The Steps

1. Make sure the background is already cut out, sharpened, black & white or whatever else you need it to be.

3. This time stroke with your gradient. Match your settings to mine.

4. Repeat step 2.

5. You're going to be adding a "Stroke" and "Drop Shadow" this time. Match both of the settings to mine but for the stroke use either your scanline pattern or the one I have provided for you.
