Resize paper 6 to 23%, apply your mask, delete and merge group, duplicate twice and merge both down.
Resize if needed for your tag later.
Resize element 08 to 15%, apply Mura Meister Copies-Encircle with the first number on 12, paste on your mask, resizing the mask to fit better with this.
I added a white drop shadow to this also.
Resize element 68 to 20%, paste below the snowflake layer you just pasted, change the blend mode to hard light, duplicate twice and move one on each side of the center one, lower the opacity on these to 77%.
Merge these three together once happy with the way they look.

Paste your tube below this snow layer to help hide the straight line of the legs.
Resize your other tube to 75%, paste on the right on the snow.

If you want to change the color, select all, float, defloat, new raster layer and fill with a color of choice, then add a fat white gradient glow or add a new layer, expand by 2, add white, move below and select none.
