Apply a drop shadow to ALL 3 ribbons.

You might need to go to your layers pallet, and move your Egg Tree layer down so that it is below your Rabbit Green layer.
Apply a drop shadow to your Egg Tree.


Now activate your text tool by clicking on it :
Set your font to a font of your choice. I used GabbyGauguinsh, Size 50 pixels, color Black. I wrote the phrase "Happy Easter" you can put the same or whatever you would like.
Once you have your phrase done click apply.
Now apply a drop shadow .


Now is the time to add your name, & any copyright/credit information.

Once you have your information all added to your tag, go to your layers pallet and right click on your NAME layer. Click Convert To Raster Layer.

Now go to Effects, click on Plug-ins, then click Eye Candy 4, then click Gradient Glow. Settings like mine below, or you can work with your own settings.




Once you have that done it is time to animate!!
(If you wish not to animate you can stop here, but first merge your layers together by right clicking on any layer, click merge, then merge together. Then you will want to crop your tag to get rid of any access canvas that we did not use. Once your tag is cropped you may or may not need to re-size it. If you do need to re-size it go to Image, click Re-size, then put in your settings.
Once you have re-sized your tag you should sharpen it. So go to Adjust, then click Sharpness, then click Sharpen.
Save as PNG!

ANIMATE :

If you wish to animate, lets continue :

Open your Animation Shop.

Go back to your PSP, and in your layers pallet make sure that your Paper layers 2 & 3 are closed/hidden. (hide them by clicking the eye symbol next to each of them).
Now click on your Paper layer 1, go to Edit, click Copy Special, then click Copy Merged.

Go to Animation Shop, right click in the work space and then click "Paste As New Animation".

Go back to PSP, and hide Paper layer 1 (by clicking the eye symbol next to it.) and unhide Paper layer 2 (To unhide simply click the eye symbol again). Go to Edit, click Copy Special, then click Copy Merged. 

Go to Animation Shop, right click in the first frame we just put there, and click Paste, then click "After Current Frame".

Now go back to your PSP one last time, and hide Paper layer 2, and unhinde Paper layer 3. Go to Edit, click Copy Special, then click Copy Merged. 

Go back to your Animation Shop, right click on the second frame, then click Paste, then click "After Current Frame".
Now you will want to check your animation. To do that look at the top of your Animation Shop on the right hand side, you will see a series of buttons there. You want to click on the second button from the right. If you hoover your mouse over the button it will tell you what it does. So if you hoover your mouse over the second button from the right it should say "View Animation". Click it, and it will show you what your tag will look like animated.

Now if you are happy with your animation & your tag, you may want to re-size your tag, to do this in Animation Shop, you can use your Shift & S keys on your keyboard and that will bring up your Re-size menu. So set your size as you may needed it, click ok, and go to File, then click Save As, and save your tag as a gif file.
Thats it! You have completed this tutorial!

I hope you enjoyed this tutorial, and as always I would LOVE to see what you have made using any of my tutorials. So please feel free to send me what you make. I will be displaying them on my blog!
