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

Scrap kit is Love and Hope by Jaelop Designs and you can get it HERE.
Mask is from Wee Scots Lass, #105 and you can get it HERE.
The fairy image is copyright to Claire Nobles and is available for purchase from PSP Tube Stop HERE
Mura's Seamless Emboss At Alpha, and you can download that HERE.
Install your plugin before beginning
Save the mask to your masks folder
Open AS and minimize for now
Open a new image, 600 x 600
Flood fill with white
Open paper 4, resize to 600 x 600, copy and close
Paste as new layer
Load your mask and then merge group
Lower the opacity of this layer to 30%
Open element 30, resize to 500 height, copy and close
Paste as new layer
Give it a drop shadow - I used 3, 3, 20, 5, black on all the elements
Duplicate this layer, and make the 2nd frame smaller and move to the left, overlapping the first frame
Merge down
With your magic wand click inside both frames
Selections, modify, expand 10
New raster layer
Flood fill with #b80e20 (or a color from your tube if you're not using the same one I did
Effects, texture effects, blinds - width3, opacity 20, color white
Do again, but check horizontal
Select none
Open element 14, resize to 500 height, copy and close
Paste as new layer and move to the right side of the frames
Open your Claire Nobles tube, copy and close
Paste as new layer and resize her down just a bit and move to the right side of the frames
Click on the layer that has the background in the frames
Open element 1 - and place inside the right side frame - you'll need to resize
Duplicate the layer and move to the left - again make it smaller to fit inside the smaller frame
Open element 26, resize to 400 height, copy and close
Paste as new layer and move it so it is over the edge of the two frames
Duplicate this layer so you have 4 of them
Put your drop shadow on the bottom one only
On the top one, with your freehand selection tool, outline the three hearts
Adjust, noise, add/remove noise, 70, uniform and monochrome checked
On the 2nd one, add noise, but change to 60
On the 3rd one, add noise, but change to 50
Select none
I used element 40, word art - resized - but there are several to choose from if you like!
If you're going to resize, do that now before adding any text
Add your copyright info and license number for the Claire Nobles tube
For my text I used Shipping News in the same red color as before
I gave it a small drop shadow of 1, 1, 30, 2, black
Optional: Effects, plugins, Mura's Seamless - Emboss at Alpha - default settings except change emboss to 90
To animate, close the eye on the 2nd and 3rd layers that have the three flowers on them
Click on the top 3 flower layer to activate it

Go to AS and right click to paste as new animation
Back to psp, close the eye on the top 3 flower layer
Open the eye on the 2nd 3 flower layer and click the layer to activate it
