GIMP is extremely good . A lot of top level image manipulators use GIMP only, so it is absolutely ok.

There are some other programs that I use like photoshop and corel draw .... but those stuff cost a much

This one you are using at present is made with Corel Draw, but the same thing can be done with Photoshop and GIMP, too .

If you are using Photoshop ......
Step 1 : Create a document with transparent background. Draw a rounded rectangle using the respective tool . Click on the white box of the layer in layers pallet , Holding Ctrl key to select the document . Create a new layer , and fill it with any color (you may change it anytime in future).
Attachment 187481

Step 2 : Select > Modify > Contract . Contract by the amount you desire the thickness of the border, apply the contract, and hit delete . You will get the shape of the border.
Attachment 187482

Step 3 : Now the styling . Click on "fx" below layers pallet, and select "blending options" . Apply drop shadow to the extent you want, for coloring, you may do it using color overlay or gradient overlay; and finally, you are to apply bevel and emboss. In the next screenshot, it is a setting of a good bevel and emboss, but you may change the figures to anything at your like, to suit the design.

Nick taught me how to do it corel draw, and I substituted his guidelines for photoshop
