Supplies Needed

Artwork by ©PinUpToons at CDO

Old Christmas Temps - NB by Dee
Link on right under Zipped Templates

Pepita Script

Eye Candy 5 - Impact - Gradient Glow
Richard Rosenman - Scanlines
Xero - Fritillary 
and/or any other filters of choice


Okay, let's get started
Remember to save often!!!

Open template and shift D
Close original and re-size canvas to 800 x 800
Crop after tag is done
Unhide and fill bg layer in with white

Delete top 10 layers except the Novemburrr blue layer
So from info layer down to w/a shadow layer except the Novemburrr blue layer

Delete white square layer as well

There are a few basic steps for this template that are repetitive.
1. Select layer
2. Float
3. Add new layer
4. Fill with color of choice
5. Apply filter of choice
6. Apply gradient glow  and noise at 30 to original layer

Go HERE if you aren't familiar on my way of adding gradient glow using EC 5 Impact 

We are going to start at the bottom layer (in layers pallet)
and work our way up the template following the steps above.

Use my tag as guide if needed

large blue circle - #f1b1a1 + fritillary (7,30,10,10)

Paste mirrored close up tube and crop
Change blend mode to multiply at 26% opacity
Duplicate tube and change blend mode to screen at 100% opacity

white circle - #f9f4ee

Close all layers besides tubes, circle, circle gradient glow layer, and cream colored inner circle
Merge visible and move up and right to where you like it

Open all layers back up

blue oval - #f9f4ee + scanlines (6,3,-255,0,0 #f3c3b7)

small blue circle - #ed887b + #eca697 gradient

snowflakes - opacity to 40

dotted circle - #f9f4ee

blue strip - same gradient as above

novemburrr blue - colorize to match + move to bottom right-ish area

Paste tube and place where you like

Once you get that done now copy merge

Paste as new layer at the bottom above white bg

Gaussian blur - 7

Texture Effect - Mosaic Antique - Default

Circle preset shape
Draw out an circle larger than your circle layer
Add new layer
Type out text on curve
Convert to raster
Delete circle layer

Add bevel of choice and gel effect if desired

Add name 
In layers pallet click text arrow
Right click name
Convert text to curves - As character shapes
Click arrow
Now select each letter of your name and move right or left and up and down
Any way you like
Apply bevel and gel effect if desired

Close bg layer

Add drop shadow to layers

Add copyright info

Crop and Save
