I've used the lovely PTU artwork of Suzanne Woolcott at Gorjuss.
This is an FTU called Santa’s Coming by Tracy F. Designz.
The mask is WSL_Mask41 and 341, by Wee Scot Lass.
Font used is Refreshment Stand.


Let’s Begin!

Open a new canvas at 800x800 pixels flood filled with white.

Open chimney from kit.
Copy and Paste it as a new layer.

Open gift1 from kit.
Copy and Paste it below the chimney layer.
Resize and arrange it to the left as shown in the tag.

Open tree4 from kit.
Copy and Paste it above the chimney.

Resize and arrange it to the right as shown.

Add your mask by going to Layer>Load/ Save Mask>Load Mask from Disk.
Apply the mask named WSL_Mask341.
Merge the mask group by right clicking the layer of the finished mask, go to Merge>Merge Group.

Repeat the mask steps to apply WSL_Mask41.

I used the font Refreshment Stand. Set it to a size you like and a stroke width of 4.
Foreground color to white and background color to black.
Duplicate the layer and select the second font layer with the font tool.
Set the stroke width to 0.
Merge the 2 font layer and convert to a raster layer.

Drop shadow everything except the mask.
Effects>3D Effects>Drop Shadow, set the drop to 3 vertical, 2 horizontal, 75 opacity, 4 blur.

Merge everything in Layers>Merge>Merge Visible

All Finished!
