***What you'll need***

Tube of choice.
I am using the artwork of Danny Lee
You must purchase a license to use his tubes and can do so HERE


Scrapkit of Choice

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


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


Open frame 1
Add to your canvas
Resize down to 70%
Rotate -10 degrees
Add a drop shadow


Open Paper 6
Resize to 600px by 600px
Add to your canvas just below the frame
Use your magic wand to select inside the frame
Select → Modify → Expand, by 5px
Invert the selection
On the paper layer press delete
Deselect


Open Paper 12
Resize to 600px by 600px
Add to your canvas just above the white background layer
Apply the layer mask here


Add the tube to the canvas
Resize and reposition to your liking
Duplicate this layer
On the top one
Filter → Blur → Gaussian Blur, 3.0px
Change the blend mode to soft light
On the bottom tube
Add a drop shadow


Add your tube again under the frame
Resize and reposition to your liking
I flipped mine horizontally
Erase any of the tube that's outside the frame
Change the blend mode to luminosity
Lower the Opacity to 50%


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


branch

leaf 1
flower 5
ribbon 2
deco tree
plastic star

bell
snowman 2
bow 1

snow overlay (no drop shadow, erase this that's over the tube and around the edges a bit)

Add your name


Image → Trim
Top left pixel color all boxes checked

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