Lets Get This Party Started

For this tut I used the absolutely beautiful kit
Happy New Year from Heaven Dreams
available at SCRAPPETIZING

I also used the lovely artwork of Keith Gravey
You need a license to use this tube available from MPT 
Font used is Alex Brush 

Open a new image of 700 x 700.
I like starting big to aid with the placement
and then resize later lol.
Open paper HD_Happy_New_Year_paper08_tgs
and paste as a new layer.

Now this tut is so simple and you can use any elements
you like to get it how you want but I used these ones.
All were resized and sharpened using the unsharp mask
Radius 1, Strength 75 and Clipping 1

HD_Happy_New_Year_element_26_tgs rotated 40 degrees left
Also of course add your tube and position as desired
you can use my example as a guide.
Add drop shadows to all your elements and the tube.
I used various settings to give the tag a bit of depth.

Once you have all your elements placed as you want them
crop the additional space from around the tag but leave 
a bit of room for the frame so that it wont 
cut into your elements.
I used Edge Design 01 which is built into psp 9.
If you find it does cut into the elements undo it and undo the 
crop until you get it where you need it.

Merge visible and Resize the tag if it is still 
too big for your tastes.
Add your copyright information and watermark.
For the text I used Alex Brush 60pt and added a drop shadow
using these settings H1, V1, Opacity 40 and Blur 2

Then add Eye candy 4000 Gradient glow using these settings
along with a gold color tone from the paper I used #e7e088

Export your tag as a jpg and you are done.
