**CT PTU TUTORIAL - Here Comes Santa**

*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 'Santa's List'
by Dees'Sign Depot. You can find it HERE.
Template of choice. Santa Claus
Mask of choice.
Font of choice. Vladimir Script

Let's get started...
Open template. Hide or delete 'info' and 'font info' layers.
Now click on the last layer 'dark green oval'. From the kit past
Element #13 on it with Drop Shadow, Opacity 40%. Click on the layer
'red large square' and past Paper #1. Right click on the paper and
Create Clipping Mask. Select 'green large square' and on it place
Paper #2, CC mask. Then click on the layer 'dotted square'. From the
kit past Element #19b, resize it to be smaller and Rotate 90 CW. Place
it on the left side with shadow on 30%. Make a copy of it and place on
the right side. On the left side, behind the big white circle, past
Element #22, rotate and shadow on 40%. Above it place Element #18,
rotate a little and shadow. Make a copy of it, Flip Horizontal and
place next to it, but leave a little empty space. Where's that empty
space add Element #15 with shadow. Now behind the smaller red circle
place 'Spray_2' no shadow. Click on the 'white circle' layer and
from the kit past Paper #3. Create Clipping Mask and move paper up
so the trees are not in the circle. Place close up tube in there, Flip
Horizontal and set Bend Mode to 'Overlay'. Also add some transparent
patter on the tube and set pattern Blend Mode to 'Soft Light'. Then
click on the layer 'red circle' and Create Clipping Mask using
Paper #1. Delete or hide layer 'dark green circle'. Click on the
'santa' layer. From the kit past Element #17, Flip Horizontal and
place at the left side, where the red circle is. Drop Shadow,
Opacity 40%. Next to it add Element #22b with shadow. On the right
side, where's 'santa' layer, place Element #17b, shadow. On those
elements add Element #19 with shadow on 30%. Then click on the layer
'center light green shape' and from the kit past Paper #4 and CC mask.
For the layer 'center red squares' use Paper #1 for CC mask. On the
right square past close up tube, resize to be smaller and Create
Clipping Mask. Use filter or effect of choice on the tube. Click on
the 'center green frames' layer. Past Element #10 and place it at the
middle frame top left corner, shadow. Make a copy of it, rotate a
little and place at the right frame top corner. On it place Element #18
with shadow. Then place Element #16 on there with shadow on 40%. At the
frame bottom right corner past Element #15, rotate and shadow. Make
a copy of it, rotate and place at the left bottom frame corner.
To cover the bottom, where's snow element, place Element #19 with
shadow on 30%. On it, at the left past Element #18, shadow 40%. Make
a copy of it, Flip Horizontal and place at the right side. Place
another copy of Element #19 then, shadow 30%. At the right side past
Element #18b, shadow 40%. At the frame left top corner place Element #7,
with shadow. On it place Element #4b. Using Eraser Tool remove the
bunny from that element, then shadow. Now make a copy of 'here comes'
layer. On the original layer remove word 'HERE' on the copy remove
work 'COMES'. Move copy layer on the left side, above the word 'COMES'.
Select both copies and Convert to Smart Object. From the kit past
Paper #8 and Create Clipping Mask. Add stork, size 2 color white and
shadow. Place the full size tube now. Use filter ot effect of choice
on the tube and add shadow on 50%. At the tube legs place Element #15,
rotate and shadow on 40%. Click on the 'rester 4' layer and place
Paper #1. Create Clipping Mask and add Color Overlay,
color red and Opacity 50%. 

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 #8.
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.
