Open template 1, Shift + "D" to duplicate to a new image. Close original template and go ahead and "Save As" your new template to your desired folder. Turn off copyright layer and move to bottom.
In your layer window, select Raster Layer 2, Select All, add new layer, flood fill with paper 5, delete Raster Layer 2.
Repeat with Raster Layer 6.
In your layer window, select Raster Layer 3, Select All, add new layer, flood fill with paper 16, delete Raster Layer3.
Repeat with Copy of Vector Layers 2, 3, 4, and 5.
In your layer window, select Raster Layer 5, Select All, add new layer, flood fill with paper 10, delete Raster Layer5.
In your layer window, select Raster Layer 4, Select All, add new layer, flood fill with paper 14, keep selected, add new layer, flood fill with paper 20, delete Raster Layer4. Change the blend mode of red paper to multiply and drop opacity down to 86.
In your layer window, select Raster Layer 7, Select All, add new layer, flood fill with paper 3, delete Raster Layer7. Effects, Texture Effects, Blinds W3, O10, color black, check both horizontal and light from left/top.
Open your tube or image of choice - select heart layer, copy and paste tube as new layer,move to where desired, invert, select tube layer in layer window, delete, deselect all, adjust layer opacity to 50, change blend mode to Soft Light.
Copy and paste another tube or image of your choice as top layer, move or resize as desired.
Open floral 5, copy and paste as a new layer, resize to your liking.
Open glitter border 2, colorize to 0,0, sharpen, erase any extra parts, move under main tube layer.
Open butterfly, copy and paste as new layer, resize and postion to the top right.
At this point, I usually resize if I need a smaller image. I also save both the original size and the smaller size images.
Add a new vector layer for your name - (I floodfilled mine with paper 15) To make it stand out, use could use either Eye Candy or duplicate the layer, convert bottom layer to raster, select all, use magic wand to select text, expand by 2, floodfill with white.
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!!
