Let’s Start
Open a new canvas 400 x 400 and flood fill with white
Open el28 and resize to 325 pixels wide
Copy and paste as a new layer – rename BG
Duplicate and on the copy – Adjust, Blur, Gaussian Blur – radius set to 2

Open el27 and resize to 250 pixels wide
Copy and paste as a new layer – rename Gold Base
Move up and to the right ever so slightly
fg-01
Duplicate 3 times so you have 4 copies
Rename the 3 copies, G1, G2 and G3
On the original Gold Base layer, add a drop shadow of choice – I used:
V&H: 2 / Opacity: 65/ Blur: 8.91 / Color: Black / Shadow on new layer: Unchecked

Activate 3
Effects, Plugins, DSB Flux – Bright Noise
Intensity: 30 / Mix: Click Once
Adjust, Add/Remove Noise, Add Noise

Change the blend mode to Overlay
Hide this layer

Activate 2 and apply the same Bright Noise, clicking Mix once again
Add the same Noise, but change the % to 23
Change the blend mode to Overlay
Hide this layer

Activate 1 and apply the same Bright Noise, clicking Mix once again
Add the same Noise, but change the % to 20
Change the blend mode to Overlay

Activate 3 but keep it hidden
Open el13 and resize to 300 pixels high
Copy and paste as a new layer – rename Net

Position along the bottom of the Gold Base

Activate 3 again, still keeping it hidden
Open el2 and resize to 200 pixels wide

Overlapping the Gold Base and going slightly under the Netting

Resize if required, I resized to 75%, all layers unchecked
Duplicate and add the drop shadow on the original
On the copy – Adjust, Blur, Gaussian Blur – radius set to 5
Change the blend mode to Overlay

Erase any excess from BOTH tube layers that are below the Wordart
I selected the area to be deleted

Select the Wordart, this should be your top layer
Select your text tool and choose a font – I used Sophia
Set your foreground to null, background to black

Still on the paper layer

On the original black text layer – apply a Gaussian Blur with a radius of 2
