Next, Type a letter using any font of your choice, but I recommend BEBAS for this tutorial:
Position the text inside the gold bar and change the text color to #5A3B10 and change the Blend Mode to Multiply
Next Apply the following Layer Styles to the text, Bevel & Emboss and enter the values and color codes
Apply Inner Shadow
Now, draw a rectangle shape, add the color code #FFD014 and rotate to the direction similar to the screengrab below:
Next, Duplicate the Rectangle from the layer panel, change the opacity of Rectangle 1 copy to 10% and rectangle 1 to 40% and rearrange
the layers similar to the screengrab below:
Finally, we need to mask the rectangles inside the Gold bar and text layers
Right click on each of the rectangle layer and click on Creat Clipping Mask, Then move the layers into a Group, select the layers and Press CTRL + G on the keyboard
