Supplies Needed:
Tube: I'm using one by Vi Nina found at S&Co
Template: Candy Kisses2 by Flaminsal found here
Scrap Kit: Tis The Season by Scraps Dimensions found here
(I was informed that the kit is no longer available so you can get it here)
Plugin: Xero – Porcelain (optional)
Plugin: Filters Unlimited 2 – Special Effects Dark Blur and Shiver (optional)
Plugin: MuRa’s Meister – Wallpaper (rotate) Optional
Plugins: Eye Candy 4000 – Gradient Glow (optional)
My Supplies: Word art, mask layer and backgrounds (optional) found here

Open the template, duplicate and close the original. Open the background layer at the bottom.

Select Large Circle, go to Selections - Select All - Float - Defloat.
Copy and paste a paper of choice above the selected layer. Position to your liking. Go to Selections - Invert and hit delete on the keyboard. Delete the template layer. Apply a drop shadow.

Repeat the above steps for the remaining template layers. If you like you can use the backgrounds that I shared with my supplies for the long rectangles.

Select the background for the circle in the lower left hand side, go to Selections - Select All - Float - Defloat. Copy and paste the tube as a new layer above the background. Position to your liking. Go to Selections - Invert and hit delete on the keyboard. Do the same thing for the circle in the upper right hand side, you may want to mirror the tube.  Select one of the tubes and apply Xero - Porcelain using the default settings, do the same for the remaining tube. You can use any plugin you like for here if you prefer that instead.

Copy and paste the tube as a new layer above the large circle in the center. Position to your liking. Go to Plugins – MuRa’s Meister – Wallpaper (rotate), I used these setting:
Random
Wraparound
Normal
Number:20
Select the background for the large circle in the center, go to Selections - Select All - Float - Defloat. Select the wallpaper layer, go to Selections – Invert and hit delete on the keyboard. Go to Plugins – Filters Unlimited – Special Effects – Blur Darkness, using the default settings. Using the same Plugin apply Shiver, you can find this in the Special Effects as well.

Open Candy Cane1, resize by 20 percent. Copy and paste as a new layer. Place in the upper left hand side on the edge of the large circle. Apply a drop shadow. Duplicate and mirror, place in the lower right hand side on the edge of the large circle.

Open Holly2, resize by 15 percent. Copy and paste as a new layer. Position behind the circle layers on the left hand side. Apply a drop shadow.

Open Ribbon04, resize by 60 percent, mirror. Copy and paste as a new layer. Position on the right hand side behind the small circle layer. Apply a drop shadow. Duplicate and flip, do the same thing for the left hand side.

Open snowflake1, resize by 20 percent. Copy and paste as a new layer. Position to your liking, I placed mine near the candy canes. Apply a drop shadow. You can add as many as you like.

Open the mask layer included in my supplies. Copy and paste as new layer. Move this to the layer right above the background layer.

Open word art included in my supplies, copy and paste as a new layer. Position above the dotted line on the left hand side. Duplicate and do the same for the dotted line on the right.

Add any copyrights and your name. Crop, resize if desired. Save as a PNG (close background first).
