    The Night Before Christmas
    PSP - I have X but any version will work
    Animation Shop
    SUPPLIES which include the scrap kit by Melissa ( shared with permission as per her ToU included in the files )
    Also included is the snow fall animation made by me - Please do not include with any other supplies without my permission.
    Tube of your choice, I have used the work of Elias Chatzoudis available on Licence from MPT - in order to use this image you must visit them to purchase the appropriate tube on licence
    OK Lets start with a canvas - 550 x 550 , Floodfill with white
    Take the green *Night before xmas* frame and paste as a new layer, centre in the canvas.
    Grab your magic wand, click inside the centre of the circle - Modify > expand > 8 pixels.
    Now grab one of the papers, and paste as a new layer, Selections > Invert - hit delete on the keyboard. Drag the paper down underneath the frame on the layers palette and merge visible .
    Take one of the flowery doily type elements and paste onto the tag to your liking. And merge visible again.
    Now grab the Triple Frame and paste as a New Layer.- Resize if needed ( I did mine at 90% )
    Magic wand ( set to Add/shift Tolerance 18, feather 0 ) and click inside each of the 3 frames, Modify > Expand > 5 pixels.
    Choose a different paper and paste as a New Layer, then Selections > Invert, and then hit delete on your keyboard, Select None, then drag the paper layer beneath the frames.
    Magic wand, and select inside your centre frame, Modify> Expand by 2 pixels.
    Paste your tube in and arrange to your liking, before Selection > Invert ( then delete on the keyboard)
    Repeat this for one of the smaller side frames, then a third time for the last frame.
    Once you are happy with it, Merge the 3 tube layers together and add a gentle drop shadow ( I used Vertical and horizontal set at1, and a blur of 2 )
    Add all your Copyrights and credits, then Merge all the layers together.
    Grab on of the buttons ( or a ribbon ) of your choice, and paste as a new layer resizing and positioning to your liking so they *hold* the frames to the tag.
    Paste the snow as a new layer, and use your deform tool to drag it out to fit the size of your tag. Add a drop shadow of your liking.
    In a font of your choice, put your name onto the snow drift.
    Merge All Layers together.
    Copy and then into AS and Paste as a New Animation.
    Duplicate til you have a total of 4 frames.
    Open the snow fall animation I provided, and Edit > Select All > Edit > Copy
    Activate the tag, and Edit > Select All > Edit > Propagate Paste > Edit > Paste INTO selected frame.
    Paste the snow onto the tag and then Animation > Frame Properties and change the number to
    30 before naming and Save as a GIF file :0)
