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.

You must purchase a license to use her tubes and can do so HERE
This was a bonus tube but be sure to check out all her awesome tubes at CDO

Scrapkit of Choice
I am using “May Flowers” by Alika's Scraps

Additional Filters Needed
PhotoEffex – Scanlines

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

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

Open as10
Add to your canvas
Duplicate the frame on the right and then erase it from the bottom
(so you have each frame on a separate layer)
Resize both by 80%
Arrange on your canvas similar to mine
Add a drop shadow

Open paper03
Resize to 600px by 600px
Add to your canvas
Use your magic wand to select inside the frame
Select → Modify → Expand, by 3
Invert the selection
On the paper layer press delete
Filter → Blur → Motion Blur
Angle – 25 degrees, Distance – 96 Pixels
Duplicate 3 times (so there are four of the same layer)
Merge all of them together
Use your magic wand to select inside the frame
Select → Modify → Expand, by 3
Invert the selection
Press delete

Duplicate this layer
Filer → PhotoEffex → Scanlines
All at default, change the width to 3
Change the blend mode to soft light

Open paper01
Resize to 600px by 600px
Add to your canvas just above the white background layer
Apply the layer mask here

Add your tube to your canvas, resize and reposition to your liking
Move below the frame
Erase any of the tube that's outside the frame at the bottom
Duplicate this layer
Move above the frame, erase any of the tube over the bottom of the frame
Duplicate this layer
Filter → Blur → Gaussian Blur, 3.0px
Change the blend mode to Soft light
To the bottom tube add a drop shadow

Add the close up to the other frame, in between the two paper background layers we made
Erase any 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:

as03 (no drop shadow)
as08 (no drop shadow)
as08 (no drop shadow)
Sparkles of choice (I got mine from Alika's Total Zirconia kit :) )

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!
