****Please note - I post screen shots with settings that I used for each tutorial, please feel free to use my settings if you would like, I have no problem at all with that. You may also play around with your own settings to get a look that you prefer. Nothing is set in stone. But I want you to feel comfortable and if you are just learning & would like to use my settings please feel free, that is what they are there for.****

Start with opening a new 800 X 600 white canvas. (Don't worry you will crop it later. This just gives you enough room to work.)

Now from your scrapkit - Open Frame_5 - Copy & paste it as a new layer onto your canvas - then position it in the center of your canvas.

Now activate your Magic Wand tool - then click inside your Frame_5
Then go to Selections - Modify - Expand - Set it to 8 then click ok.

Now from your scrapkit - open Paper_8 - 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. Now go back to Selections & click Select None.

Go over to your Layers Pallet - move your Paper_8 layer down so that it is directly under your Frame_5 layer.

Now in your layers pallet - click on your Frame_5 layer - then go to Adjust - click Sharpness - then click Sharpen.

Now go to Effects - click on 3D Effects - then click Drop Shadow
(see added note on screen shot)
