Create a Skeuomorphic Wedding CD Cover Using Only Nondestructive Layers

Step 19

In the options bar, change the fill to black and stroke to 90% gray.
Here’s what your pin should look like.

Step 20

Next, we’re going to apply several layer styles to give it a metallic look. Go to Layer > Layer Style > Bevel & Emboss. Set the technique to Chisel Hard, size to 3px, and angle to 90 degrees.
Enable the Contour style then use the settings shown below.

Step 21

Enable the Drop Shadow option and set the Spread to 25% and Size to 9px.

Step 22

To give it a metallic look, we’re going to add a noise gradient. Enable the Gradient Overlay option then click on the gradient to open the Gradient Editor. In the Gradient Editor, change the color model to HSB, drag the S black input slider to the very left, then drag the B black input slider towards the right like shown below. Keep clicking the Randomize button until you get a gradient that looks metallic.
Here’s what our button looks like.

Step 23

Duplicate the layer with the string (Ctrl/Cmd+J) then drag it towards the right so that it appears near the right frame. Repeat this to create a string for the left frame. Rename your layers and you’re done!
