Alright, let's get started!

Open a new canvas, size 650x65. (Yours can be smaller or larger, if you prefer.)

Open your template. 

Select all layers of the template that you want to keep and link them together. 

Drag over to blank canvas and resize as needed. 

Unlink the layers.

Drag p12 over to "copy of vector 1"  above the Raster 2 layer. 

Resize as needed.

Create a clipping mask. 

Drag p11 over Raster 3 layer. 

Resize as needed. 

Create a clipping mask.

Select layer "copy of vector 1" above the Raster 6 layer.

Fill it with a dark green color - #2d5e00

Add Penta - Color Dots

Select layer "copy of vector 1" above the Raster 5 layer.

Fill it with a light green color - #95be63

Again add Penta - Color Dots

Drag ele32 behind the template and treat it as a mask. 

Resize as needed. 

Make sure nothing is cut off.

Move the word art (link the layers together) to the middle-right of the template.

For Raster 8, "beautiful",  use these blending options:
Drop shadow 
Color Overlay - White (#ffffff)
   Size - 3
   Color - #194f00

For Raster 7, "Irish Babe", make it the same dark green as earlier - #2d5e00.

Add Penta - Color Dots 

Add drop shadow to Raster 9, not Raster 7.

Drag your tube of choice to about the middle of the template, behind the word art.

Add drop shadow.

Add filters to tube. Follow the images below:

Xero Porcelain

Xero Radiance

Drag ele37 behind the word art, but in front of the tube. 

Resize as needed. 

Add a drop shadow.

Now add (in order from left to right) ele14, ele11, ele15, ele30, ele9, ele10 behind ele37. 

Resize them as needed. 

Add a drop shadow to each element.

Drag ele17 and place at an angle over the top left hand corner of the template. 

Resize as needed. 

Add a drop shadow.

Drag ele35 over the green layer of Raster 5 (small circle). 

Resize as needed. 

Add a drop shadow. 

Add noise (glitter effect) if you like. 

Drag ele06 to the bottom left hand corner of the green layer of Raster 6. 

Resize as needed. 

Add a drop shadow.

Drag ele18 between the large green circle and the small green square. 

Rotate it so that is vertical at an angle. 

Resize as needed. 

Add a drop shadow.

Drag ele42 on top of the paper clipped to Raster 2's vector copy. 

Resize as you like (create a clipping mask to avoid any hanging out).

For the name use KG Luck of the Irish font.

I placed it over the rainbow.

The name is #e06387.

The stroke is white (#fffff), size 2.

Select the pixels of the name layer and expand by 3 or 4 (depending on preference).

Fill with color #2d6907.

Add a drop shadow the the green layer of the name.

Add copyright information and tagger mark. 

Crop out any extra canvas and save your .psd and .png.

I had fun with this kit and I know you will too. Thanks for looking!
