Let's get started !

Open your mask in PSP. New image 600x600. Floodfill with white.

Copy and paste Paper 6. New mask layer from image, Vix_ChristmasMask6, invert mask data unchecked, and merge group. I have added a gradient glow size 3 fat white and then drop shadow. I have used 2/2/40/4 throughout. 

Copy and paste Ribbon 2. Using your magic wand, select the middle of your ribbon frame. Selections & modify expand 3. Copy and paste Paper 10, selections invert, hit delete and do no deselect. Drag this layer beneath your ribbon frame layer. Copy and paste Snowfall and hite delete. Copy and paste your close up tube and hit delete. Select none. Change blend mode of tube layer to luminance. Drop shadow your ribbon frame.

Copy and paste Gift 2, resize 65% & drop shadow. Position over the stem of your branches.

Copy and paste Mixed beads, resize 75% & drop shadow. Drag this layer just above your background layer and position top left hand side. Layer duplicate and position on the right side. 

Copy and paste your tube & drop shadow. Position just above your pink tree. 

Copy and paste Ribbon 1, resize 75% & drop shadow. Position bottom right hand side. Layer duplicate & mirror. 

Copy and paste Word art, image rotate left 30 and add the same gradient glow and drop shadow as your mask layer. Position top left hand side. 

X out white background, merge visible.
Open white background, resize to your liking (I used 500x500).
