“Valentine‘s Gift” is a FTU tagger size scrap kit created by Cindy of Puddicat Creations and can be downloaded from her blog here.
Please leave a thank you when downloading as it’s a small gesture for hard work given freely.

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 Bread 4 as a new layer.
Copy and paste your tube as a new layer and position to the right of the heart - see my tag for reference.
Move both layers into exact position.
Duplicate the tube layer.
Position it over the heart.
Close out both tube layers - will make the next step easier to see.

Using your Freehand Selection Tool, outline the heart just inside the frame of it.
Reopen the tube layer that’s just above the heart.
Change the Properties to Multiply.
Tap the delete key.
Selections/Modify/Inside Outside Feather:
Both checked
Feather amount: 33
Tap the delete key a few times.
Merge down.

Add your embellishments. I used:
Flowers 1: Resize 85%/Mirror
Flowers 3: Position behind the heart/Duplicate/Flip
Paper Chain Heart 1: Resize 85%
Bear 2: Resize 50%
Bee 1: Resize 25% and 80%/Duplicate/Mirror

Crop your image.

Highlight your white background.
New Raster layer.
Copy and paste Paper 3 Into Selection.
Apply the Mask.
Merge Group.

Add your credits.

Add your name.

Resize all layers 80%
