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 Camilla Drakenborg which you must have a license to use. Please do not use her work without purchasing through CILM here. I am licensed through Artistic Minds Inc. but they are now closed.

Scrap Kit of Choice .. I have used a gorgeous PTU kit from KatNKDA called Starry Tales which can be purchased here.

Mask of Choice .. I have used Vix_Mask363 from Vix which can be downloaded here.

Font of Choice .. I am using Grape Nuts ROB & Waterbrush ROB.

Let's get started !

New image 600x600 and floodfill with white. New raster layer, select all, paste into selection Paper 9. New mask layer from image, Vix_Mask363, invert mask data unchecked, and merge group.

Copy and paste Element 1 & resize 65%. Using your magic wand, select the center portion of both frames, selections modify/expand 5. Copy and paste Paper 11 below your frame layer, resize 65%, selections invert and hit delete. Select none. Do not deselect.

Copy and paste below your frame your tube. Layer duplicate and drag this layer above your frame. On the tube layer below you frame, hit delete. Select none. Select the tube layer above your frame and erase the bottom portion of the tube so it appears to be coming out of your frame. Drop shadow your frame. I have used 2/2/40/4 throughout.

Copy and paste Element 31, resize 60% & drop shadow. Position over the bottom of your frame. Copy and paste Element 30, resize 75% & drop shadow. Position over the leafs.

Copy and paste Element 28, resize 50% & drop shadow. Position on the right hand side. Copy and paste Element 21, resize 65% & drop shadow. Position top right hand corner.

Copy and paste Element 36 above mask your mask layer, resize 65% & drop shadow. Position top left hand side. Layer duplicate mirror.

Copy and paste Element 4, resize 50%, rotate left 90 and drop shadow. Position bottom centre. Copy and paste Element 35, resize 50%, rotate left 45 & drop shadow. Position bottom left hand side, on the corner of your tag.

Copy and paste Element 25, resize 50% & drop shadow. Position in the loop of your hanging ribbon.

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

Add copyright and your name. I have used Waterbrush Rob, Size 48, color
#2f1e24 and a lil noise ..  Add remove noise/gaussian & mono checked/45%. I then added a size 4 gradient glow #cab5ce and then drop shadow.

For the text in the tags, I have used Grape Nuts Rob, Size 22, color #2f1e24.

Save and you are done.
