Any resemblance to another
tutorial is purely coincidental.
For this tutorial, I’m using
a tube by Joel Adams
You can find his tubes at
Tube of choice
Scrap of choice
I’m using one by Schnegge
Called Baby Got Bug
You can find it on her blog
Wordart of choice
I am using one by Wordartworld
It was free at time of tutorial

Open a 600x600 new image.
Open up your tube & scrap supplies.

Choose a flower of choice.
Resize 50%
Paste as a new layer.

Apply the plugin
Mura's Meister Copies - Encircle
Default settings

Once you have your circle flower frame,
resize this layer 115%
Add a drop shadow
2,2,50,5 Black

Open flower petals.
Paste at the bottom of the frame.

Click inside the frame with magic wand tool.
Selections modify expand by 5
Paste a paper of choice as new layer.
Selections invert & press delete.
Select none.
Move under frame layer.

Open a flower bow element.
Paste on the bottom part of the frame.
Add the earlier drop shadow to the bow.

Open a standing flower element.
Resize 50%
Paste by the bow part of the element.
Arrange in layer palette so that it is just
under the flower bow element.

Open glittler sparkles.
Resize 80%
Paste across the flower bow element.

Paste your main tube as a new layer.
Position on the tag in center of the frame.
Add a drop shadow to the tube.

Open a bug of choice.
Resize 50%
Paste beside your main tube.

Open a single leaf element.
Resize 50%
Apply mura's meister as you did
with the flower originally.

Once you have the leaf circle,
resize this layer 115%
Move to bottom in layer palette.
You want the leaf frame to appear
slightly larger then the flower frame.

Open wordart of choice.
For the one I used I resized
by 50% twice & 60% once.
If using a different one, resize as needed.
Paste as a new layer.
Add a drop shadow.

Merge layers visible.
Resize 88%
Add copyright info & name.
Save as a png.
