For this tutorial you will need:

Tube or Image of choice
Font of choice (I used KolkerBrush)
Mask of choice
Eye Candy 3.1 - Glass
ScrapKit *Gothic Butterfly* by Kat of KatNKDA Digital Art & Scraps.
You can purchase it HERE.

I am using the artwork of Vinegar, you can find her licensed art at MPT.

Let's get started:

Open a new image 500x500 and background set to white. Copy & paste Paper06 as a new layer. Open mask of choice, Layers/New Mask Layer/From Image and find the mask in the drop down list. Delete mask layer, and merge group.

Copy & paste Element27 as a new layer. Copy & paste your tube or image of choice and move under the frame layer. Copy & paste paper02 as a new layer and move under the tube/image layer. Using your Magic Wand, click inside the frame, Selections/Modify/Expand by 8 and hit Delete on your tube/image layer and your paper layer. Add drop shadow to frame and tube.

Copy & paste Element37 as a new layer and move to the upper right side of the frame and move under the paper layer.

Add your text and add a drop shadow. My settings are: V/2, H/4, Opacity/40, Blur/5. Effects/EC 3.1/Change settings to: Bevel Width/10, Bevel Shape/Mesa, Raw Spacing/20, Raw Thickness/10, Opacity/50, Refraction/2, Color/#FFFFFF, Highlight Brightness & Sharpness/100, Direction/127, Inclination/39.

Add any additional flowers, bows, ribbons, butterflies, or elements of your choice.

Crop or resize to your liking. Add your copyright info, and watermark, and save as a jpg, png, or gif file.

That's it.. all done!
