You must have a good knowledge of working with masks.

I am using a free tube from MyPspTubes under free tubes. You will still need to use your MPT License to use the tubes. Please Do Not use without the proper license.

My Happy Easter Scrap Kit which is a PTU kit. you will find the kit
Mask of choice, Font of choice.

"Ready, Let's Go"

Open a new 600x600 blank canvas and floodfill with white.
Copy and paste a paper of choice from the kit, open your mask, go to layers, add mask from image, source window, find your mask in the dropdown menu, source luminance checked, invert unchecked, and click ok. apply mask. merge group on the mask layer.
Duplicate the mask layer and on the original mask layer, go to adjust, blur,
Gaussian blur of 20%, click ok. Hide the white background and merge the two mask layers. unhide the white background. add a slight drop shadow to the mask. (optional).
With your magic wand, click inside the circle on the mask layer, selections, modify,
Expand by 70-76, copy and paste paper of choice, selections invert, hit delete. select none. back on the circle, repeat the same steps as we just did for your tube. drop shadow the tube. move the tube above the paper layer.

Now pick 2 flower bunches from the kit. copy and paste them onto your canvas and place them under your mask layer. position one on top right, duplicate, image flip and place it to the bottom right. On the other flower bunch, place it in the middle of the previous flower bunches. add drop shadows. See my tag as a reference.

Open a frame from the kit and resize it to your liking. with magic wand, click inside the frame, selections modify, expand by 3, copy and paste a paper of choice, selections invert, hit delete. selections none. move the paper below the frame layer. add a drop shadow to the frame. back on the frame, magic wand, selections, modify, expand by 3, copy and paste tube, selections invert, hit delete, select none. add a drop shadow to the tube.
