This tutorial assumes a basic working knowledge of PSP and AS.

Scrap kit is Black Swan by Rissa's Designs and you can get it HERE.

Supplies are HERE.
The woman image is copyright to Ray Leaning and you can purchase it at PTE HERE
The following plugins are needed for this tutorial:
Eye Candy 5 - Nature and you can get that HERE.
Mura's Seamless - Emboss at Alpha and you can get that HERE.

Install your plugins before beginning
Put the mask in your masks folder
Put the silver in your patterns file
Open your font and minimize to the task bar
Open AS and minimize for now
In PSP, open a new transparent image 550 x 550
Flood fill with white
Open paper 2, resize to 550 x 550, copy and minimize for now
Paste as new layer
Load your mask and then merge group
Open frame six, resize to 400 width, copy and close
Paste as new layer
With your magic wand, click inside the frame
Selections, modify, expand, 30
New raster layer
Maximize paper 2 again, copy and close
Paste into selection
Deselect
Move this below the frame layer
Open Heart Squiggles, copy and close
Paste as new layer and move to the top left - you might resize a bit too :)
I erased the squiggles on the right also
I put the bow, the key and little gift box on the right, but you can use other elements if you wish
All had to be resized
If you're going to animate, include the candle too!
Open your Ray Leaning tube, copy and close
Click on your frame layer to activate it
Paste as new layer and resize her to about 80%
Duplicate this layer and move it below the frame layer
Click on the top lady layer, and with your eraser tool, remove those parts of her that overlap the frame
Click on the bottom lady layer, and erase any parts of her below the frame
Add your copyright info and license number for the Ray Leaning tube
For text, I used Caramel Crunch (in your supplies), black over the silver pattern, stroke at 2
Give it a small drop shadow
Then Mura's Seamless - Emboss at Alpha, default setting except change emboss to 90
You are done at this point if you are not animating the candle
Duplicate the candle layer twice so you have three
On the top candle layer, with your freehand selection tool, outline the flame on the candle
Effects, plugins, Eye Candy 5000, Nature - Fire:

Go to the 2nd candle layer, and do again, but click random seed
Go to the bottom candle layer, and do again, but click random seed
Close the eye on the middle and bottom candle layers
Click on the top candle layer to activate it
Edit, copy special, copy merged (in some versions just copy merged)
Go to AS and right click to paste as new layer
Back to PSP, close the eye on the top candle layer, and open the eye on the middle candle layer
Click on that middle layer to activate it
Edit, copy special, copy merged
To to AS and paste after current frame
Back to PSP and do the same for the bottom candle layer
Back to AS and paste after current frame
Save as a gif file and you're all done!

Enjoy your new tag!
