I used a drop shadow of vertical and horizontal 2, opacity 75,blur 5.


Open a new transparent canvas 650 by 600 pixels and fill with white.

Copy Paper_12, make a new layer on your canvas, select all, paste the paper into the selection, deselect and apply the mask.  Resize 95%.

Paste Frame_8c as a new layer, resize 45% and move up and to the right.  Select the interior of each section of the frame with your magic wand, expand the selection by 20 and make a new layer below it, copy Paper_6 and paste it into the selection, deselect.  We will come back to this.

Paste Element_57 as a new layer, resize 80%, drag down to above the mask, place in position on the right, duplicate, mirror the duplicate and position on the left,  apply the drop shadow to each copy.

Paste Element_32 as a new layer, resize 60%, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Paste Element_4 as a new layer and bring to the top, resize 65%, mirror, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Paste your tube as a new layer, resize as needed, place in position and apply the drop shadow.  I resized my tube 47%.

Paste Element_26a as a new layer, resize 45%, mirror drag below the book, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Paste Element_28a as a new layer,  resize 45%, mirror, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Paste Element_50 as a new layer, resize 55% and rotate 20 degrees to the right, position on the right, duplicate, mirror the duplicate and position on the left, apply the drop shadow to each copy.

Paste Element_15 as a new layer, resize 60%, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Paste Element_22a as a new layer, resize 45%, mirror, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Paste Element_31 as a new layer,  resize 45%, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Paste Element+73b as a new layer, resize 55%, position on the left, duplicate, mirror the duplicate and position it on the right, apply the drop shadow to each copy.

Paste Element_23b as a new layer and drag it above the book, resize 50%, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Paste Element_71 as a new layer and bring to the top, resize 45%, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Paste Element_34 as a new layer, resize 40%, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Check your layers and make any necessary adjustments.  Paste your tube again, drag it down below the frame, resize as needed and position in the right hand part.  Select the interior of that part of the frame and expand the selection as before, invert it and hit delete on the tube to remove the excess, deselect.  I resized my tube 65%.  Repeat this with the tube mirrored and fitted in the left part of the frame.  Merge the top copy of the tube down onto the first copy, lower the opacity to around 50,  merge down again onto the paper layer and apply Penta.com Jeans filter with amount set to 50 and border width set on 3.  Apply the drop shadow to the frame.

Paste Spray_3 as a new layer, resize 80%, drag down to above the mask and position on the right, duplicate, mirror the duplicate and move over to the left.

Paste Element_55 as a new layer on the top, resize 40%, duplicate, mirror the duplicate, place in position and apply the drop shadow to each.

 When you are done, crop your tag, add your copyright information and text, then export on a transparent background as a png.
