WE WILL RESIZE THE IMAGE AT THE END, BUT A LARGE WORKSPACE IS EASIER TO WORK WITH.

OPEN YOUR TUBE AND EDIT >COPY.

CLICK ON YOUR NEW BLANK IMAGE TO REACTIVATE IT AND

EDIT>PASTE AS NEW LAYER.

RESIZE AS NECESSARY.  IDEALLY YOU WANT A VERY LARGE BORDER.

IMAGE>RESIZE.  MAKE SURE RESIZE ALL LAYERS IS NOT TICKED

Effects>3D Effects> Chisel

I suggest you use the following settings, choosing a lighter colour from your tube.

Play, experiment, make it your own.

You can choose to add a gaussian blur to make a softer effect.

 

Adjust > Blur> Gaussian Blur>Radius  15.00.

Select the font of your choice and the colours patterns of your choice to add wording.

I recommend you have your font settings as Create as Vector as this creates a new layer.

Position your text to the height you require and then use the following command to centre it.

Go to Objects>Align>Horiz.Centre in Canvas 

MERGE VISIBLE LAYERS.

Finally resize your image down to 250pixels.

OPTIONAL

Select a colour from your image using the dropper tool

Fill bottom layer with colour (Raster One Layer).

Select Image>Picture Frame and choose any frame.
