Choose a colour from the kit and use the rectangle selection tool
and draw out a small thin rectangle,
use my finished tag for reference.
Floodfill the selected rectangle
Go to effects-texture effects-texture
and scroll through the textures untill you find one you like.
Play around with the percentage and the settings to see what you prefer.
apply the texture.
Duplicate your rectangle layer and place them apart.
One above the other towards the top of the tag.
Use my tag for reference.
Go to your text tool and find a big bold font.
I used TEAM MT
set your background and foreground colours to white
text size to 100 and floating
Write 'HEARTFELT' leave the text floating,
Open up paper04 and resize to 20%
Copy and Paste as a new layer.
Make sure your new paper is active in the layer palette,
You should now have 2 layers with text,
one is a paper(TOP) and one is white only.(BOTTOM)
Use your pick tool and move the white text slightly
to give the text a slightly 3D/hi-lighted look.
Add a drop shadow to the white text layer.
Make the paper text layer active,
layers- merge-merge down.
Now open up both the glitters and resize to 20%
Paste them onto your canvas drop them slightly over the edges of your frames and rectangles
this adds depth to the finished tag.
Open up frame03 and resize to 20%
Paste as a new layer
Place towards the bottom of your canvas
add a drop shadow as before.
Use your rectangle selection tool
draw around the centre of the outside of the frame
Open up another paper and resize to 20%, I used paper06
or flood fill with a colour of choice,
With the paper layer active,
Back to your rectangle selections tool.
Select around the first box in frame03
open up 3 different tubes or images
paste the first as a new layer,
place it inside the first frame opening,
when you are happy,
selections and invert again
Now go to effects-illumination effects-sunburst
apply these settings.
Do the same with the remaining 2 tubes,
add the tube and then the sunburst effect.
I added some roses and paper hearts to the tag,
i resized to 20% and then used the pick/distortion tool
to resize further if i felt it needed it.
Make the top layer active
I opened up a further 2 tubes and resized them to 75% of the originals,
paste them on your tag.
I had them so that they were 'standing' on the bottom of the frame.
See my finished tag for reference
Add the same drop shadow.
