Supplies Needed:
Tubes of choice (regular and close-up), I am using one of Ismael Rac found here
Scrap kit Christmas by Bea Creations 
(her site isnt working so you can download the kit here, all copyrights belong to the designer)
Template Christmas Template 004 by Elegantly Wasted
Mask of choice

Open the template, duplicate and close the original. Delete the copyright layer. Resize canvas by 700 x 700.

I used Red #8d0b0b and Green #697a26 for the frames and the gradient for the mask. I also changed the color of the word art and the stars to these two colors. You are welcome to use whatever you prefer though.

Select one of the large circles, go to Selections - Select All - Float - Defloat.

Open a paper of choice, resize if desired. Copy and paste as a new layer above the selected circle. Go to Selections - Invert and hit delete on your keyboard. Apply a drop shadow. Delete the template layer.

Repeat this for all the remaining layers.

Okay, all layers done? Cool! Copy and paste the close up tube as a new layer, make sure this is below the frame on the right. Place inside the frame. Erase any of the tube showing past the frame. Apply a drop shadow. Copy and paste the tube again, this time mirror and place inside the frame on the left, erase anything showing outside the frame. Apply a drop shadow. Change Blend mode to Overlay.

Copy and paste the regular tube as a new layer, place to the left so we don’t cover the word art. Apply a drop shadow.

Open Bow 6 and resize by 15 percent. Copy and paste as a new layer. Place in the upper left hand side of the frame on the left. Apply a drop shadow.

Open Bow 1 and resize by 12 percent. Copy and paste as a new layer. Place on top of the bow we just added. Apply a drop shadow.

Open Candy 4 and resize by 8 percent, copy and paste as a new layer. Place about in the middle of the frame on the right on the right hand side. Apply a drop shadow.

Open Berry and resize by 5 percent. Copy and paste as a new layer. Place overlapping the bottom of the bows. Apply a drop shadow. Duplicate and place on top of the candy cane. Duplicate once more and place on the gift the tube is sitting on at the bottom left hand side.

Open Flower 1 and resize by 8 percent, copy and paste as a new layer. Place at the top of the frame on the right. Position to the left corner. Move this layer below the frame and background. Apply a drop shadow.

Open Flower 2 and resize by 6 percent. Copy and paste as a new layer. Place overlapping the green flower on the frame. Leave this flower above the frame. Apply a drop shadow.

Copy and paste a paper or make a gradient above the white background. Apply the mask to this layer. Delete the mask layer and merge group.

Add any copyrights and your name.

Crop, resize if desired. Save as a PNG.

I hope you have enjoyed using one of my tuts, I would love to see what you have created.
