frame in black. Select none.
Open frame 1 backing, selections, select all, float, and defloat,
i used #cc2724 to match my tube. Pick a colour from your own tube.
Now do the same with the frames and the backings of 3 & 4,
but alternate the colours.
Optional ... For the frame backings i used Filters Unlimited 2.0, and paper textures,
striped paper, fine, intensity=74, lightness=87 .... on the black backing, lightness=146.
Click on frame 1 in the layer palette. With the magic wand click inside the inner
frame and go to selections, modify, and expand by 3 pixels.
Open your chosen tube and paste as a new layer. Drag this tube below the frame layer.

Give your frames a dropshadow using these settings :
Click on raster layer one. Add a new layer and floodfill in the colour that
matches your tube.
Open your mask. Go to layers, new mask layer, from image.
In the source window choose mask 1. Make sure source luminace, and invert
mask data are checked. In the layer palette, merge group. Go to Image and
resize the mask by 120%. I duplicated for a better effect this makes the mask
stand out more.
On a new layer ... using a basic nut shape from preset shapes, line style = small dashes, width = 2,
with matching colours from your tube, i used the colours black and red. I then did the stitching inside the all the frames. Use the raster deform tool to get a better fit. When your happy, add a drop shadow.
Go to preset shapes again, try using some of them to make embellishments in matching colours,
and then give them the above drop shadow. I made small hearts and a flower.
Go to your text tool, font=CoventryGarden, size=36, stroke=1, and in your chosen colours position your name in the top left hand corner.
Remember to change your line style to solid first. Add the above drop shadow to it.
