Open the template and duplicate. Close out original.

Close out all layers on the template.
Open Raster layer 2, the little circles. Selections, select all, float, defloat, copy and paste paper 12, invert, delete key, select none. Add a drop shadow and delete original layer.

Open Raster layer 4, big circle, selections, select all, float, defloat, copy and paste paper 12, invert, delete key, select none. Open black paper from supplies. On copy of vector 1, outer circle, selections, select all, float, defloat, copy and paste black paper, invert, delete key, select none. Merge these two layers together. I copy and paste because it looks smoother than a flood fill of black. Add a drop shadow and delete both original layers.

Open Raster 3, light gray rectangle, selections, select all, float, defloat, copy and paste paper 3, invert, delete key, select none. Copy black paper again. Copy of vector 1, outside rectangle, selections, select all, float, defloat, paste black paper, invert, delete key, select none. Merge these two layers together.

Go back to raster 6, selections, select all, float defloat, modify, expand by 2, copy and paste black paper from supplies, invert, delete key, select none. Put this layer right below the pink dotted lines and merge both layers together. Delete original raster 6. Open Copy of Raster 6 and repeat steps above. Merge both dotted lines together and add drop shadow.
Open Raster 5, dark gray rectangle, selections, select all, float, defloat, copy and paste paper 3, invert, delete key, select none. On copy of vector 1, outside rectangle, selections, select all, float, defloat, copy and paste black paper, invert, delete key, select none. Merge these two layers. Delete both original layers and add drop shadow.

We are finished with all the layers of the template now.
