Now open P12 - Copy & paste it as a new layer onto your canvas - then go to Selections & click Invert - then on your keyboard press your delete key 1 time, then go back to Selections & click Select None.

Now go to Effects - click Plugins - then click Eye Candy 5 Impact - Gradient Glow.
You can use my settings below or your own, the choice is yours.




Then click Ok.

Now go to Effects - click 3D Effects - then click Drop Shadow
Again you can use my settings below or your own.

 Click Ok.
Go back to your layers pallet & delete your original Raster 7 layer.

Now in your layers pallet - click on Raster 8 layer - go to Selections - click Select All, then go to Selections again & click Float, then go to Selections again & click Defloat -

Now open P4 - Copy & paste it as a new layer onto your canvas - then go to Selections & click Invert, then on your keyboard press your delete key 1 time, then go back to Selections & click Select None.

Now go to Effects - Plugins - Eye Candy 5 Impact - Gradient Glow. Use the same settings you used on the layer above. 
Now go to Effects - 3D Effects - Drop Shadow, again use the same settings you used above.
Go to your layers pallet & delete your original Raster 8 layer. 

Now follow the same steps you used above for your Raster 7 & Raster 8 layers for the following layers, each time use a different paper. I have listed the Paper # I used for each layer. Once you have applied your paper, gradient glow & drop shadow to each layer, don't forget to delete the original layer for each on.
Raster 3 - Paper 3
Raster 4 - Paper 5

A - #ff2687
M - #fff5000
I - #9227bc
E - #000000

Foreground Color - Set to nul

(The way I did my name was I typed out the name I wanted to use in one color - then I went threw & highlighted each letter then applied the color I wanted that letter to be.)
Once you get your  name the way you want it, click Apply.

Position your name where you would like it.
Then go to your layers pallet - right click on your name layer - then click Convert To Raster Layer.
Then go to Effects - Plugins - Eye Candy 4000 - Gradient Glow

Use the same settings you have used through out this tutorial.

Now add your copyright/credit information along with your license #. Its very important not to forget this step.

Once you are happy with everything on your tag, activate your crop tool & crop off any access canvas that you did not use. Be careful not to crop to closely to your tag. 

Now go to your layers pallet - right click on any layer - click Merge then click Merge Visible.
