Then, Fill the Background with one of the patterns in the Floral Fabric Patterns set, the one used in the tutorial is called “Textures-WhiteFlorals-01_inspyretash-stock.jpg”.

Contour: Change the Contour to Half Round and check the Anti-aliased box. This will make the Bevel and Emboss effect a bit more defined.

Gradient Overlay: Change the Blend Mode to Soft Light and the Opacity to 10. Then, choose the default Black, White Gradient, check the Reverse box, and change the Angleto 0. This will make the right side of the tile (where the shadow is) a little bit darker than the left side.
