Scrapkit "Choco-Pink" by Me from my Blog- HERE

mask by me-in supplies

Font i used Joyful Julianna - any handwriting font will work

ok off we go!!

Open a new canvas 600 x 600 and flood fill with white

Get paper4 from the kit resize to 80% of original

Open my mask and minimise
Copy and paste the paper as a new layer

Go to Layers-new mask layer-image and find my mask

invert mask is UN-checked

apply mask

go to your layer palette and delete the mask layer,

answer yes to the pop up

layer palette-ungroup layers.
On the mask layer go to layer palette > duplicate
duplicate your mask layer.
Hide your white background layer
layers > layers >merge >merge Visible
Un hide white background. 

copy and paste my stitched ringlet as a new layer
get my heart frame resize to 70% of original and paste as a new layer.
go to your layer palete and duplicate your frame layer,
on the duplicate go to image > free rotate > rotate 15 right
stay on the duplicate and go to layer palette and duplicate
on the new duplicate go to image > free rotate > rotate right 15
hide all your layers apart from the 3 heart frames, layers > merge > merge visible
un hide all
now move your frames where you want them on your canvas by using your pick/deform tool.
get your ribbon wrap from your kit -
paste it as a new layer over your frames lower the opacity on the ribbon layer slightly so you can see the frames through it.
now go to your selections tool and trace around the edge of the frame and around your ribbon ends
with the ribbon layer active > hit delete
selections > select none
do the same for the opposite side.

now put the opacity of your ribbon back to 100% and go to your tool pallette and select your
lighten/darken tool (one of my fave tools)

hold your right button down and sweep it across the edge of the ribbon a couple of times
this will darken your edge
now move it slightly in and sweep across your ribbon this time holding the other mouse button down
this will add a lightened edge.
Put together this help give the illusion of depth to your frame and ribbon wrap.
you can of course leave this bit out.
 Now open up the flowers from the kit.
resize them to your liking and then add them as new layers.
I resized mine to 60% and 50% and then fine tuned the resize by using my deform/pick tool
Add a drop shadow to each flower.

Now get your vellum from the kit and resize it to 60%
copy and paste my text from supplies and place it ontop of the vellum.
or you could add some text of your own.
Add another flower as a fixer of the vellum then add your tube.
Add your name and your Šinfo and licence# and your all done.
save as a jpg or png.
