♥ PTU Tutorial - Dear Santa, please define 'Good'

This tutorial was written by me on December 10, 2013 using Photoshop CS6 but any version will work.
Any resemblance to any other tutorial is pure coincidence. 
I wrote it assuming that you have a working knowledge of PS.


Tube of choice. I'm using the artwork of Alfadesire.
You must purchase a license to be able to use her tubes. Get the tube HERE.
Kit of choice. I'm using PTU kit 'Christmas Bliss' from Tiny Turtle Designs. 
You can buy it HERE.
Template - I am using Dee's template at Dangerously Delicious.Christmas Template 5 - download it HERE.
Mask 10 from Dee. WINTER MASKS 9-12 download HERE
Fonts of choice. I am using PTU font SNF Ambrosia for the name and Uni 05_53 for credits.

Open template. Remove first two layers - Info and Font name.
You don't need them. I downsized the canvas and template from 700 to 650.

Now lets add few papers on the template.
I used only 5 papers from the kit - Christmas Bliss Papers (46)(8)(5)(15)(47)

(46) - light green circle, top light green square, bottom light green square, green rectangle 

(8) - dark green rectangle, middle dark green circles

(5) - top red rectangle, bottom red rectangle, red oval

(15) - top brown rectangle, bottom brown rectangle

(47) - bottom white circle, top white circle

3 green rectangles - Take close up tube. Place it as you wish - right click -  create clipping mask. 
Apply Porcelain filter and patterns or any filters you like  - I used Dots Pattern.
Do this three times, for each rectangle.

Now add the tube. Downsize it a bit. Apply filters - I used Porcelain filter and Smart Sharpen  on the tube.  
Drop shadow - Opacity - 40% - Distance 5px - Spread 0 px - Size 5px.

Now add elements. You can add them as you wish or follow mine tag as guideline.
I used Sharpen tool on each element. Drop shadow - Opacity - 50% - Distance 5px - Spread 0 px - Size 5px.

Elements used:
Christmas Bliss Elements (71) & (6) placed between top/bottom light green square and green rectangle.

Elements placed below Tube Layer - (71)(75)(98)(32)(2)(19)(50)(100)(80)(92)(73)
Elements placed above Tube Layer - (72)(103)(118)(63)(6)

Add mask. I used Christmas Bliss Papers (8) for the mask.

Now add your copyright information and your name. Save tag. 

And that's it.
