Nudge Nudge
Looks cool, but we still need to do something.
With the "LAW &" Layer still selected.
Select the move tool (hit V).
Now tap the left arrow key on the keyboard about three or four times.
This will offset the black text layer to the left of the copied white layer.

Lets get some order!

Basically we are going to repeat the process from the last few steps, except a few little changes.
Set the Foreground color to white and background color to black in the color pallet.
Hit D then X on the keyboard.
Create a copy of the "ORDER" layer in the layers pallet by dragging it down to the new layer icon at the bottom of the layer pallet.
Now select the original "ORDER" layer with the mouse. (just below the copied layer)
Then hit Ctrl-left mouse click on the layer to put a highlighted selection around it.
Hit Ctrl-Backspace to fill the selected text to black.
Once again don't panic if you don't see the change to black.
The layer is under the white "ORDER copy". (if you have to check, hide the copied layer by clicking the visibility eye on the copied layer).
See image.



Deselect the text by hitting Ctrl-D.
Make sure all layers are visible. (if you hid any layers from the last step).
Change the foreground and background colors of the color pallet.
White Forground and Red Background.

Now with the original "ORDER" Layer selected.
This time we won't use a gradient.
Notice the settings are a bit different.
From the menu.
Layer > Layer Style > Outer Glow..
Set the setting as seen in the image.
See image.


Nudge Nudge again..
With the "ORDER" Layer still selected.

There you go. Your settings may vary depending on text size, font type, and of course personal preference, but that's the basics.
I hope you enjoyed this tutorial and learned a little something. Good Luck!
