I am new to map making and new to the Guild so I apologize in advance for what may be a very obvious question.

I started making a map and was making progress but have run into some trouble in creating a border. I have read over a couple of the tutorials I found here and have been trying to add in inner glow to my borders using Layer Style in Photoshop. My problem is that after creating a new layer for the layer style when I try I try to apply the inner glow to a selected area on the layer the inner glow appears on the perimeter of the layer. Now, I wouldn't be bothering you if I was just unable to get the inner glow where I needed it, but I was able to get the inner glow to apply on two selected areas on two different layers - I just don't know how. Now I am trying to apply an inner glow on a third selected area, but can't seem to get it to work, the inner glow keeps appearing on the perimeter of the layer. Any ideas on what I am doing wrong?
