Open your template. Delete the following layers: credits, 13, 12, 11.

Set the canvas size to 650 x 539. Resize all layers by 92%. Back to setting the canvas size. Set the canvas size to 600 x 500.

Merge together any duplicate layers with their corresponding layer.

Now lets replace our layers with the following:

1 – Paper8
3 – Paper5
4 – Paper6
6 – Paper2
7 – Paper7
9 – set your foreground to #5f9699 & your background to #d1dfc6. Create a linear gradient, angle 45, repeats 3. Add a new raster layer & floodfill the layer with your gradient. (be sure to select all, float, defloat layer 9 before you add your new layer).

Now lets add our elements:

Splatter – resize by 76%. Place to the left side. Duplicate & move to the right, flip vertical. Merge these two layers together. Move this layer to the bottom.
Maracas – resize by 40%. Place above the left small sqaure. Move this layer below the circle paper layer. Rotate slightly to the right.
Blanket – resize by 50%. Place to the right side above the small sqaures layer.
Cactus – resize by 50%. Place to the bottom, between each small square.

Sparkles – place to your liking.

Word Art – resize by 60%. Select all, float, defloat. Add a new raster layer & floodfill with #ffffe9. Deselect.

Because the fill isn’t solid, we are going to do some adjusting. Add a new raster layer just below the word art layer. Floodfill with a darker gray.

On the light floodfill layer, use your brush tool, +Round 10 brush selected from the drop down layer. Make sure the hardness is set to 100. Now paint over the same color as you did the light floodfill. Make sure not to go outside of the edges of this layer.

Delete the dark gray layers. Merge together the wordart & the light floodfill layer. Place to the bottom of your template.

Open your tube & resize as necessary. Paste as a new layer just above the sombrero layer. Erase any part of the tube that extends below the ribbon.

Duplicate your tube & move the duplicate layer so it is just above the gradient layer. Arrange your tube over the left small square. On the gradient layer, select all, float, defloat. On the tube layer, selections, invert & press delete. Deselect.

Effects, artistic effects, halftone using the settings of your choice.

Add your name, copyrights, & license info. Apply a drop shadow of choice, then merge visible. Save as a PNG.
