Snowy Ride

I used the cute kit Snow Friends from Crazed's Creations
which is available HERE
I aslo used the wonderful artwork of Molly Harrison.
In order to use the image in this tutorial you MUST purchase it from CILM
Supplies - Scenery Mask and Snow Animation HERE
Font used is palace Script but any pretty script font will work.

Open paper7 in PSP, duplicate and close the original.
Paste Crazeds_frame1_SFT as a new layer.
Paste your tube as a new layer and position as desired.
Duplicate your frame layer and arrange layers so one frame layer is 
above the tube and the other is below the tube.
Select the top frame layer and erase any areas where you 
want the tube outside of the frame.
Add drop shadow to the tube and the bottom frame layer.

Crop excess paper from around the frame
Resize to 450 pixels wide.
Add a new layer and flood fill white, send to bottom.
With the paper layer selected, layers, new mask layer from image
and select Saphiere_GraphicDream_Mask_Castle_13.
Merge the group.
Using the rectangle selection tool draw a selection through the 
widest points of the star just like in screenshot.

Invert selection then delete. Erase any corners 
so the mask layer is totally inside the frame.

Add and arrange any elements of choice.
I used tree_SFT, sign2_SFT and bow3_SFT.
Dont forget to shadow as desired.

Add your text, watermark and copyright information.

To Animate:

To set your animation just like it is in my example above...
Close of all but the white layer and the mask layer,
copy merged and paste into animation shop.
Open the snow animation and duplicate the tag 
so you have the same number of frames (10).
Select the first frame on each animation, select all
then drag the snow animation onto the tag.

Back into PSP, close off the 2 background layers and 
copy merged the rest of the layers and paste into 
animation shop. Duplicate so there are 10 frames.
Select all and drag over onto the frames that already
have the background and snow in place.
Position carefully (undo drag if you mess up).
Save the tag and you are done.

If you prefer you can just copy over the tag complete and
put the snow frames on top of the tag frames.
That will give this result.
