Font of Choice, I used Close to You

Drop Shadow usually V2 H2 50 black

Open a new image 800 x 800 or one you prefer.

Resize paper 1 to 130%, apply your mask, delete and merge group.

Paste frame 6, click inside with your magic wand expand by 10, paste paper of choice, I used #6, invert, delete, move below the frame, paste your close up, delete, select none.  Duplicate the close up, go to Adjust, Blur, Gaussian blur with the number on 5, change the blend mode to screen, merge down.
Apply the Xero filter-Soft Vignette with these settings
Elliptical, Foreground color
Square dots
2, 1, 1, 255
Then apply the Xero filter-Clarity and do not change any of the numbers.

Paste flower 1, apply Mura Meisters Copies-Encircle with the first number on 14,
move to just above the mask layer, resize larger to 108%, sharpen once.

Duplicate the green frame 6 larger to 127 and move above the flower layer you just made.
Paste branch 1, apply Mura Meisters again, changing the first number to 16, placing on top of the green frame layer you just enlarged, sharpen once.

Resize branch 2 to 95%, paste, apply Mura Meister Copies again, changing the first number to 12, sharpen once.

Resize flower 3 to 95%, place on the bottom right, duplicate, mirror, sharpen both once.

Resize your tube to 90%, mirror, place on the left side of the frame.

Resize the Christmas memories book to 65%, free rotate to the right at 20 degrees, move below the flower layer.

Paste berries 1 below the book layer on the right, duplicate, mirror, adjust.
Paste branch 4 under the berries layer, duplicate a couple of times, mirror and adjust to your liking.

Resize baubles 1 and 2 to 50%, place below the flower layers, duplicate a couple of times or so and move them where you like.

Resize candy cane 1 to 50%, free rotate to the right at 20 degrees, paste below the flower layers also, duplicate, mirror and adjust to the center.
Duplicate the left one and move over by your tube, so you can see some of it, duplicate, mirror and adjust by the book.
Resize lollipop 3 to 50%, free rotate to the right at 20 degrees also, place by the candy cane, erase any of the stick showing below, duplicate, mirror, again erasing any of the stick you do not want showing.

Paste Scatters 1 on the top frame layer, erasing parts out of the center of the frame that you don't want.
Resize the elf to 60%, place on the right side on the top layer.

Add any other elements you would like, make it your own.

Crop your tag to be sure no stray shadows are on the edges of your tag.
Once happy with it all, close off any backgrounds, merge visible.
Resize first, then add your copyrights and name.
That's it
Hope you enjoyed doing my tut.
