You will need the “Burning Love” mask from the freebie set from
(it's under Freebies)

I used a drop shadow of vertical 0, horizontal 5, opacity 85, blur 10.


Open the mask, duplicate it, close the original and resize the copy 20% with the “Resize all layers” box checked.  Make a new layer, move it to the bottom and fill it with white.

Make another layer, select all and paste paper 1 into the selection.  Click on the Raspberry Road mask layer, go to Selections – float, Selections – defloat, Selections – invert, click back on the paper layer and hit delete, deselect and delete the Raspberry Road layer.

Paste cloud, resize 65% and position on the heart.

Paste frame 4 and resize it 30%.  Click anywhere on your canvas outside of the frame with your magic wand to make a selection, invert the selection and contract it by 4, make a new layer below the frame and paste paper 3 into the selection.  Paste your tube and, resize as necessary, position in the frame, invert the selection and hit delete to remove the excess, deselect.  Apply the drop shadow to the tube and the frame, merge the frame down onto the tube , merge down again onto the paper and place in position. 

Paste heartspill as a new layer below the merged layer, resize 80%, place in position erasing some from each side that are too far out and apply the drop shadow.

Paste ribbon 1 on the top, resize 50%, place in position along the bottom of the frame and apply the drop shadow.

Paste the candle, resize 40%, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Paste brushed leaves, resize 60% and rotate 90 degrees to the right, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Paste leaves 1, resize 50% and rotate 10 degrees to the right, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Pate barbwire, resize 60%, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Paste charmcross, resize 30% and rotate 20 degrees to the right, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Paste ribbon 2, resize 45%, rotate 100 degrees to the left and flip, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Paste floral, resize 45%, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Paste rosebud, resize 40%, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Paste winged, resize 35%, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Paste word art 1 with glow, resize 70% and place in position.

Paste breeze, resize 70% and place in position.

Check your layers and make any necessary adjustments.  I used the Pick tool (Deform tool in older versions) on the mask to stretch it down a bit.  When you are done, crop your tag, add your copyright information and text, apply an inner bevel to the text with the settings in my screenshot below and the drop shadow and then export your tag on a transparent background as a png.
