Let’s Start
Open a new canvas 851 x 315 and flood fill with white

Move so the fence on the far left corner of the paper in in view in the left corner

Open Snowballs, copy and paste as a new layer – rename Snowballs
Position along the bottom where it looks best
Add a drop shadow of choice – I used:
V&H: 2 / Opacity: 35 / Blur: 7.92 / Color: Black / Shadow on new layer: Checked
With the shadow layer active
Adjust, Blur, Gaussian Blur – radius set to 4
Repeat the Gaussian Blur again with the same settings
Reduce the opacity to 75
Activate the Snowballs layer – Layers, Merge, Merge Down

Open Trees, copy and paste as a new layer
Move over the right of the canvas
Add the same drop shadow BUT uncheck the shadow on new layer box
sb-02
Open Snowflakes, copy and paste as a new layer – rename Left Snowflakes
Position on the left side if the canvas
Duplicate and Image, Mirror – rename Right Snowflakes
Activate Left Snowflakes
Add the same drop shadow BUT check the shadow on new layer box
With the shadow active, reduce the opacity to 51
Repeat the shadow on Right Snowflakes

Open BubbleBrush, copy and paste as a new layer – rename Bubbles
Position so the bottom of the BubbleBrush is along the base of the tag
Change the blend mode to Screen

Add a new raster layer
Selections, All
Copy and paste paper 2 into the selection
Modify, Contract by 3 pixels and press delete
Selections, None
Adjust, Add/Remove Noise, Add Noise
Gaussian & Monochrome: Checked / Noise: 65%
Add the same drop shadow, with shadow on new layer, still checked
Activate Frame again, repeat the shadow changing the V&H to -2
Layers, Merge, Merge Down so the two shadows are on one layer
Activate the Frame – Layers, Merge, Merge Down
Rename Frame

Activate the Snowballs layer
Copy and paste your tube as a new layer – rename Tube
Position where it looks best, I mirrored mine
Add the same drop shadow BUT uncheck the shadow on new layer AND set the V&H to 2

Activate the Bubble layer
Select your text tool and choose a font – I used phraell
Set your foreground to null, Background to a color of choice
Create as vector and Anti-Alias both checked
Type your text of choice – I wrote ‘Shine Bright’
Position where it looks best and convert to raster
Adjust, Add/Remove Noise, Add Noise
Gaussian & Monochrome: Checked / Noise: 10%
Apply the same drop shadow

Still with your text tool, choose another font if required – I used Malina
Keep your settings the same, changing the background color if needed
Add your name and position where it looks best
Convert to raster
Effects, Eye Candy 6: Text Selection – Snow Drift
Under *Settings Tour – choose On Top: First Flakes, use the default settings
sb-03

Add your artists copyrights, scrap credits and your own taggers watermark as a new layer

All Done 😀

I also made a forum style tag using the same kit and tube. Font used is Angelova Script.
