This Tutorial was written on December 8th, 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 of choice.
I am using the artwork of Zindy Neilsen
You must purchase her artwork for use and can do so HERE

Kit of choice.
I am using a PTU Scrapkit called, “Dark Side of the Icicle” by Alika's Designs
You can purchase that for use HERE
You'll also need some sparkles of choice from another kit.

Mask of Choice
I am using Mask141 by Weescotslass
You can find her masks HERE

Filters Needed
Xero – Radience

Snow Animation of choice
I used this one you can download HERE

~*~*~ Let's Get Started~*~*~
First we're going to start by opening the snow animation in photoshop. (you may need to open it in Animation shop if you're using PSP here :) )
You're going to make each from individual and with each frame
Edit → Define Pattern
Save as something you'll remember I did Snow1, Snow2....etc.
Now, we'll come back to this later.

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

Open as28
Copy and paste onto your canvas.
Resize by 80%
Add a drop shadow of choice.

Open paper06
Resize to 600px by 600px
Copy and paste onto your canvas
Drag Below your frame layer.
Use your magic wand and select inside of your frame.
Select → Modify → Expand by 5
Invert your selection and while on your paper background layer press delete.

Open paper11
Resize to 600px by 600px
Copy and paste onto your canvas.
Drag below your frame background, just about your white layer.
Apply your mask here.

Open up your tube and copy and paste it onto your canvas.
Resize and Reposition to your liking.
Once you're happy with that duplicate this and drag one just below your frame,
The other leave just above.
Erase any parts of both that are sticking outside of your frame or on your frame.
One the bottom on add a drop shadow of choice.

On the top tube layer.
Filter → Xero → Radience
Click random a few times until you get an effect you like.

Filter → Sharpen → Unsharp Mask, all at default settings.

Now, we're just going to embellish our tags.
Do so to your liking, rotated, resized and drop shadowing to you liking.

I used the following, in this order with drop shadow unless otherwise specified.

~Above the Mask layer, below the paper frame background layer~
as23 (no drop shadow, duplicated and repositioned)

~Above the frame background layer, below the bottom tube layer~

~Above the Frame layer, below the top tube layer~

as03 (I erased parts to make it look like it was looping around the frame, no drop shadow)
as42 (I also added an outer glow to this one)

~Above the top tube layer~
I added some of my own word art here.
As45 (duplicated and resized a bit)
as46 (duplicated and resized a bit)
Add your sparkles of choice here.

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 here!

If you don't want to animate then you're done!
Save to your likings and I'd love to see any and all results!
If you do then we'll continue on.

Go back to your layers and ctl + click on the frame background layer to select it.
Click on the layer with the berry bush and add a new layer.
Click on your flood fill tool and at the top change the mode to pattern.
Click the arrow and find the first frame of our snow, on our new layer flood fill the selected area with our pattern.
Add a new layer and flood fill with the second layer.
Continue this until you've got a new layer with each of the different animation layers filled there.
I ended up with 10 total.
I didn't like how bright white it was so I change the opacity on each to 50%.

Then go to your animation window and on the first only have the first snow layer showing.
Add a new animation layer and hide the first but unhide the second.
Do this for each until you have enough animation frames (again I have 10 ;) )

I set the delay to .1 seconds, set to loop forever.
Presse play and if you're happy with your animation save it for web and you're done!
Thank you for trying this and if you have any questions feel free to ask!
