“Cherry Blossom” is a PTU tagger size scrap kit created by Jen of C. C. Creationz and can be purchased at TKO Scraps. You can visit her blog here.
Thank you Jen for such a beautiful kit!

This tutorial was written assuming you have a working knowledge of PSP.

~♥~ Let’s get started ~♥~

Open up a 700 X 700 blank canvas.
Flood fill white.

Copy and paste Frame as a new layer.
Resize 40%
Duplicate twice for a total of 3 frames.
Highlight the top frame in your layers pallet and free rotate left 5 degrees.
Highlight the bottom frame and free rotate right 5 degrees.
Highlight the middle frame and free rotate 90 degrees.
Move the frame into position…see my tag for reference.

Highlight the frame on the left.
Click inside of it with your Magic Wand.
Selections/Modify/Expand by 6.
New Raster layer below the frame.
Copy and paste a paper of choice Into Selection.
Copy and paste a tube below the frame.
Tap the delete key.
Close out the white background and middle and right frame layers.
Merge Visible.
Reopen all other layers.

Duplicate the above step with the 2 remaining frames using a different tube in each.

Add your embellishments. I used:
Flower Branch: Flip/Resize 80% Duplicate/Mirror
Round Lantern: Resize 40%
Flowers and Ribbons: Resize 40%
Butterfly & Butterfly 2: Resize 25% and 80% Free rotate 25 degrees

Highlight your white background.
New Raster layer.
Select All.
Copy and paste a paper of choice Into Selection.
Apply the mask.
Merge Group.

Add your copyrights.

Add your name.
Give it a slight inner bevel:

Resize all layers 80%.
