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 KiwiFireStorm
You must purchase a license to use his tubes and can do so HERE

Scrapkit of Choice
I am using “So Lucky” by Pimp'd Designz

Mask of Choice
I am using Mask363 by Vix

Additional Filters Needed
Xero - Softmood

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

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

Open frame-01
Add to your canvas
Resize down by 70%
Add a drop shadow

Open pp-03
Add to your canvas below the frame
Use your magic wand to select inside the frame
Select → Modify → Expand, by 5
Invert the selection
On the paper layer press delete

Open pp-11
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
Erase and of the legs that are extending beyond the frame
Move above the frame
Erase any of the legs that are now over the frame
Filter → Xero → Softmood
With the following settings:

Change the blend mode to soft light
On the bottom tube
Add a drop shadow

Add the tube a couple more times
Between the bottom tube already there and the paper frame background
I flipped one horizontally
Erase any of the tubes that are outside the frame
Merge the two layers together
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:

light-dots (no drop shadow, change blend mode to soft light)

Add your name

Crop your tag to get rid of the access space that's not needed

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!
