Open the template. Shift + D. Close out the original. Delete the credit layer. New Rater Layer. Flood Fill white and send down to bottom. Resize canvas 650 X 650.

Highlight the Back layer. Select All/Float/Defloat. Copy and paste a paper of choice. Selections/Invert. Hit the delete button. Effects/3D Effects/Inner Bevel. Use these settings:

Delete the template layer.

Repeat the above steps for Inner Frame, Bottom Outer Frame, and Top Outer Frame.

After you’ve done those layers then highlight Bottom Inner Frames layer. Select All/Float/Defloat. Copy and paste a paper of choice as a new layer. Selections/Invert. Hit the delete button. Delete the template.

Highlight the Outer Frame that goes to the inner frames. Use your magic wand and click inside each one. Selections/Invert. Copy and paste a tube as a new layer. Move into position and then hit the delete button. Repeat this for the other 2 frames. Then merge visible the Inner Frame, Outer Frame, and your tubes.

Repeat the above step for Top Inner Frames.

Add your embellishments: I used
Element 27: Resize 30%
Element 17: Resize 40% - gave it the same inner bevel

Elements 7 & 8: Resize 40%

Highlight your white canvas. New Rater Layer. Select All. Copy and paste a paper of choice Into Selection. Deselect. Apply your mask. Duplicate/Merge down.

Add your copyrights.

Add your name. Foreground and Background I set to Pattern and used papers from the kit then gave it the same inner bevel.
