Thank you Julie for such a spooky kit!

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

~♥~ Let’s get started ~♥~

Open up a transparent 700 X 700 image.
Flood fill white.

Copy and paste Frame 8 as a new layer.
Use your Magic Wand and click inside the frame.
Selections/Modify/Expand by 6.
New Raster Layer below the frame.
Flood fill black.

Apply Mura Meister Cloud:


Copy and paste Element 40 as a new layer.
Position it so that it appears to be growing out of the frame.
See mine for reference.
Give it a heavy drop shadow using a light gray color.
Repeat the drop shadow using black.

Copy and paste Element 50 as a new layer.
Resize 50%.
Move behind the tree.
Give it a heavy drop shadow using a light gray color.

Add your embellishments. I used:

Element 13: Free rotate left 20 degrees. Duplicate/Mirror/Resize 70%
Element 17: Resize 50%

Highlight your white canvas.
New Raster Layer.
Select All.
Copy and paste a paper of choice Into Selection.
Copy and paste Element 37 as a new layer.
Position it in the top right corner.
Merge Down
Merge Down again.
Apply the mask.

I gave mine a slight inner bevel:
