Open your template. Set the canvas size to 850 x 528. Resize all layers by 82%. Delete the credits layer & the dotted circle layers.

Open your mask & PP18. Paste you paper as a new layer above the background layer. Apply your mask, merge group. With your pick tool, pull the edges of the mask layer to the edges of the canvas.

Now for our elements:

Feather – resize by 12%. Place to the upper right. Duplicate, free rotate 180 degrees to the right. Place in the lower left corner. When you are satisfied with placement, merge these two layers together. Move this layer below the frame back layer. Erase any part of the feather shaft that shows.

Open your tube. Paste a copy of your tube above the frame back layer. Place inside the first square. Duplicate, flip horizontal & place inside the right square. Now erase any part of the duplicate that shows in the first square. Merge the tube layers together.

On the frame back layer, select all, float, defloat. On the merged tubes layer, selections, invert & press delete. Deselect. Duplicate the merged tube layer, gaussian blur, 3.00. Set the blend mode to screen, 100. On the original layer, set the blend mode to luminance (L), 100.

Open your tube again. Paste as a new layer above the string layer, resizing as necessary. Make sure the bottom of the tube is hidden by the ribbon. Duplicate your tube, gaussian blur using the same settings as before. Set the blend mode to screen, 55.

Add your name, copyright, & license info. I used PP5 for the pattern of the text. For the glow, I used PP13. Apply a drop shadow of choice to your layers, then merge visible. Save as a PNG.
