create a new transparent layer below your layer with the shape on it

move it to your liking, you may want to use the rotate tool a bit
move to liking and fill with new shade of grey

add a border in the same fashion as before. you may want to duplicate this bit and mirror

now we are going to add some shapes behind the main one
make a new layer behind your border layer
new layer under bottom layer

draw out a smaller shape and fill with a shade of grey
make more shapes and fill

you may want to add noise to some layers
do this by going to filters, noise, hsv noise and apply with the two bottom options set at max

add some text on top. be careful which fonts you use because not all can be used for templates
add text and border to text

save as a .psd
