 Step 1: Die cut the 3rd largest nested picot square on regular parchment paper using the Nested Squares Picot dies. Emboss the double outline from the matching Nested Picot Squares Groovi plate using the 1mm embossing ball tool (or Groovi No.1).

Step 2: Emboss the floral design, tag and a rectangle outside the tag from the Tina’s Daisy Frame & Dandelion Tag plate using the Pergamano 1.5mm embossing ball tool (or Groovi No.2) for the circles and the rest of the design using the Pergamano 1mm embossing ball tool (or Groovi No.1).

Step 3: Emboss the rectangle panel from the Tina’s Geo Layering Rectangles plate using the Pergamano 1mm embossing ball tool (or Groovi No.1).

Step 4: Emboss the greeting from the Nested Scallops Squares Extension plate using the Pergamano 1mm embossing ball tool (or Groovi No.1). Freehand emboss in the circles using the Pergamano 1.5mm embossing ball tool (or Groovi No.2)

Step 5: Still working on the back, colour the tag and sections in the rectangle panel with Perga Liner B8 and B11 and blend with Dorso oil.

Step 6: Once the oil has evaporated and the work is completely dry, on the back, colour the leaves and flower centre with Perga Colours Exclusive No.16 and between the double outlines with Perga Colours Exclusive No.26 as seen in the photo. Let the colouring dry otherwise the colour will smudge.

Step 7: From the front, perforate inside the leaves, triangles and tear drops on the bottom of the tag using the Pergamano bold 2-needle perforating tool. Picot cut between all the perforation using parchment scissors or Perga cutter.

Step 8: On Indian Summer Designer Paper, die cut the 2nd largest nested picot square and on white card the largest nested picot square using the Nested Squares Picot dies. Add a little sparkle on the card using a mapping pen, sticky ink and Perga Glitter.

To Finish: Mount all the pieces using brads and stick this on 8″x8″ folded white card. Use mini glue dots to stick a bow and sequins to the card.
