be called 'Background' and will be locked. 
Double click on same layer, press OK. Layer name will be 'Layer 0'.
Add a new layer above it and flood fill with color of choice,
or use a paper from kit . I use Paper #20.
Click on mask layer and hold CTRL+A to Select All, CTRL+C to Copy.
Click on the paper layer, hit Q to turn on Quick Mask mode. 
CTRL+V to paste the mask. It should now be kinda red.
Hit Q to turn off Quick Mask mode
and there should be shown selection on your canvas. 
Hit the Add Layer Mask.
On paper layer, right click and Convert to Smart Object.
Right click again and Rasterize Layer.
Drag completed mask to your tag canvas as the bottom layer.
Resize it if needed.

Add proper copyright and your name on tag.

Hide or delete bottom 'Background' layer. And save your tag as .PNG file.
That's it! Thank you for reading. I would love to see any tags made with this tutorial.
