This Tutorial was written on November 6th 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 VeryMany
You must purchase a license to use their tubes and can do so HERE

Scrapkit of Choice
I am using “Gift Giving” by Designs by Sarah
You can find this HERE
I also used a scattered snow element from her “Sparkleberry” Kit.  This is optional and you can find something similar to use if you’d like, sparkles would look nice for this as well J

Mask of Choice
Mask105 by Weescotslass Creations
You can find this for download HERE
