This Tutorial was written on November 15th 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 Spazz
You must purchase a license to use their tubes and can do so HERE
This kit is part of a limited time collab @ Pimp my Tags with Scraps
It's until there are 40 sold or it's been up for 30 days so, be sure to get it while it lasts!

Scrapkit of Choice
I am using the scrapkit “Candy Girl” by Pimp'd Dezings
You can find this HERE
It is a part of a freebie collab that you get when you purchase the matching tube!
So again, get these while you can!
The name is an alpha that was created by Designs by Sarah, it's also part of this collab

Mask of Choice
I am using BigMask019 by Vix
You can find this for download HERE

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

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

Open frame-03
Add to your canvas
Resize down by 75%
Add a drop shadow

Open pp-03
Resize to 600px by 600px
Add to your canvas
Use your magic wand to select inside the frame
Select → Modify → Expand, by 8
Invert the selection
On the paper layer press delete

Open pp-01
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
Filter → Blur → Gaussian Blur, 3.0px
Change the blend mode to soft light
Add a drop shadow to the bottome tube

Above the paper frame layer
Add you tube once more
I flipped mine horizontally
Erase any that is outside the frame
Change the blend mode to luminosity
Lower the opacity to 80%

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

print-01 (no drop shadow)
snowflake-03 (no drop shadow)
snowflake-03 (no drop shadow)
print-02 (no drop shadow)
print-02 (no drop shadow)
snowflake-04 (no drop shadow)

Add your name
I used the alpha by Designs by Sarah and spelled out the name I wanted to add, I added an outer glow as well as a drop shadow here

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!
