and paste paper5. Drag below frame layer with your selection tool, make a rectangle around
the white part of the frame. Selections, invert, and hit delete on your keyboard. Your
paper should only be visible on the inside of the frame. Add dropshadow to the frame. copy
and paste butterfly scatter add dropshadow, copy and paste tube, duplicate it, on the bottom
tube add dropshadow and drag below the frame, erase anything hanging over the frame, on the
top tube layer, erase any parts sticking out on top of the frame.
Now just copy and paste the other elements and place them where you want, see sample for placements
Crop and resize to your liking, I resized to 500. Make sure DPI is 72.
Add your name. I did add a gradient glow to mine but if you do not have Eyecandy 4000, just
selections, float, defloat, modify by 2, add new raster layer and flood fill with black.
Drag below the name and add dropshadow.
Merge visible and save! you're done! Simple and easy.
