I used the font



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

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.

Make a new layer on your canvas, take a sample red colour from one of the elements, fill the layer with the colour and apply the mask.

Paste Frame_5b as a new layer, resize 65%, select the interior of each part of the frame with your magic wand, expand the selection by 20 and make a new layer below it.  Copy Paper_11 and paste it into the selection, deselect.  Apply the drop shadow to the frame, merge the frame down onto the paper and move up a little.

Paste Element_32 as a new layer, resize 65%, drag below the merged layer and position on the left, duplicate mirror the duplicate and position on the right.  Apply the drop shadow to both copies.

Paste your tube as a new layer and bring to the top, resize as needed, place in position and apply the drop shadow.  I resized my tube 70%.

Paste Element 42 as a new layer, resize 55%, drag below the tube, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Paste Element_35 as a new layer, resize 60%, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Paste Element_7b as a new layer, resize 75%, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Paste Element_12 as a new layer, resize 75%, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Paste Element_1 as a new layer, resize 65%, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Paste Element_60 as a new layer,  resize 60%, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Paste Element_26 as a new layer, resize 65%, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Paste Element_62 as a new layer, resize 75% and position on the left, duplicate, mirror the duplicate and position on the right, apply the drop shadow to each layer.

Paste Element_62 as a new layer, resize 50%, mirror, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Paste Element_46 as a new layer, resize 65%, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Paste Element_9 as a new layer, resize 75%, mirror, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Paste Element_27 as a new layer, resize 70%, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Paste Element_54 as a new layer, resize 35%, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Paste Element_61 as a new layer, resize 65%, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Paste  Spray_1 as a new layer, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Paste Wordart_2 as a new layer and bring to the top, resize 70%, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Check the positions of your layers and make any necessary adjustments, I had to resize my mask 105% as it had got a little lost.  When you are done, crop your tag, add your copyright information and text, then export on a transparent background as a png.
