Christmas Card

Hey everyone, I'm back with some new work ! =D
and, I got to find this super tutorial : [link]
so I wanted to give it a try ^^
Certainly one of the most difficult photomanipulation I've made, but I'm quite happy with the result ^^
Hope that you'll like it (even though I messed the moon :( )

I do not owe any of the photo, so thanks to those stocks :

Pen : [link]

and most of the texture : [link]

Merry Christmas to everyone ^^

Don't steal my work :)

Oh my, thanks to all of you, I wasn't expecting so many faves and so nice comments ! :love:
I'm trying to thank all of you, so sorry if I don't !

Well I don't really like the use of "steal", but as long as you say I'm the one who made this, no prob ^^
By the way, from the look of how many people downloaded it, I don't think you're the first one to do this, but at least, you're the first one to ask me permission, thanks :)

It's gorgeus. Coul you tell me how have you donde the table and the card,because It's very dificult the tutorial for me. thanks

Thanks, I'll try but it's a year since I made it so I'm not sure if I'll be able to explain quite well !
I'm working with GIMP so unlike in the tutorial, I wasn't able to create the form directly from the card he gives as an example. So I made a new layer in which I pasted the card model, then create an other layer, I selected all the bottom of the card and in the new layer I filled it with the shade. Same thing for the upper part of card. Then I kinda follow his instructions (couldn't do everything if I remember well since I'm on GIMP)
As for the table, same I couldn't place the table as he does so I simply "distorted" the layer so that the table may seem in the same plan as the bottom of the card ! Then adding the shading as he does !
Hope it helps, let me know if you have any other questions :)
