Open your template. Set the canvas size to 1000 x 840. Resize by 60%.

We are now going to work from the bottom up. It’s a little tricky due to the repeat layer names.

Merge together:

Both brown circle layers. Rename this layer to 1.
WhiteSquare & brown Square. Rename this layer to 2.
WhiteSquare & brown Square. Rename this layer to 3.
Teal Rectangle & WhiteRectangle. Rename this layer to 4.
Teal Rectangle & WhiteRectangle. Rename this layer to 5.
Teal Square & WhietSquare. Rename this layer to 6.

Delete the following layers: Merged, Wordart, & WordartPixel.

Now we are going to replace each layer with the following papers (working from the bottom up):

1 – Paper 12
2 – Paper 4
Rectangle – Paper 11
3 – Paper 4
4 – Paper 15
5 – Paper 15
Circle – Paper 2
Rectangle – Paper 11
Circle – Paper 2
6 – Paper 16
Square – select all, float, defloat. Add a new raster layer. Now open Paper 8. Copy & Paste into selection. Deselect & delete the square layer.

Open your mask & Paper 9. Paste your paper as a new layer & move this layer to the bottom layer. Apply your mask, merge group. Duplicate your mask, then merge down.

Now lets add our elements:

Element 2 – resize by 25%. Paste as a new layer above the top square layer. Place to the upper right corner of the square layer.
Element 15 – resize by 25%. Place over the rosette.
Element 1 – resize by 50%. Place to the top of the large square.
Element 29 – resize by 60%; flip horizontal. Place to the bottom right.
Element 6a – resize by 40%. Place over the yellow flowers.
Element 60 – resize by 60%. Place to the bottom.

Element 56 – resize by 45%. Place to the left side of the top square.
Spray 1 – resize by 80%. Place to your liking.
Element 25 – resize by 30%. Place over the ladder. I put mine on the second rung from the top.
Element 50 – resize by 40%. Place to the bottom right.
Element 8 – free rotate to the right, 180 degrees. Place to the bottom.
Element 5 – resize by 36%. Place to the bottom left.

Element 64 – resize by 25%; flip horizontal. Place over the bow.
Element 24 – resize by 40%. Place to the bottom.

Element 18 – resize by 45%. Place over the top of the left blue flowers.
Spray 3a – resize by 75%. Paste as a new layer.
Element 10 – resize by 25%. Place to the bottom right.
Spray 7 – resize by 87%. Paste as a new layer.

Open your tube. Paste as a new layer above the sequin layer, resizing as necessary. Duplicate your tube, gaussian blur 3.00. Set the blend mode to Soft Light. On the original tube layer, Shift + L, 0, 0.

Add your name, copyright, & license info. Apply a drop shadow of choice to your layers. Merge visible & save as a PNG.
