A working knowledge of PSP is assumed.


3 tubes from same artist. I am using the art of Marika, which can be found at the CDO store.

My Supplies (heart paper)

Font used is AnnabelleJF

NOTE: This tutorial is written for the supplies I used. If you are using something different you may need to adjust some settings.

IPL = In Palette Layers

REMINDER: Delete the template layers once you're finished using. Unless otherwise stated.

I used the same drop shadow through out. H & V = 1. Opacity = 40. Blur = 4. Color is black.

Let's Begin

Open template and supplies in psp. Duplicate template and then delete original.

IPL, delete the credit layer.
I chose to keep the shadow layers, but you may want to delete them. Your choice.

Click on the white background layer. Create a new raster layer. Fill it with a color from your tube. I used, fdeac8. Apply mask62. Layers - Merge group. (We will resize later.)

Click on rectangle2. Select All - Float - Defloat. New Raster Layer. Fill with a color from your tube. I used, 659dc4. Select None. Effects - Textures - Blinds. Settings: Width = 12. Opacity = 30. Check horizontal. For the color, use a slightly lighter shade of the fill color. I used, c0ddf0.
Go to Adjust - Blur - Gaussian Blur - set to 2. Back to Adjust, this time, Add/Remove Noise. Add Noise. Setting: Gaussian - Monochrome - 10%. Drop shadow.

Click on rectangle1. Select All - Float - Defloat. New Raster layer. Fill with a color of choice. I used, f6a6b5. Give this the same noise effect you used for rectangle2. Go to Effects - Textures - Weave. Settings: Gap = 2. Width = 8. Opacity = 1. Check fill gaps. I used this color, fff5e1. Add drop shadow.

Click on the striped rectangle.  Select All - Float - Defloat. New Raster layer. Fill with a color or paper of choice. I made a heart paper to use. Feel free to use it if you like. Open it in psp. Go to Foreground color palette - Click the pattern tab. Select your paper of choice. If using the heart paper, set angle to 0, and scale to 70%. Fill rectangle. Select None. Add drop shadow.

For each of the stars I used a blue gradient. Foreground color is , 659dc4. Background color is white. In the foreground click the gradient tab. Settings: Style = Sunburst. Repeats = 0. H & V = 50. Check invert.
Click on a star. Select all - float - defloat. New raster layer. Fill with gradient color. Selections - Modify - Expand - by 2. New Raster Layer. Fill with blue color only. Select none. Still on the blue, go to Adjust - Blur - Gaussian Blur - set to 2. Adjust - Add/remove Noise. Add Noise. Set to 30.  IPL move the blue layer below the gradient. Give gradient a drop shadow.
Repeat these steps for the other stars.

I chose to keep all three frames white, and I kept the shadow layers.

Click on fill 1. Select All - Float - Defloat. New Raster layer. Fill with the same color you used for the mask layer. I used, fdeac8. Paste, as a new layer, one of your tubes. Resize to your liking. Selections - Invert. Delete. Select None. Give tube a drop shadow.
Repeat these steps for the other two frame fills. 

IPL, hide the mask and white background layers. Right click the bottom rectangle layer and merge visible. Resize down to 95%. Unhide the mask and bg layer. 
Using your Raster Deform tool, resize the mask layer to better fit your tag. I moved the top and bottom in a bit and pulled out the sides a tad. 

Add any elements to your liking. Add the copyright and name. Save.
