Tube of choice I am using the artwork of Elias Chatzoudis and you need a license for his work found here
Sweet Romance Template made be me found here

Add Drop Shadow as you go with your settings at 2, 2, 65, 15
Open up template, then duplicate the template by holding down the Shift + D, close out the original
Delete the copyright layer
Now we are going to add a weave effect on all 3 oval black frames. So to do this Convert each black frame to raster layer. Just right click and click convert to raster layer. Then go to Effects-Texture Effects-Weave. And have your settings set at this:
and pick a red color from the template(this will give you the color for the dots)
Now for the word Sweet Romance we wanna give it a glassy bevel look. So on the Sweet Romance layer convert to raster, then go to Effects-3D Effects-Inner Bevel and your settings should be like this
Now your words should be looking like they are glassy. Now to give your text a black background, go to Selections-Select All-Float-Defloat-Selections-Modify-Expand by 2, then on your layers palette, the layer under your text, right click, add new raster layer, then with your flood fill tool, fill in with the color black.
Okay so now open up your tube and right click, copy and paste as new layer. Duplicate and mirror the duplicate. Move them on to the 2 smaller red ovals. Now on the left black oval frame, click in side with your magic wand then go to Selections-Modify-Expand by 5, then highlight your tube layer in your layers palette, then go to Selections-Invert-Delete-Selections-Select None. Then change the blend mode to Luminance, do the same steps for the tube on the Right side
Then on the large black oval, use your wand and click inside of the fame and then go to Selections-Modify-Expand by 5, then open up your tube again and duplicate, right click copy and paste as new layer, duplicate, place the duplicate above the frame and the other tube below the frame but above the red oval. Then go to Selections-Invert-Delete-Selections-Select None. Then on the duplicate erase parts of the tube that are sticking out of the frame
Floodfill the bottom layer with a red from the tube and then add your mask, invert your mask.
Add your name and copyright
