I used a drop shadow of vertical and horizontal 5, opacity 85, blur 10.



Open a new transparent canvas 650 by 550 pixels and flood fill with white.

Open one of the papers and copy, I used Dearly Departed (40).  Make a new layer on your canvas, select all, paste the paper into the selection, deselect and apply the mask, resize 90%.

Open Dearly Departed (16) and paste as a new layer.   Resize 55%, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Open Dearly Departed (106) and paste as a new layer.  Resize 70%, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Open Dearly Departed (10) and paste as a new layer.   Resize 45% and place in position.

Open the paper Dearly Departed (35) and copy.  Select the interior of the frame with your magic wand and expand the selection by 10, make a new layer below it and paste the paper into the selection, deselect. 

Open the two skeletons and paste each as a new layer with the male behind the female.  Resize each 55% and place in position, apply the drop shadow to each and then merge the female down onto the male.  Duplicate the merged layer and drag it down so its between the frame and paper below it and position in the frame.  Again select the interior of the frame and expand the selection as before, invert it, activate the merged layer and hit delete to remove the excess, deselect.  Apply the drop shadow to the frame and change the blend mode on the merged layer to “Luminance (Legacy)” and the opacity of it to around 60.

Open Dearly Departed (48) and paste as a new layer.   Resize 85%, make sure its just below the main skeleton merged layer, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Open Dearly Departed (53) and paste as a new layer.   Resize 45%, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Open Dearly Departed (38) and paste as a new layer.   Mirror, resize 20%, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Open Dearly Departed (3) and paste as a new layer.   Resize 40%, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Open Dearly Departed (36) and paste as a new layer.   Resize 30% and rotate 15 degrees to the right, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Open Dearly Departed (133) and paste as a new layer.   Resize 45%, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Open Dearly Departed (47) and paste as a new layer.   Resize 50% and rotate 30 degrees to the left, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Open Dearly Departed (107) paste as a new layer and bring to the top.  Resize 40% and rotate 30 degrees to the left, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Open Dearly Departed (20) and paste as a new layer.   Resize 30%, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Open Dearly Departed (40) and paste as a new layer.   Resize 20%, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Open Dearly Departed (1) and paste as a new layer.  Resize 18%, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Open Dearly Departed (132) and paste as a new layer.  Mirror, resize 15%, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Open Dearly Departed (49) and paste as a new layer.  Resize 15% and rotate 20 degrees to the left, place in position and apply the drop shadow. 

Check the positions of your layers and make any necessary adjustments.  When you are done, crop your tag, add your credit to the scrap maker and your name then export as a jpeg with compression set to 5 or on a transparent background as a png.
