Christmas Tags to Print

Some pretty last minute Christmas Tags.
Each approx 2.5 inches in diameter.
Each zip has:
6 tag images in .png format at 200 dpi
Layouts [ready to print] with tags and lightly textured tag backs for A4 and American Letter

Personal Use.

I suggest using a card weight of about 200gms.
I usually do a test with ordinary copy paper to make sure I have my alignment correct for front and back.

A Very Happy Christmas!

Art Nouveau Rose - Printable Card

I created this elegant card using my Art Nouveau Potted Rose brush and mask.
Originally designed for a friend for a Wedding Invitation, I think the card would also double as a pretty gift card.
When folded , the card measures 3.3 X 8 inches
I've included American Letter and A4 layouts and a textured paper for the card in my 

Potted Rose Art Nouveau Brush

I do love some Art Nouveau designs :)
I've opted for a slightly modern approach in the design of this brush but I think it would still fit in well with more vintage styled designs.
The free zip to download includes maximum sized brushes suitable for Paint Shop Pro 9 - X5
I've also included a .png file which could be used in PSP or other graphics programs for a brush creation or mask.
Limited Commercial Use.
Please read my Terms of Use file which is included in the zip.
