I am using the beautiful artwork of Keith Garvy. You can purchase his artwork and a license to use it HERE at PTE.
The font I am using is SantasSleighFull
The kit I am using is a PTU kit from Toxic Desirez called Rebel Rider 1, and can be purchased at Scraps With Attitude HERE
Pieces of the kit used in this tutorial are
This tutorial was written using PSPXI, you must have working knowledge of PSP to be able to use this tutorial.
Open a new 600x600 image in PSP and flood fill white
Open Star Background and resize the layer to fit your canvas
Open the tube of your choice. The tube that I am using has 3 different sizes. Open 3 three sizes of the tube. (If your tube does not come in 3 different sizes then you can duplicate your tube and resize each duplicate larger to get the same look)
Open Frame2. Resize to your liking. Move one of each of your tubes to behind a side of the frame. Click on the inside of one of the frames in the Frame2 Layer. Then go to Selections/Modify/Expand 3. Then Selections/Invert. Using your layers pallet click on the tube that is underneath that side of the frame, and the press delete. (This will remove the excess tube image) The go to Selections/Select none. Repeat the italic for the other side of the frame. Place a drop shadow of 3 on the Frame2 layer and a drop shadow of 2 on each of your tubes.
Open Shattered Glass and place in front of Frame2 Layer.
Add any other elements from the kit that you would like and then add your text
