♥ Let's Get started! ♥

Open a new raster layer 750x750
For the drop shadow on evertying I am using the following settings:
Verticle: 3, Horizontal: 3, Opacity: 70, Blur: 6, color black. (you use what ever you want)
(*Resize everything before you start copy and pasting)
Paper 15 (resize 86%)

Frame 9 (resize 62%)
Butterfly swarm (resize 66%)
Fern (resize 44%)
Flower 5 (resize 48%)
Leaf pile (resize 80%)
Mask (resize 36%, rotate 34%)
Tall grass

You can always refer to the sample for placement of anything!
Copy and paste paper 15, layers, load/save mask, load mask from disc, select mask and apply.
Copy and paste frame 9. Copy and paste paper 16. Drag it below the frame. Copy and paste
tall grass and position above the paper. With the magic wand tool, click inside the frame.
Selections, modify, modify by 5, invert. On the tall grass layer click delete on the keyboard.
Select the paper layer and hit delete again. On the grass layer, in the layer palatte,
change blend mode to burn and lower opacity to 26.
Copy and paste the leaf pile. Drag under the paper 16 layer, adjust to the top left corner
of the frame. Add dropshadow. Duplicate and drag to lower right corner. (see sample for placement)
Copy and paste the butterfly swarm and drag below paper 16, just above the leaf pile layer.
Adjust to your liking at the lower left corner. Add dropshadow, and duplicate. Drag to top
right corner.
Copy and paste the mask and fern adding your dropshadows. Position to your liking. Again you

dropshadow and duplicate. Mirror and position on the other side. Erase the stem from both
Now it is time to add the tube. If using the same tube as I am, no need to resize, but if not
resize as necessary. Adjust the tube above the flower layer. Duplicate and drag one of the
tubes below the frame layer. With the magic wand tool, clickinside the frame, selections,
modify by 5, invert, select the tube that is below the frame layer and hit delete on the
keyboard. On the top tube layer, add dropshadow and erase any part of the tube at the bottom
that is outside the frame layer. This will make the tube appear to be inside the bottom of the
frame but above the frame at the top. See sample for example. Add your dropshadow to the
frame layer.
now you add your name. If you want it to be like the sample, then you need to follow the next
step to add a gradient glow. If not, then skip to the resizing part.

Now add your gradient glow on these settings:
