This Tutorial was written on July 31st 2013 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 Keith Garvey
You must purchase a license to use his tubes and can do so HERE

Scrapkit of Choice
I am using “Orange Crush” by Designs by Sarah
You can find this kit HERE
It was inspired by the tube I'm using in this tutorial

Mask of Choice
I am using Mask141 by Weescotslass Creations

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

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

Open frame 2
Add to your canvas
Resize down by 70%
Add a drop shadow

Open pp2

Use your magic wand to select inside the frame
Select → Modify → Expand, by 5
Invert the selection
On the paper layer press delete
Duplicate this layer
Filter → VanDerLee → Unplugged-X
Pattern offset
change the blend mode to soft light

Open pp-3
Resize to 600px by 600px
Add to your canvas just above the white background layer
Apply the layer mask here

Open your tube
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 circle frame at the bottom
Move this layer above the circle frame
Erase any of the tube that's over the frame
Filter → Sharpen → Smart Sharpen
Amount – 500%, Radius - .2px, Remove Gaussian Blur

Filter → Blur → Smart Blur
Radius – 3.7px, Threshold, .2

Filter → Sharpen → Sharpen
Change the blend mode to soft light
lower the opacity to 50%
To the bottom tube add a drop shadow

Add your tube in between the two paper layers a couple of times
Resize and position as you'd like
Erase any that's outside the frame
Change the blend mode to luminosity
Lower the opacity of them to 50%

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

print (no drop shadow)
print (no drop shadow)
ribbon frame
ribbon 4
ribbon 3
ribbon 2
ribbon 1
bow 1
arrow 2

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 to animate if you'd like to!

Duplicate the camera layer

Filter → Render → Lens Flare
Brightness – 100%
50-300mm zoom

Move the + to where the flash would occur

Now go to your animation window
Have two layers in it
Set to go forever
In the first one have the delay set to 2 seconds
and have the normal camera visible

In the second one have the delay at 0.2 seconds
With the camera with the flash visible

Press play and watch it go!

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