Let’s Start
Open a new canvas 400 x 400 and flood fill with white
Open Ele16 and resize to 300 pixels wide
Copy and paste as a new layer – rename Wreath
Position towards the top left of the canvas, leaving a slight gap
Add a drop shadow of choice – I used:
V&H: 2 / Opacity: 55 / Blur: 9.90 / Color: Black / Shadow on new layer: Unchecked

Open Ele15 and resize to 300 pixels wide
Copy and paste as a new layer – rename Branch
Position over the Wreath, but leave the top left edge of the wreath showing
Add the same drop shadow

Open Ele2 and resize to 300 pixels wide
Copy and paste as a new layer – rename Branch 2
Image, Free Rotate, 90 Degrees to the left
Position on the right side of the Wreath and apply the same drop shadow

Copy and paste your tube as a new layer – rename Tube
Resize if needed, I resized by 65%, all layers unchecked
Position where it looks best
Add the same drop shadow as used before BUT change the H to 4

Open Ele9 and resize to 150 pixels high
Copy and paste as a a new layer – rename Bucket
Position on one side of the tube
Its up to you whether you have it in front of behind the tube
Add the same drop shadow BUT set the H back to 2

Open Ele12 and resize to 150 pixels wide
Copy and paste as a new layer – rename Candle
Position on the other side of the Bucket
Again decide whether you want it in front or behind the tube
Add the same drop shadow

Activate Branch 2
Open Ele4 and resize to 200 pixels high
Copy and paste as a new layer – rename Branch 3
Position sitting behind Branch 2 and to the right of it
Add the same drop shadow

Activate your tube layer
Open Ele18 and resize to 300 pixels wide
Copy and paste as a new layer – rename Cluster
Position along the base of the tag
Add the same drop shadow
Erase any tube that is below the Cluster layer

Activate your white background layer
Open a paper of choice – I used paper 1
Resize to 400 pixels
Copy and paste as a new layer
Layers, Load/Save Mask, Load Mask from Disk
Look for RD_MaskSet100_Mask2 or one of choice
Source luminance, Fit to layer and Hide all mask: Checked
Layers, Merge, Merge Group

Duplicate the mask layer
Layers, Arrange, Bring to Top
Change the blend mode to Overlay and reduce the opacity to about 42

Select your text tool and choose a font – I used Arkana
Set your foreground to null, background to a color choice
Create as vector and Anti-Alias both checked
Add your name
Position along the base of the tag
When happy, convert to raster
