    No worries.
    It works; just that it's a bit jumbled-up.

    Your small icon layer isn't square so the system forces it to be square, making it unreadable.
    I'd go just for the icon, also for small previews, makes it simple.

    GIMP:
    Do you have this plugin?

    Probably because I originally wanted text on the folder, then thought against it, and did something wrong in GIMP(I'm still a novice with it)
    This is what you have:

    Text is on a separate layer, needs to be placed properly and fused with the main folder layer.
    My guess is it took the text, as is, as a low-res version of the same icon: making it a multi-layered icon.

    I removed that text layer and posted the fixed version in the original post.
    It took some trial and error, but I got it.
    After getting rid of the layer I had to rebuild my Icon cache, as it kept showing the fudged version, even after replacing the bad icon.

    For the icon you'll need iconify separately:
    Create Windows icon from image | GIMP Plugin Registry

    In your GIMP folder:
    share\gimp\2.0\scripts

    ...Or in your user gimp share, but I recommend the first one.

    Search for *.scm should reveal where other files are installed.
