1. Open template, change canvas size to 550x300 px (Alt+Ctrl+C). Select all layers and reposition so that layers touch bottom of canvas.






2. Delete creditlayer.

3. Open KKpaper2, copy and paste above gradbkgr layer. Create clipping mask (right click on paper layer and select "Create Clipping Mask".) 

4. Delete the following layers: band2, band1, dotsdown, bottomband, topband, dotsacross, cloverbk-2, CloverFrame-2.

5. Open tube, copy and paste above paper and create clipping mask. Change blend mode to overlay.

6. Select cloverbk-1 and CloverFrame-1 layers, move down slightly so that clover is not visible above rest of template. 






7. Select cloverbk-1 layer, copy and paste tube above this layer and create clipping mask. Change blend mode to color burn.

8. Select CloverFrame-1 layer. Open KKpaper6, resize 60%. Copy and paste above layer and create clipping mask.

9. Delete smclovers and f2 layers.

10. Place the following elements in the bottom left corner as shown in this order:
KK_clover1 resized 25%, duplicated a few times
KK_button2 resized 25%, duplicated once
KK_button1 resized 20%, duplicated once
KK_flower2 resized 20%
KK_flower3 resized 25%, duplicate twice
KK_flower1 resized 25%
KK_flower2 resized 20%, duplicated once
KK_flower3 resized 25%






11. Place the following elements in the bottom right corner as shown in this order:
KK_gold coins resized 40%
KK_rainbow resized 65% (this will be in the upper right)
KK_sparkles resized 50%
KK_pot of gold resized 40%






12. Change blend mode of Rainbow layer to Pin Light with 75% Opacity. Use Rectangular marquee tool to select part of rainbow that shows above template and delete.






13. Copy and paste tube resized as desired above the pot of gold layer. Duplicate and drag layer above all other layers. Erase bottom of this layer so that the frame shows. 

14. Duplicate this layer, change blend mode to Hard Light with 50% Opacity. Do the same for the other tube layer that is below the frame.

15. Open KK_wordart3, resize 50%. Copy and paste in lower right corner below f3 layer.

16. Open KK_string, resize 90%. Copy and paste to canvas and position along top of template.

17. Duplicate string layer and drag layer above f1 layer. Erase part of the string that covers the right side of frame.




18. Open KKpaper11, copy and paste above f3 layer and create clipping mask.

19. Open KKpaper13, copy and paste above f1 layer and create clipping mask.

20. Add name. I used Mael font 36 pt (48 pt for first letter), bevel and emboss, and stroke 2 white with one letter per layer in different colors to match the tag.

21. Add drop shadow to all layers except sparkles layer, tube layers, f1 layer and ribbon layers.

22. Be sure to delete white background layer before saving.

23. Add your watermark, save as .png and you are finished with the banner.
