Materials needed for tutorial
Fireup Photoshop and create a new document with dimensions 550x400px. Fill the background with #45452d.
From the Tools bar pick up Rounded Rectangle Tool (U), set radius to 8px and draw a rectangle.
Change the color of rectangle to #00549f (which is the color of the facebook logo), then open Layer Style properties and apply Stroke. Name this layer "sticker background".
Open Facebook vector logo in Photoshop, in the Rasterize EPS format dialog box, for mode choose RGB Color from drop down menu, and click OK. With Magic Wand Tool (W), click on the Facebook background to select blue color, and then while holdig Shift key click on blue color inside letters.
Go to Select -> Inverse to inverse selection (or by pressing Command + Shift + I on keyboard).
Copy selected text and paste it into our document. Name this layer "facebook logo".
Select these two layers and duplicate it.

Select "facebook sticker" and "sticker cut" and merge these two layers into one. Name resulting layer "sticker".
