TUTORIAL: making one more Christmas text

Today we will make an effect that is not too flashy nor too discreet. This effect gives a resulting material that reminds me that mirrored balls used in Christmas trees.

To create the final image, use this free text creator and make these settings:
- Text: Christmas (or what you want);
- Font size: Normal;
- Margin: 3;
- Background color: FF4040;
- Font name: WalrusGumbo.

So we get a text like this (click to enlarge):

Extra tips:
- don't choose a very geometric font face (this kind of font is not suitable for a Christmas message);
- in this case, a green background can generate a nice result too;
- you can use several other chrome text effects starting from this text generator catalog.
