Right click on the paper's layer palette and
promote background layer.

the paper Merge/ merge group.

#5. Open element (41).png C & P over to

bottom of the layer palette and fill with white.

resize 25% duplicate and resize the duplicate 80%
Duplicate both sizes again...placement below.
Open the tube your going to use... resize
#7. Open element (104) (snowman) resize
40% put it in the frame.
All elements have V=0 H=5 opacity 60% blur
10.00 color black.
the only place i changed the opacity was on the
pink snowflakes.. brought the opacity down to 35%
#8. Open element (115).png (sign) resize
60% put what text you want on the sign.
Open element (27).png (pink tree) resize 80%
position it on the right above the splatters below the tube.
Don't forget your 3D drop shadow. Also the
tube's copyright info .
After you have tweaked the positions of all
your elements.. You can resize if you'd like..
Merge all the layers...Right click on the top
of the image and COPY MERGED..
#8. Open your animation shop.. and right click
on it's desktop and paste as a new animation.
Open the snow animation that was in the
supplies zip... select all of it's frames (27 frames)
duplicate the one frame of your new animation
till you have 27 frames also.. select all the frames..
Click hold and drag F: 1 of the snow animation
over to F: 1 of your new animation. You might have to do this step a few
times.. to get it right
I ended up putting the snow animation on my tag
twice , one under the other one.. so that the snow was on all of the image.
You can always UNDO if it don't look right to
you... then save as a GIF.
always check your animation to see if it looks
right to you...
