Have fun!!

* Scrapkit Classic beauty from Aussie scraps. It's a payed kit and you can buy it here under aussie scraps designs.
* Tube of choice, I used a tube from PinUpToons , I bought it from CILM, don't use these tubes without a license!
*Mask sg_Starlight-edge from Sandie, you can find her wonderful masks here
* Wordart by elegant wordart here or use your own wordart
* Some brushes for fun
* Eye candy 4000, gradient glow (optional)

1 Open a new image 600 by 600, I always use a big image so you have some room to move with your tubes etc, you can always crop later.
2 Floodfill this layer with white
3 Copy and paste frame5 from your kit as a new layer.
4 Resize with 90% all layers UNchecked.
5 Move it to the top of your image
6 Add a dropshadow, I used these settings:

Horizontal 2
Vertical 2
Opacity 55
Blur 10
Color black, shadow on new layer Unchecked

7 Make sure you are on the white backgroundlayer, Layers/New raster layer
8 Open one of the papers from the scrapkit, I used BG2 and put it in the foreground of your material palette.
9 Floodfill the layer with the paper, angle 0, schale 100
10 Layers/Load/Save mask/Load mask from disk, find sg_Starlight-edge with these settings:

Source luminance, checked
Fit to canvas, checked
Invert transparency, checked
Hide all mask, checked

11 Layers merge group.
12 Open Floral bouquet, Edit/Copy, Edit paste as a new layer.
13 Move this to the right side of your frame, see my example for guidance.
14 Layers/Duplicate twice
15 Resize one layer with 50%, all layers UNchecked.
16 Image mirror
17 Resize the other one with 65%
18 Place them around the bottom of your frame. I duplicated the 50% one a few times and flipped and mirrored them a bit. Just make a flower border.
19 Give them the same dropshadow
20 Open your tube, copy and paste to your tag and place to your liking, my tube could sit on the flowers so I thought that was a cool idea LOL, make sure she is your toplayer.
21 Give same dropshadow or dropshadow of choice if you like stronger ones on the tubes.
22 Open the wordart you want to use, resize it and paste it into your frame.
23 Layers/Arrange/Move down
24 I added some starbrushes I had to the frame, you can use some too if you like.
25 Open frame3 in psp.
26 Resize with 40%, all layers CHECKED
27 Put another paper in your foreground of your layers palette, I used BG4
28 Click with your magic wand inside the frame with these settings:

RGB Value
toleranc 0
contiguous checked
feather 0, Anti alias checked
outside checked.

29 Selections/Modify/Expand by 5
30 Layers/New raster layer
32 Floodfill his layer with your paper you have in your foreground. I had my angle 0, scale 40
33 Layers arrange move down
34 Layers merge visible
35 Edit copy/Edit/Paste as a new layer on your tag.
36 Use your pick tool to rotate it a bit.
37 I moved it so it was between my flower border, yours can look a bit different but you can always take the single flowers from the kit and put them around the tag.
38 Give it the same dropshadow
39 Get your text tool with a font you like and put your name to the tag, move it where you want it and rotate it with your picktool
40 Layers/Convert to a rasterlayer.
41 Add some dropshadow of choice, or a bevel if you like that. I used eyecandy 4000 gradient glow to make it more stand out but that is up to you.
42 Image resize 80%, all layers CHECKED
43 Add your watermark and necessary copyright.
44 Save the tag as a jpeg.

That's it!!! I hope you had fun making this tutorial.
