Fill bottom layer with white; this will be deleted later.
Pick Preset Shape Tool / Ellipse / Width of 10 / No fill color. I chose #a0c4ed as my line color. Above your white layer, draw a large circle (hold Shift key while doing so will keep it circular). Objects; Align; Center in Canvas, convert to Raster.
Using Magic Wand click inside the circle; then Selections; Modify; Expand by 3. Add a new raster layer below the circle. Open Paper11, copy and Paste into Selection. Select none.
Add Noise to the circle frame layer - 80% / Uniform / Monochrome; then Sharpen.
Below the circle frame layer, copy and paste Flower 2. I resized 25% then 80% and then colorized to Color #5480a6. Now go to Mura Meister Copies, select Encircle. I only changed the first 3 boxes – your numbers will be different, depending on the size of your large circle. My flower ring is just barely outside of the frame (see tag).
>> My settings were: first box 18, next one 75, next one 80 – leave the others to default.
Above the circle frame, copy and paste Frame 4. I wanted to resemble a window so I resized 40%.
Below Frame 4, copy and paste Paper 9; Resize 70%. Move into position; remove any excess showing outside the frame.
If you want to decorate ‘window’ the way that I did:
Copy and paste Winter Bird below frame layer; Resize 15%; Mirror.
Copy and paste Deer; Resize 70%.
Copy and paste Hot Cocoa 1; Resize 30%
Copy and paste Bow 2; Resize 30%; rotate left 90%. Place at left.
Now go back and add Drop Shadow to all layers to your liking.
If you like, resize your tag; all layers. Now add your Credits. Adding them after resizing your tag will ensure that they remain crisp; clear; and easy to read.
Add your Name and any Effects. I used White for my Name and EyeCandy Gradient Glow. Then I added Drop Shadow.
Delete the white layer; crop to visible layers then save. I saved mine in Transparent PNG Format.
