This Tutorial was written on November 27th 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 Alex Prihodko
You must purchase a license to use his tubes and can do so HERE

Scrapkit of Choice
I am using “Pink Christmas” by Pimp'd Designz
You can find this HERE

Mask of Choice
I am using a mask I'm not sure where I got it from
I'll post it here but, if it's yours or you know who it belongs to please let me know!
I'll take it down and post a link back to their site

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

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

Open frame-03
Add to your canvas
Resize down to 50%
Rotate 13 degrees
Duplicate this layer
Rotate new layer41 degress
Duplicate this layer
Rotate the new layer -27 degress
Add a drop shadow to each of them

Open pp-01
Resize to 600px by 600px
Add to your canvas just below the frames
Use your magic wand to select inside the frames
Select → Modify → Expand, by 5px
Invert the selection
On the paper layer press delete

Open pp-09
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
Move below the frames
If any of the legs are extending beyond the frame erase it
Duplicate this layer
Move this one above the frames
Erase any of the legs that are over the frames
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%
On the duplicate layer
Filter → Blur → Gaussian Blur, 3.0px
Change the blend mode to soft light, opacity still at 50%
I also erase a bit of the frame extending into the one I've added the tube into

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

glitter-01 (no drop shadow)
snowflake-02 (no drop shadow)
snowflake-03 (no drop shadow)
snowflake-01 (no drop shadow)
snowflake-01 (no drop shadow)
snowflakes (no drop shadow)

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 your result save to your liking and you're done!
