I used the lovely kit Wintersong from Designs by Stina
which is available HERE
I aslo used the wonderful artwork of Gene Gonzales

In order to use the image in this tutorial you MUST purchase it from CILM.

Additional Supplies Needed:
Mask from Gabbe available HERE
and a star tube if you want to animate

Open a new image 650 x 650
Flood Fill with white
Selections select all, add a new layer
Open paper of choice, I used DBS_Paper02, paste into selection
Select none
Layers - new mask layer - from image
I used gabeemask6, check invert mask data, apply and then merge group

Open DBS_Tree02, resize 70%, paste as a new layer
Add other elements of your choice, resizing as needed and don't forget to add drop shadows.
I used DBS_Gifts02 and DBS_Dove02

Add your tube of choice and move layer below the gifts layer and arrange as needed

Merge all and resize, then add copyright info and watermark

Add your text and merge all. Save it as is if you don't want to animate

To animate:

Duplicate layer twice so you have 3 layers
Using a star tube dot stars around on each layer where you want the twinkle to be
Use different sizes to add some variety.
Save the tag and open in Animation shop, select all frame and change the frame speed to about 30 view and if you are happy save it.
