Here we go!
Open new image, 500x500, floodfill background with white.
Open wreath, copy and paste as a new layer, resize to your liking. Using magic wand, select inside of frame, expand by 6, add new raster layer, copy and paste paper 11, move underneath frame layer.
Copy and paste paper 3 as new bottom layer, apply mask, you may need to resize.
Open your tube or image of choice - Copy and paste, you may need to resize, duplicate and move one layer on top of frame, erase all hanging over parts.
Copy and paste all of the elements that you want to use. You'll have to resize and rotate. I added more branches underneath frame, the reindeer, & gem stars.
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,flood fill with paper 3 as background fill and white as foreground fill, 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!!
