2 Commercial Use For Christmas - 1 is FREE!

One of my pet peeves this time of year are Candy Cane elements in scrapbook kits that have straight lines on them instead of curving and wrapping stripes around them like real candy canes. So I've put my money where my mouth is, so to speak, with a double SWEET Treat this week!

First, a perfectly curving striped candy cane frame that is as easy as can be with my new Photoshop Action. It's OK for commercial use, too.

It's SUCH a fun element! Use one of your own favorite stripes patterns, or use one of the 4 or 5 red and white candy stripes in the free Photoshop .pat file I've included with the action. I've left the layers intact for you at the end of the action so that you can adjust the shading to taste.

It's been tested in PS7, Photoshop CS, CS2, CS3, and CS4 - as well as PSE5.

But wait, there's more CURVING candy canes this week, too - a FREE Candy Cane Element Template. Don't settle for a straight-lined candy cane ... use this free template! It's in layers in both PNG files and a PSD file so it will work in any program and let you perfectly coordinate it for matching colors and styles.

It's free and OK for commercial use, too.

Enjoy!
