Tube or image of choice
Scrapkit: "Bella" which is part of "The Saga" by Cora's Creations and can be purchased here.
Mask(s): Vix Mask 403, you can find it here.

Here we go!
Open a new image, 500x500 (we can resize later).
Open ribbon heart 2 - Copy, paste as a new layer, resize.
Open paper 3 - Select inside of bottom frame with magic wand, expand by 5, add new layer, floodfill with paper 3, select none, move underneath frame layer.
Open lace heart - copy, paste as a new layer, move underneath background layer, resize.
Open paper 08 - resize 90%, copy and paste as a new layer, moving to the bottom and apply mask.
Open tube or image of choice - Copy, paste tube as new layer, make any resizing now, and move under the top frame. For the tube, I duplicated it, blurred with a radius of 3, and changed blend mode to softlight.
Open assortment of elements - Copy, paste each as a new layer, resizing and rotating to your liking.
At this point, I usually resize if I need a smaller image. I also save both the original size and the smaller size images.
Add a new vector layer for your name - (I floodfilled mine with paper 6) To make it stand out, use could use either Eye Candy or duplicate the layer, convert bottom layer to raster, select all, use magic wand to select text, expand by 2, floodfill with white.
Go back through to sharpen and add a drop shadow to your layers. Make sure when you add the shadow to the lace layer that you lighten the amount.
Add your copyright as the finishing touch.
Save your tag in your favorite format and you are done!!
