Purrrfect Christmas

This a quick and easy peasy tutorial was created by Rapsody on December 16th, 2013.
Any similarity to any other tutorial is purely a coincidence.
I have not used plugins but please use them where you see fit.
For my drop shadows I have used:
Black: Offset -10 Horizontal 5 Opacity 50 Blur 10 Color Black
You may share this tut but please share the only the link, thank you
I am using PSP 16 but any version should work!
 ~~~~~~ ~~~~~~
We are using the lovely art of  Lisa Victoria Victoria LV0076,  you must have a license to use this art. Lisa's tubes must be purchased at UpYourArt
This wonderful kit “Christmas Cheer” by Dezines By Baby Dragon can be found HERE at my favorite scrap store ScrapsFromTheHeart!  What a fun kit Becca and there are so many other wonderful elements to use!!!!!
Font: Any script one, I used HaloHandletter.
 ~~~~~~ ~~~~~~
We will be using the following: frame 01 resize 75% mirror
My word art:

Paper 04 resize 50%
Ele 15 Christmas tree
Tube LV0076
Ele13 Merry Christmas
There are some other great elements that would enhance this tag, take a peek!

**After you use each element close it so you have a clean workspace.
 Okay, let’s get started!
Please note, you can reposition the elements once completed before merging!

1)      Open new image with a white background 700 x 700
2)      Paste frame 01 as a new layer, mirror and resize 75%
3)      Apply my  word art as shown on my tag, add a drop shadow.
4)      Take paper 04, resize 50%.
5)      Return to the frame layer.  With your selection tool, click inside the frame, invert.
6)       Go to the new layer, modify by 2, expand, and paste the resized paper  04 into the selection (in the new layer.) Select none, move layer down one.
7)      Return to the frame layer.  Paste Ele15 Christmas tree as a new layer move so it is just outside the word art.  Add your drop shadow.
8)      Add your tube LV0076 and resize to 70%, position it, use my tag as a guide.
9)      Past Ele 13 Merry Christmas as a new layer, move to the bottom, go to the cat’s toe and select,, return to the Merry Christmas element and delete so the toes appear to be on top. Add your drop shadow.
10)   Make sure everything is where you like it, and you have your drop shadows.  Merge visible.
11)   Add your copyright information, and UpYourArt license number.
               Add the name you wish and enjoy, hope your Christmas is Purrrfect!

                 Save as a PNG, you are done, YAY
