This tutorial is borne from my own manipulated lil' mind.
Any similarity to any other tutorial(s) is purely coincidental.
This tutorial was written for those who have a working
knowledge of PSP and was written using PSP X2,
tho' any version should work.

Let's do this! =)
Open a new canvas 615 X 615 px.
Copy & paste paper11. Apply the mask & merge group.
Resize the mask 110%.
Next, add frame6.
With your magic wand, click inside the frame.
Modify- Expand by 35. Invert.
Copy & paste paper6, resized 70%.
Hit delete & select none.
Move the paper below the frame in layers palette.
Add a drop shadow to the frame: 0 0 50 5, black
Now add frame7. Resize 60%. Rotate 8 left & place to the left
of the other frame. With your magic wand, click inside both squares.
Modify- Expand by 4. Invert. Copy & paste paper3, resized 70%.
Hit delete. Keep selected & add your tube to both squares,
hitting delete on both. Select none & crop to canvas.
Erase the excess from both tubes in the squares of the frame.
Merge one down onto the other.
Drop the opacity down to 75%.
Move this & the paper below the frame in layers palette.
Then add a drop shadow to the frame.
Add your main tube. Resize as needed.
Apply Xero: Radiance at these settings:
Add a drop shadow to your tube: -2 2 40 4, black.
Now we'll add some elements.
For each one I added, I sharpened & added a drop shadow to,
unless specified otherwise.
paint2- 70%. Place at the top of the frame.
Move to just above the mask in layers palette.
No drop shadow.
dots- 50%. Position over by the 2nd frame.
Duplicate. Mirror & flip. Move this one below your main tube
in layers palette.
flower3- 70%. Place in top corner of 2nd frame.
ribbon2- 65%. Place around the bottom of frame 2.
hearts2- 60%. Move to the bottom left of frame 2
with the ribbon. Move below the ribbon in layers palette.
* Optional- you can erase a bit of the ribbon like on my example, here:
cupcake- 55% Move to the right of the tag.
envelope- 40% Rotate 30 left. Place in front of the cupcake.
candy hearts- Use your deform tool to rotate them around.
duplicate each & create another cluster by the cupcake.
wordart2- 60% Use your lasso to draw a selection around the word 'dotty'.
Promote this selection to a new layer & on the bottom layer hit delete.
Select none. On the bottom 'for you' word layer,
add your drop shadow. On the 'dotty' layer, add a gradient glow:
Add any other elements if you prefer.
Crop & resize to your own liking.
Now add your proper copyrights & watermarks.
Next, add your name. Rotate 12 left.
Add a gradient glow at these settings:
Duplicate this layer & on the bottom one,
add the same gradient glow, using this colour: #fed1d2
Add a bit of noise to this layer:
Uniform/ Monochrome/ 45%.
Then add your drop shadow to this layer.
Finally, merge visible & save as a PNG & enjoy.=)
I hope you have fun trying this tutorial.
