I used a drop shadow of vertical and horizontal 5, opacity 80, blur 10.


Open new transparent canvas 700 by 600 and fill with white.

Copy pp4, make a new layer on your canvas, select all, paste the paper into the selection, deselect and apply the mask.  Resize 105%.

Paste element 12 as a new layer, resize 70%, rotate 10 degrees to the left and place in position.  Select the interior of each part of the frame with your magic wand and expand the selection by 7, make a new layer below it and fill with the colour #8b6f56, deselect. 

Paste your tube as new layer, rotate it 10 degrees to the left, apply the drop shadow and, resizing as needed, position it in the left part of the frame.  Select the interior of that section of the frame only and expand it as before, invert it and hit delete on the tube to remove the excess.  If you are using one of Barbara’s layered tubes, duplicate it and close the original, pick your layers and copy merged.  I used the main tube its original size.  Make sure the tube layer is active and go to Effects – Photo Effects – Sepia toning and pick “Major Age” from the drop down menu. 

Paste your tube again, mirror it and repeat the last steps rotating the tube to the right and positioning in the right section of the frame.

Now paste element 6 as a new layer making sure it’s between the two tubes and the frame then also rotate it 10 degrees to the left. Change the blend mode on the element to “Overlay” and place it in position over the tubes.  Again select the interior of each part of the frame and expand it as before, invert it and hit delete on element 6 to remove the excess, deselect and apply the drop shadow to the frame.  Close of your bottom white layer and mask layer, merge visible and re-open the closed layers.

Paste  your tube again, resize it as needed, place in position and apply the drop shadow.  This time I resized my tube 70%

Paste element 13 as a new layer.   Resize 45% and rotate 30 degrees to the right, drag below the tube and position on the left, duplicate, mirror the duplicate and position on the right.  Apply the drop shadow to both layers.

Paste element 20 as a new layer.  Resize 50% and rotate 30 degrees to the right, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Paste element 26 as a new layer.   Resize 70%, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Paste element 23 as a new layer.  Resize 45% and duplicate, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Paste element 21 as a new layer.   Resize 80%, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Paste element 18 as a new layer.   Resize 45% and rotate 10 degrees to the left, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Paste element 3 as a new layer and bring to the top.   Resize 65% and rotate 20 degrees to the right, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Paste element 22 as a new layer.  Resize 50%, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Paste element 9 as a new layer.  Resize 25% and duplicate, mirror the duplicate and resize it another 85%, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Paste element 4 as a new layer.   Resize 35%, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Paste element 28 as a new layer.  Resize 80% and rotate 100 degrees to the right, drag down to just above the clock, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

 Check your layers and make any necessary adjustments.  When you are done, crop your tag, add your copyright information and text then export on a transparent background as a png.
