Don't forget to save frequently!

1. Open template, change canvas size to 600x600 px (Alt+Ctrl+C).

2. Delete copyright layer.

3. Open Web-GI_DOTN, copy and paste above background layer.

4. Open Paper2Purple-GI_DOTN, resize to 600 x 600 px, copy and paste to canvas above frame layer. Create clipping mask. (Right-click layer and select "Create Clipping Mask".)

5. Open Paper3Purple-GI_DOTN, resize to 600 x 600 px, copy and paste to canvas above bottom rectangle layer. Create clipping mask.

6. Open Paper1Purple-GI_DOTN, resize to 600 x 600 px, copy and paste to canvas above top rectangle layer. Create clipping mask.

7. Open tube, copy and paste above previous layer. Change blend mode to Overlay. Resize as desired. Create clipping mask.

8. On the right side, I placed these elements:

RibbonFoldedDark-GI_DOTN, resized 50% and rotated
Leaves-GI_DOTN, resized 50%, duplicated once
Leaves2-GI_DOTN, resized 50%
Flower-GI_DOTN, resized 50%
Geode-GI_DOTN, resized 25%, duplicated once
Flower2-GI_DOTN, resized 30%, duplicated once
FlowerString-GI_DOTN, resized 35%, duplicated once

9. Merge layers in step 8, duplicate and flip horizontally, move to left side, rotate slightly.

Should look like this so far:

10. Open MoonHalfCluster-GI_DOTN, resize 25%, copy and paste to canvas, position in the upper right.

11. Copy and paste tube again, above top line layer. Resize as desired.

12. Add wordart provided here:

13. Add name. I used Sverige Script Decorated, size 50 #833d7f, with 2px stroke black.

14. Add drop shadow to all elements if desired.

15. Open Paper4Purple-GI_DOTN, resize 600 x 600 px, copy and paste to canvas.

16. Drag previous layer all the way to the bottom of layers. Add mask of choice (I used TBT_MCMask4) to layer {Press "Q" while on layer to enter quickmask selection, copy mask and paste, resize to fit canvas (Ctrl-T and then drag each side to edge of canvas, press enter to accept selection), Press "Q" again, then click on the button at the bottom of the layers that is a rectangle with a circle in the middle. Resize as desired.

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

18. Add your watermark, save as .png and you are finished!
