Always remember to duplicate your tube and close original

D/s means Drop Shadow
Remember to sharpen after resizing
Resizing is always smartsize
Elements are added with a D/S unless otherwise stated

*Let's Get Started*
Open template duplicate close original delete credits, Image Canvas Size 625x625 and floodfill your background with white.

Now time to add the elements
I used the following

Snow Branch : 60% duplicate/mirror
Flower 2 : 45%
Flower 3 : 45%
Candy Cane 2 : 55%
Open Wordart c/p resize as desired select all/float/defloat new layer and floodfill with color #428b9b deselect and erase the words "A Season Of" on your floodfilled layer add noise Uniform/55/Monochrome Checked, On original wordart erase "Memories" now arrange both where you want and add d/s.
Add anymore elements you wish and a dropshadow to each
When your happy with your tag close off your white background layer and merge visable
Add new layer floodfill with the same color you used for the wordart apply mask/merge group resize by 85% duplicate/mirror/flip, then merge both layers together duplicate again mirror merge again and resize by 95% add the same noise you used for the wordart.
