Here we go!
Open new image, 500x500, floodfill background with white.
Open frame 3, copy and paste as a new layer, rotate 90 degrees, resize to your liking, erase the ribbon. Using magic wand, select inside of frame, expand by 2, add new raster layer, copy and paste paper 15, move underneath frame layer. For snow, use Xenofex, 2, 100, 9, 8, 8, 99, rotation 45, keep original image. Duplicate frame layer and change the blend mode on the top layer to modify.
Open tree, copy and paste as a new layer, resize to your liking, repeat two additional times.
Open moon, copy and paste as a new layer, resize to your liking.
Open clock, copy and paste as a new layer, right under the trees, lower opacity.
Open your tube or image of choice - Copy and paste, you may need to resize.
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 text,convert to raster layer. To make it stand out, use could use either Eye Candy Gradient Glow or duplicate the layer, convert bottom layer to raster, select all, use magic wand to select text, expand by 2, floodfill with colour of choice.
Go back through to sharpen and add a drop shadow to your layers.
Add your copyright as the finishing touch.
Save your tag in your favorite format and you are done!!
