2. Holding down CTRL + SHIFT, I shifted the box to the right, like the image below:

3. Move the rectangle to the left so that its partly off the page:

4. Add a Layer Style to the rectangle box:

5. Now, create your header text and place it on top of your header. I used Futura font with a drop shadow with an Opacity of 29%, Distance of 2px, and Size of 3px.

6. Create a long rectangle box (without rounded borders) and have it run horizontally across the whole header:
