I used the alpha included with the kit
for my text.



Please check out my “About my tutorials” page if this is the first tutorial of mine you have followed, thank you.

I used a drop shadow of vertical and horizontal 5, opacity 75, blur 10.


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

Copy Paper_9, make a new layer on your canvas, select all, paste the paper into the selection, deselect and apply the mask.  Resize 85% and lower the opacity to around 60.

Paste Frame_4 as a new layer, resize 60% and move up and to the left a little.  Select the interior of the frame with your magic wand, expand the selection by 2 and make a new layer below it.  Copy Paper_11 and paste it into the selection, do not deselect.

Paste your tube as a new layer, position in the frame resizing as needed, invert the selection and hit delete to remove the excess and apply the drop shadow to the tube and the frame.  My tube came in two layers, with and without the mushrooms. I used the tube with the mushrooms resized 80%, then I overlaid the tube without the mushrooms above the frame resized 55% so her feet came above the frame.  I applied the shadow to this second tube on a separate layer and erased it all apart from around her feet.

Paste Element_54 as a new layer, resize 70% and rotate 10 degrees to the left, drag down to just above the mask, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Paste Element_6 as a new layer and bring to the top, resize 65% and rotate 1 degrees to the left, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Paste Element_25 as a new layer, mirror, resize 60%, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Paste Element_27 as a new layer, resize 50%, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Paste Element_20b as a new layer, resize 45%, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Paste Element_16 as a new layer, resize 45%, drag below 20b, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Paste Element_2 as a new layer, resize 45%, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Paste Element_50 as a new later, resize 35%, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Paste Element_53 as a new layer, resize 30% and rotate 20 degrees to the right, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Paste Element_26 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.

Paste Element_52 as a new layer, resize 45%, mirror, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Paste Element_15 as a new layer, resize 70%, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Paste Element_28 as a new layer, resize 50%, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Paste Element_21 as a new layer, resize 45%, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Paste Element_35 as a new layer, resize 25%, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Pate Wordart_1b as a new layer, resize 75%, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Check your layers now and make any necessary adjustments.

Paste Element_36 as a new layer, resize 70% and position directly below the wordart.

Paste Element_10 as a new layer, resize 80%, position this also just below the wordart and apply the drop shadow.

Paste Element_7 as a new layer, resize 60% and place in position.

Paste Spray_1 as a new layer on the top, resize 55% and place in position.

Add your text, I resized the alpha 50%, then crop your tag, add your copyright information and export on a transparent background as a png.
