This Tutorial was written on November 15th, 2011 by Ashly
It is of my own creation and any resemblance to any other tutorial is purely coincidental.

Please do not copy and do not post elsewhere.
This tutorial is written as if you have a general knowledge on how to use the program.

***What you'll need***
Program of Choice.
I am using Photoshop CS5

Tube(s) of choice.
I am using the artwork of SkyScraps
You must purchase these tubes for use and you can do so HERE and HERE

Kit of choice.
I am using a scrapkit called “Twilight Wedding” by ChiChi Designs

Mask of Choice
I am using Mask_105 by WeeScotslass
You can snag that from HERE

Filters Needed
Xero – Radience
Xero – Porcelain – dot and cross

~*~*~ Let's Get Started~*~*~

Open up a new canvas
600px x 600px.
Flood fill with white

Open Frame4
copy and past into your canvas.
Rotate it Clockwise 90 degrees.
Resize by 65% and rotate -10 degrees.
Position in the upper left of your canvas.
Duplicate this layer, on the new layer, flip horizontally.
Position in the lower right of the canvas, just slightly overlapping the other frame.

Open Paper9
Resize to 600px by 600px
Copy and paste onto your canvas, drag this layer below your frame layers in your layer pallate.
Using your magic wand select inside each of your frames.
Select → Modify → Expand, by 5
Invert your selection and on the paper layer press delete.
Filter → → dot and cross
amount – 15, Cross distance – 10, cross width – 2

Add a drop shadow to each of your frames.
Select inside of the bottom right frame with your wand again
Expand by 5.
Click on the other frame layer and press delete.

Go to your Bella tube.
I am using the half body, non vampire Bella (Layer 3 for this tube)
Copy and paste onto your canvas
Resize and position as you'd like to.
Duplicate this layer and drag one just about the bottom frame the other just above.
Erase any bits that may be sticking outside the frame at the bottom for the bottom tube layer.
Add a drop shadow of choice to this one.

Go to the top Bella tube layer.
Erase anything at the bottom that is outside the frames and what also overlaps the frame.

Filter → Xero → Porcelain
All at default except the blue channel slide all the way to the left to 0.

Filter → Xero → Radiance
Something subtle that you like for this tube. I went just a tad darker here.

Filter → Sharpen → Unsharp Mask
All at default settings.

Go to your Edward tube.
Copy and paste onto your canvas.
Position this layer between the paper frame background we made and the frame he's going into
Resize and reposition as you'd like to.
I flipped mind horizontaly.
Delete anything that is outside of the frames on this one.
Change the blend mode to luminostiy.
Duplicate the later

Filter → Blur → Gaussian Blur, Radius of 5
Change the blend mode to saturation, the opacity at 80%

Open Paper15
Resize to 600px by 600px
Copy and paste onto your canvas.
Drag this layer to just above the white background layer.
Apply your layer mask here.

Now we're just going to embellish the tag :D
Do this to your liking, with drop shadows of choice.

I used the following, in this order in the pallate:

~Below the Mask Layer~
ScatteredHearts (duplicated, no drop shadow)

~Above the Mask Layer~
PetalsSparkles (no drop shadow)
WA2 (no drop shadow)
Leaves (duplicated, no drop shadow)
Lantern String (flipped horizontally)

~Above the Top Bella tube layer~

Add your name to your tag.
Image → Trim
Top left pixel color, all boxes checked.

Resize if you'd like to.

***Most Important!!***
Add your copyright information.

I went and changed my white background to black and erased any of the white hearts the looked like they were cut off or I didn't like.

If you're happy with your tag hide the white background layer and saved your image as a .png to keep the transparnecy or .jpg if you'd prefer :)

Thanks so much for trying my tutorial!!

Huge Hugs,
