I am using SSEmb_Stacked Shapes_Heart in PSE11.  When I apply a style (BMU_SSStyles_Wes XMas) to the top folded layer, I lose my fold.  I have tried blending modes and adjusting opacity.  Neither makes the fold visible.  What am I missing?

Hi Joey,

 

I've done this with PSE 11. Try this:

1. Open the stacked shape you want to use

2. Duplicate the topmost layer

3. Turn off the visibility of that layer

4. Activate the layer below the invisible one

5. Apply your style to that layer

6. Make the invisible layer visible again and activate it

7. Play with blending modes, opacity, and you may also want to try adjusting the style settings.

 

I either add color or clip a paper to the bottom layer after I've finished getting the top layer to look the way I want it to.

 

HTH. Let us know if you still need more help. I can see about getting some screen shots if you need them.

Ah..ha!  Worked perfectly.  So simple, but I would Never have gone there by myself.  Thank you so much.  Can't tell you how much it means to have such knowledgeable, HELPFUL, people to turn to.  Love this place!
