 PTU Christmas Cheer
This tutorial was written by me on December 10, 2013.
It was made out of my own creation and any similarity is purely coincidental.
I used PSPx2 but any version will do.

This is tube is not sold alone, it is part of a pack,

Let’s start with the mask layer:

Open Paper 2.  Open mask and minimize.
SELECTIONS – SELECT ALL – Copy and paste Paper 2 into selection.
Go to LAYERS – NEW MASK LAYER – FROM IMAGE – SOURCE LUMINANCE - CHECKED – from menu, find WSL 84 – OK.  Duplicate and merge down.  Re-size 115%.

Now for the frame:
Element 21 - C/P and re-size 80%.  Make sure your frame layer is highlighted.  Grab your magic wand.  Click in the middle of the frame layer.   
C/Paste into selection Paper 9.  Keep selected.  
Now grab the tube you are using.  If you are using the same one as me, grab the CU now.  C/P and move her into position.  
SELECTIONS - INVERT - DELETE - SELECTIONS - INVERT. Duplicate the tube layer.  
Change BLEND MODE of copy of tube layer to HARD LIGHT and leave the original tube layer on normal.
