This tutorial assumes a basic working knowledge of PSP. I use X16 but any version will do.
Scrap kit is PTU by me, Tagcatz Design, called Chinese New Year and is available at Scraps & Company HERE
The lovely lady is from Lysisange, also at S&CO HERE
The mask is FTU from Moonbeams & Spiderwebs and you can get it on her blog HERE It is mask 69
You'll need the plugin Eye Candy 4000, Gradient Glow and you can get that HERE


Install your plugin before beginning
Put the mask in your PSP Masks folder
Open a new transparent image 600 x 600
We'll resize later if you like
Open paper 11, resize to 600 x 600, copy, close and paste as new layer
(I'm not going to keep repeating copy, close and paste as new layer since I know that you know that!)
Merge group
Adjust, blur, gaussian blur, 5
Duplicate this layer
With your pick tool, pull the top down so the layer is about this position:

Open element 33 and paste as new layer
Open element 37, resize to 245 width and move to the top right
Duplicate this layer, flip horizontal, and move to the left side down about half way
Open element 2, resize to 250 width and move up so it overlaps the first flower
Open element 76, resize to 275 width and move up over the flower
Open element 80, resize to 325 width and move up over the first fireworks and part of the flowers
Activate you envelopes layer
Open element 35 and paste as new layer
Change your pick tool to perspective mode
From the bottom right node, pull out to a shape like this:

Switch your pick tool back to scale mode
Pull the nodes - fiddle a bit lol - to get it to about 160 width and looking flat, and then move to the bottom right
Open element 19, resize to 100 width and sit on top of the coins
Open element 83, resize to 255 width and move down so the leaf on the right is overlapping the gift bag
Open element 14, flip vertical, then rotate left 90, resize to 500 height and move to the left side
Open element 49, flip horizontal, resize to 500 height and move to the left side
Open element 36, resize to 150 width, move down and to the left
Open element 5, resize to 150 width, move down in front of the vase
Open element 4, resize to 100 width, move down and to the left side in front of the vase and overlapping the other gift
Open your Lysisange tube and choose the layers you want - then resize to 500 height
Paste her as new layer
Open element 29, resize to 500 width and move down to the bottom of the girl's legs
Open element 27, resize to 250 width and move down on top of the bamboo
I selected part of the ribbon on the left end and removed it
Open element 7, flip horizontal, resize to 280 width and move to the bottom and a bit left
Note: 2017 is year of the Rooster, 2018 is year of the Dog - so if you use the kit next year, just use a dog instead of the rooster :)
Go through your layers and add drop shadows to your elements
I used 0, 3, 30, 8, black
If you want to resize your tag, do that now before adding any text
Add the copyright info and license number for the Lysisange tube
