This tutorial assumes a basic working knowledge of PSP.

Scrap kit is by DnScraps called Santa Girl and is available at Hania's Design store HERE
The lady Santa is copyright to Alfadesire and is also available at Hania's Design store HERE
You'll need the plugin Eye Candy 4000 - Gradient Glow and you can get that HERE
The mask is FTU from Moonbeams & Spiderwebs, available on her blog HERE It's mask 65


Install your plugin before beginning
Put the mask in your PSP Masks folder
Open a new transparent image, 600 x 600
Open paper 5, resize to 600 x 600, copy, close and paste as new layer
Load your mask with source luminance, fit to canvas and hide all mask checked
Merge group
I downsized my mask layer a bit and moved it slightly to the right
Adjust, blur, gaussian blur, 8
Open frame, resize to 440 width, copy, close and paste as new layer
Move it up a bit
Open the tree, resize to 365 width, copy, close and paste as new layer
Move to the left side of the frame and up a bit
Open Santa, flip horizontal (mirror), resize to 250 width, copy, close and paste as new layer
I'll stop saying copy, close and paste as new layer - you know to do that :)
Move to the left side of the tag and down a bit
Open canes, resize to 225 width and move to the right side of the frame
Open the drum, resize to 220 width and move to the right side of the frame, below the candy canes
Open the rocking horse, resize to 250 width and move to the left side, overlapping Santa
Open gift 2, resize to 200 width, and move down and to the left, overlapping the rockers on the rockinghorse
Open the top, resize to 110 width, and move to the bottom left
Open the elf, resize to 250 width and move to the bottom and left a bit
Open your Alfadesire tube, choose the layers you want and resize to 600 height
Paste as new layer and move her to the right just a bit
Open magic ball, resize to 90 width and move to the bottom right
Open the cat, resize to 180 width and move to the bottom, just left of the snow globe
Go through your layers and add drop shadows to your elements
I used 0, 3, 35, 6, black
If you want to resize, do that now before adding any text
Add the copyright info and license number for the Alfadesire tube
Convert to raster
Effects, plugins, Eye Candy 4000, Gradient Glow:
On the color tab choose white
On the basic tab, 8, 25, 100, draw box checked
Reduce the opacity of this layer to 60%
For my text I used Annabelle JF, #c50f1c and gave it the same gradient glow as the CR
Merge visible and save as a png file
Thanks for trying my tut!
