Always remember to duplicate your tube and close original
C/P means copy and paste as a new layer Unless otherwise stated
D/s means Drop Shadow
Remember to sharpen after resizing
Resizing is always smartsize
Elements are added with a D/S unless otherwise stated
And see my finished tag for placement
*Let's Get Started*
Open a new image 650x650 and floodfill with white
Open frame 5 c/p resize by 85% click inside with your magic wand expand by 6 open paper 4 c/p invert/delete move paper below your frame, invert again open snow swirl1 c/p and move between your frame and paper arrange invert/delete/deselect and give your frame a d/s.
Open tube c/p arrange duplicate guassian blur 3.00 and change the blend mode to Soft Light or whatever works best for your tube add d/s to your original tube layer.

I used the following

Snowangel 1 - 60%
Snow - and move to the bottom see my finished tag for placement
Snow swirl 2 - arrange over the tube
Snowflake 1 - 50% duplicate arrange duplicate again then 70% duplicate as many times as you want and scatter them over the tag
Holly Leaves - 50%
Owl 1 - 35% and move behind the tree
Wordart - 65%
