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 “Wild About Coffee” by Candy's Treats
You can find this HERE

Mask of Choice
I am using Mask141 by Weescotslass Creations
You can find this HERE

Additional Filters Needed
Xenofex 2 - Constellation

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

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

Open frame4
Add to your canvas
Resize down by 85%
Add a drop shadow

Open PP7
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

Open PP10
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
Filter → Blur → Gaussian Blur, 3.0px
Change the blend mode to Soft light, Lower to opacity to about 50%
On the bottom tube
Add a drop shadow

Add the close up to the canvas just below the frame
Resize and reposition to your liking
I flipped mine horizontally
Erase any of the tube outside the frame
Change the blend mode to luminosity
Lower to 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:

CoffeeStain (no drop shadow)
SmokeHeart (no drop shadow)

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!

Now if you'd like to animate let's continue :)

Go to the SmokeHeart layer
Duplicate it 3 times so you have a total of 4 of them

On the bottom layer of the heart

Filer → Xenofex 2 → Constellation
With the following Settings:

Add this to each of the layers hitting random seed once on each
Got to your animation window and have the delay set to .15 sec
Set to repeat forever

Hide all but the first SmokeHeart Layer

Add a new animation layer
Hide the first SmokeHeart layer and unhide the second

Do this for the last two frames as well

Press play and watch it go :D

If you're happy with your result save as a .gif and you're done!
