To create your mask, you need to use the top layer (the original trimmed image) to create an outline. You can use the magic wand tool for this, and just click on the transparent background, and use >Select>Inverse so that you are selecting the actual object, not the background. Depending on how clean your outline is, you can also use >Select>Modify>Expand or Contract to clean the outline. When you have created the outline, turn the top layer off, and make the bottom layer active. You will now have a selection outline which will be used to trim inside the boundary of the merged layer on the bottom.
