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

Scrap kit is by DnScraps called Holly Belle and is available at Hania's Design Store HERE
The little doll is also by DnScraps and is available HERE
You'll need the plugin Vanderlee - Snowflakes and you can get that HERE
The mask is FTU from Moonbeams & Spiderwebs, available on her blog HERE It's mask 66


Install your plugin before beginning
Put the mask in your PSP Masks folder
Open a new transparent image, 600 x 600 and flood fill with white
Open paper 5, resize to 600 x 600, copy, close and paste as new layer
Load your mask and then merge group
Open glitters, resize to 550 width and move to the bottom of the tag
Open embellement, resize to 500 width and move so it's just above the glitters, overlapping it a bit
Open doubleframe2, resize to 380 width and move to the top left
Open cutebear, resize to 120 width and move to the bottom left of the frame
Open bag, resize to 210 width and move down to the bottom of the frame, overlapping the bear a bit
Open tree, resize to 265 width and move to the right side of the frame
Open bearlights, resize to 280 width and move to the bottom right
Open your Holly Belle tube, resize to 220 width and paste as new layer
Open giftcat (it's actually a dog lol), resize to 295 width and move to the bottom
Go through your layers and add drop shadows to your elements
I used 0, 3, 30, 6, black
Add the copyright info for the DnScraps tube
For my text, I used Euphorigenic, #a81b19 and gave it a small drop shadow
Click on your group layer to activate it
New raster layer - 3 times so you have three blank layers
Click the top blank layer to activate it
Effects, plugins, Vanderlee, snowflakes:

Click the middle blank layer to activate it
Repeat the plugin, but change the random seed to anything else
Click the bottom blank layer to activate it
Repeat the plugin, but change the random seed to a 3rd setting different from the first two
Close the eye on the middle and bottom snow layers
Click the top snow layer to activate it
Edit, copy special, copy merged
Go to AS and right click to paste as new animation
Back to PSP
Close the eye on the top snow layer
Open the eye on the middle snow layer and click the layer to activate it
Edit, copy special, copy merged
Go to AS and Edit, paste after current frame
Back to PSP
Close the eye on the middle snow layer
Open the eye on the bottom snow layer and click the layer to activate it
Edit, copy special, copy merged
Go to AS and Edit, paste after current frame
If you wish to resize, Edit, select all
Animation, resize animation and choose the size you want
Save as a gif file
Note: You can use this plugin to do rain on your tags also - instead of basic snow, use basic icy blue and once you have it on your layer, adjust blur usually to about 5
