This Tutorial was written on August 9th 2012 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.
Do not translate or script.
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
But, if you know your tools you can use any program of choice

Tube of choice.
I am using the artwork of Elizabeth Austin
You must purchase a license to use her tubes and can do so HERE

Scrapkit of Choice
I am using “Tearful Love” by Alika's Scraps
You can find this for purchase HERE

Additonal Filers Needs
VanDerLee → Unplugged X → Pattern Offset

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

Start a new canvas
600px by 600px
Flood fill with white.

Open as56
Add to your canvas
Resize to 70%
Add a drop shadow

Open Paper07
Resize to 600px by 600px
Add to your canvas below the frame
Use your magic wand to select inside the frame
Select → Modify → Expand, by 5
Invert the selection and on the paper layer press delete
Duplicate this layer

On the new one
Filter → VanDerLee → Unplugged-X → Pattern Offset
Change the blend mode to soft light

Add your tube to your canvas
Resize and reposition to your liking
Have below the frame but above the paper layer
Erase any of the tube that's outside the frame
Change the blend mode to Luminosity
Lower the Opacity to 50%
Move between the two paper layers so it's below the one we added the pattern offset to

Add the tube to the canvas once more
Resize and reposition to your liking
Duplicate this layer
On the bottom layer add a drop shadow
On the new layer
Filer → Blur → Gaussian Blur, 3.0 px
Change the blend mode to screen, opacity at 50%

Now add which elements you'd like
I used the following from the bottom up with a drop shadow unless stated:

as64 (no drop shadow)
as121 (no drop shadow)
as125 (no drop shadow)
as79 (no drop shadow)
as126 (added an outer glow here as well)

Add your name

Image → Trim
Top left pixel color all boxes checked

Resize if you'd like to

****Most Important****
Add your copy right information

If you're happy with you're result save to your liking and you're done!
