Unusual christmas card 3d

Hi,
I found this tutrial and I'm absolutely desperate to know how to achieve such an effect. Unfortunaletly, for me the tutorial is too obscure. Can anyone solve this riddle? What is the step by step, including with which tool some steo was made.
There it is: http://alfoart.com/christmas_card_1.html

A very nice effect. The steps are laid out pretty good.

I've contacted the author and I'll be getting the .psd file pretty soon.
MiningArt They probably are but take into account the fact that I'm not so advanced.

Re: Unusual christmas card 3d

Here's my effort. Not exactly Christmassy though.
Not that pleased with it as something just doesn't work. it doesn't really look like its inside the card. And the palm tree cut out wasn't great but then my low res photo wasn't easy to work with!
Maybe if i was to drop it down so that the sea/beach line was on the fold of the card...
I really like the effect in the tutorial so i'll keep working at it.

Re: Unusual christmas card 3d

butlermike, you can see the basic effect in your try.
Palms, reading through it sounds reasonable, but haven't tried to actually do it.
update:
OK, tried it one time. Nothing like the example, but sorta like a card maybe.

The image is a little too flat. Maybe you add some sticking out clouds on the right hand side of the image. I'm gonna try the tutorial this weekend.

Re: Unusual christmas card 3d

Leena i have found that sometimes a tut just dosent "click" into place, but you have the right attitude give it a go

butler mike a great go, I think the palm trees look good, One thing to look at again maybe is the sky/sea image i think that the perspective isnt right for the card.

John looks like a card again i think the perspective isnt quite right on the top of the card

And you are a rotten lot as i am starting to get itchy fingers and may well have to give it a try (when i find some time )
