 Feel free to use my tutorial as a guide and
have fun giving it your own spin.

This tutorial assumes you have a working knowledge of PSP.

Needed Supplies & Filters :

Tube of Choice .. I am using the work of Suzanne Woolcott which you must have a license to use. Please do not use her work without purchasing through her site here.

Scrap Kit of Choice .. I have used a gorgeous PTU kit from Cora called Chilly & Willy which be purchased here.

Word Art of Choice .. I have used a great word art from Lori, which is available on her blog here.

Mask of Choice .. I have used Vix's vix_Mask139  which can be downloaded from her blog here

Font of Choice .. I am using Snowblind.

Filters of Choice .. Vanderlee/Snowflakes 

Let's get started !

Open your mask in PSP. New image 600x600 and floofill with white. New raster layer, select all, copy and paste into selection Paper 5. New mask layer from image, Vix_Mask139, invert mask data unchecked, and merge group. Layer duplicate and flip.

Copy and paste Frame 01 & resize 90%. Using your selection tool, select an area similar to this. 

Copy and paste Paper 7 below your frame layer, selections invert and hit delete. Select none.

Copy and paste your tube below frame layer in right side window. Resize if necessary. Copy and paste Tree on the left side, resize 85%. Merge down both tube layers and the background layer.  Select all, float/defloat.

Layer duplicate twice and rename your layers Snow 1-2-3. Select all/float/defloat. On your first snow layer apply the following Vanderlee/Snowflakes.

Apply the same settings to your next snow layer and randomize. Apply again to your last snow layer hitting and randomize again.  Select none. If you decide not to animate your tag, then just skip the duplicate twice and snow steps.

Drop shadow your frame layer. I have used 2/2/40/4 throughout.

Copy and paste Snow, resize 75% & mirror. Position along the bottom of your frame layer & drop shadow.

Copy and paste Penguin 01, resize 75%  & drop shadow. Position bottom left hand corner of your frame. 

Copy and paste Ornament 2, resize 35% & drop shadow. Position top left hand corner of your frame. Copy and paste Ribbon 1, resize 35% & drop shadow. Position holding ur ornament. 

Copy and paste your selected word art in the left hand side window. Resize so it fits nicely. 

At this point if you need to, resize your tag. I have used 525x450. Add your copyright and name. I have used Snowblind size 72 color #6f899a with a white gradient glow size 3 fat and then drop shadow.

If you are choosing not to animate, then you can save your tag.

To animate, close off Snow Layer 2 & 3 (the lil eye icon in your layer palette), Edit/Copy Merged and paste as new animation in Animation Shop. Close off Snow Layer 1 and open Snow Layer 2, Edit/Copy Merged and paste after current frame in AS. Close off Snow Layer 2 and open Snow Layer 3, Edit/Copy Merged and paste after current frame in AS.

In animation shop, select all, frame properties 25. Save as a gif. 

Save and you are done.
