Open a clock element.
Resize 70%. Position above the
1st frame on the left side of the tag.
You want it to appear to be coming out
from behind the top frame layers.

Open a ribbon key element. Resize 70%.

across from the clock - opposite side.
Add the above drop shadow to this layer.

Open a scattered flower element.
Resize 80%. Paste along the top layer on
the bottom of the tag. My element comes up
on the right side of the tag .Add the earlier drop
shadow to the layer.

Open a corner netting element. Copy and paste

Open a vertical branch. Resize 70%. Paste on the right side of the

tag above the net layer. You want it to come up at the top of the tag.

Merge the layers visible except
for the white background.
Duplicate the merged layers once.

Gauassian blur 3.00

Crop to desired size.
Add artist copyright information
& name to the tag.

If you are not animating,
you can save the tag here &
will not need a white background on it.
If you are animating, continue and merge visible.

In Animation shop, open animation of choice.

I changed the color of the animation I am using.
To do this, click on your animation -
Edit select all. Animation - replace a color.
Select the color you are replacing in the animation. On the 2nd box,

choose a color from your tag
to replace the color.Tolerance is 20.

Copy your tag as copy merged. Now go to Animation shop
and paste as a new animation.
Duplicate for the required number of frames
as your animation has.

For the animation I am using, it has 16
frames. This means I have to duplicate
the tag image for a total of 16 frames.
To duplicate, hold down Ctrl and repeatedly
press the L button.
Down on the bottom right corner of AS,
it will show how many frames you have.

Once you have all the frames needed,
edit - select all.
Now on your animation, select all - copy.
Drag onto your tag image.
Select all - view animation.
If happy, save as gif.
