**This tutorial was written using Photoshop CC. I believe the instructions should work with various other versions, but they are not tested on any other version. This tutorial is my own creation. Any similarity to any other tutorial is not done purposely or knowingly (aside from the fact that the process is pretty similar in most tutorials). If you do not know how to do some of the things I mention here (like mirroring an image, adding a drop shadow, resizing elements, etc.), check out my “Tips and Tricks” tutorial. **

DS – Drop Shadow
Settings I use:
DS Settings - Blend Mode set to Multiply, Opacity set to 75%, Angle set to 120 degrees, Distance 5, Spread 0, Size 5
Open a new canvas (Ctrl +N) 700 x 700, transparent background. This will be referred to as the working canvas in my directions when switching between canvases.
Add Paper 2 to the canvas and resize to fit the entire canvas.
Add Paper 4 to the canvas and resize to fit the entire canvas. Use the Rectangular Marquee Tool and draw a rectangle around the bottom quarter or so of the canvas. Right click on the paper layer and select “Rasterize layer”, then press the delete key with the layer selected. This will create a small area displaying the first paper. This creates separation to form a wall and floor effect.
Add Element 59 to the canvas and resize to fit so it reaches from the “floor” to the top of the canvas. Duplicate the element and then flip it horizontally (Edit > Transform > Flip Horizontal). Position the original layer on the right side of the canvas and then move the duplicate over to the left side.
Add Element 35 to the canvas and resize to fit proportionally. Position the dog in front of the middle of the screens. Add DS.
Add Element 1 to the canvas and resize to your liking. Position on the left side of the canvas in front of the screen.
Add tube “Kelly” to the canvas. Resize to fit the canvas. Position her slightly in front of the box to the left of the dog. Add DS.
Add tube “Kiara” to the canvas. Resize to fit proportionally and position her to look as though she is sitting on the floor in front of the screen slightly in front of the dog.
Add Element 6 to the canvas. Resize to be large enough to hold the name you want to put on the tag.
Voila! The focal point of your tag is now created.
Now decorate your tag with any of the beautiful girly elements from the kit. Resize the elements as you add them to fit the proportions of your tag. Experiment with rotating them and mirroring them for more variety. In addition duplicate elements and use multiple times to fill in holes and add more pizzazz. In this tutorial to indicate when I used more than one of the same element I will add (X#) by the name to indicate how many versions of the element I used.
Here are all the additional elements I used from the bottom layers.
- Element 50
- Element 36
- Element 11
- Element 40
- Element 13
- Element 14
