I used a drop shadow throughout of vertical and horizontal 2, opacity 85, blur 5.



Open a new transparent canvas 650 by 550 pixels and fill with white.

Open paper Christine Marie (21) and copy,  make a new layer on your canvas, select all, paste the paper into the selection, deselect and apply the mask.  Resize 90%.

Open Christine Marie (46) and paste as a new layer.   Resize 55% and move up and to the left.  Select the interior of the frame with your magic wand and expand the selection by 20, open paper Christine Marie (25) and copy, make a new layer below the frame and paste the paper into the selection, deselect.  We will come back to this later.

Open the tube and paste as a new layer, resize 65%, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Open Christine Marie (24) and paste as a new layer.   Resize 65%, drag down below the tube, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Open Christine Marie (14) and paste as a new layer.  Resize 45%, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Open Christine Marie (67) and paste as a new layer.   Resize 50%, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Open Christine Marie (65) and paste as a new layer.   Resize 40% and rotate 10 degrees to the left, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Check the positions of your layers and make any necessary adjustments.

Click on the paper that you pasted into the selection below the frame, paste your tube as a new layer again, resize and position in the frame.  I used layer 5 of the tube resized 50%.  Lower the opacity of the tube to around 45 and apply the drop shadow to the frame.

 When you are done, crop your tag, add your copyright information and text, then export as a jpeg with compression set to 5 or on a transparent background as a png.
