Easy Peasy Tut...Let's do It!!

Open your supplies in PSP.
Open a new canvas 700x700, you may
resize/crop later. Floodfill white.
Add a new raster layer. Selections,
select all. Copy and paste a paper
of choice from the kit into selection,
Select none. Apply a mask, and on your
layers pallette merge mask group.
Paste the frame as a new layer.
Using your magic wand, click inside
the frame. Selections>modify>expand8.
Resize and paste a paper of choice
as a new layer, drag below frame
layer. Dropshadow frame layer.
Resize and paste the blue bow as a
new layer, above the frame & dropshadow.
Resize the tree and place it to the left
of the bow, see above. I colorized
mine to match. Dropshadow. Resize
the wordart and place it above the tree.
I added some gradient glow so it
would stand out. If you don't have that filter,
you can dropshadow it using white. :)
Okies, .. Now resize any other elements
you like, and place them all around
the frame. Dropshadow. Add your tube of choice,
dropshadow, and position where
you want it inside the frame.
Dupicate the tube, drag the original
tube layer below the frame, the duplicated
tube should be above the frame layer.
Click on that tube layer & Erase all parts
hanging over the bow. Now click on
your masked layer and resize and
add some of the glitter all around.
See mine above or make it your own!
As always mine is just a guide.
Arrange all layers to your liking.
Now X out the bottom layer and your
mask layer. Merge visable the remaining layers.
Un X the hidden layers. Position all layers nicely.
Image Resize 80-90%
Bicubic resample all layers checked.

Hint: You can X out the bottom white
layer before saving to have a transparent bkg for forums..

Add your Artist © and your Name and WooT!! You Are Done!
Hope you enjoyed my tutorial & thanks for trying it! :)
Until next time!♥
