Here we go!
Open a new image, 600x600 (we can resize later), flood fill with white.
Open paper8 - Copy, paste as a new layer, apply Sabre mask1, merge down, duplicate.
Open frame4 - Copy, paste as a new layer, resize if necessary.
Open tube or image of choice - The image I chose does not need a background so I just copied and pasted. If your using a tube, flood fill frame with a paper of choice, move underneath frame layer, paste tube as new layer, make any resizing now.
Open swoosh - Copy, paste as a new layer, arrange over mask layer to the right of the frame, duplicate, mirror.
Open bloodstain - Copy, paste as a new layer, resize if necessary.
Open journal - Copy, paste as a new layer underneath frame layer, resize if necessary, duplicate, change blend mode to multiply.
Open feather, spiral ribbon, blood, bloodtini, and string bow - Copy, paste as a new layers, resize to your liking - duplicate both the spiral ribbon and the string bow changing the blend modes to multiply.
At this point, I usually resize if I need a smaller image. I also save both the original size and the smaller size images.
Open fangtasia wordart - Copy, paste as a new layer, resize if necessary.
Add a new vector layer for "My Lover". Try to choose a font that is a handwritten style.
Add a new vector layer for your text, I chose the bar slogan. To make it stand out, I duplicate the layer, convert bottom layer to raster, select all, use magic wand to select text, expand by 2, floodfill with white.
Add a new vector layer for your name. I choose paper2 as my floodfill.
Go back through to sharpen and add a drop shadow to your layers.
Add your copyright as the finishing touch.
Save your tag in your favorite format and you are done!!
