This template is available with a layered .PSD file for Photoshop. Not all of the examples are exactly like the layer presets. For each photo I used, I adjusted the gold dust layers, the textured text layers, and for a few also the opacity of the photograph.
I’ve made a small video showing you how to add textures to your text layers, as well as how to turn your photos or graphics to patterns. See this blog post for the tutorial.
The font I used is free, and you’ll find information on it below, and in the downloadable file as well. You’ll also find the links to where I purchased the textures I used. There are also plenty of online sources that provide free textured files, such as gold, silver… et cetera.
The text is fully editable. I’ve just chosen two popular holiday sayings. Feel free to add names, or your own favorite wording. You can also add, or remove the drop shadow effect. The textured text will look strange, or give you an error message (you’ll need to create textured layers <- see my tutorials below) You can change the font, I myself find it frustrating when I find a template and in order to ‘get the look’ I have to purchase another font. Don’t get me wrong I love fonts, and I’m good at finding alternatives, still free is better for free downloads i.m.o.
NOTE: You must be experienced in Photoshop to be able to edit these files. It may be possible by using GIMP, which is an open source editing program, that is in some ways similar to Photoshop, however, I don’t have any experience with it.
