    How to make

    Take a piece of black card and trim so that it covers two thirds of your square card blank. Emboss with the Quattro Mask using your die cutting machine then rub over it lightly with the Pearlescent Sky Blue ink pad to highlight the raised pattern. Distress the edges with scissors (run the blade carefully along the edge several times to rough it up), and then adhere it to a card blank. Cover the join with ribbons, and add a bow with a button.

    For the tag embellishment, take two sizes of white tag, and stamp the sentiment on the top one using the Black Versafine ink pad. Using Pearlescent Sky Blue Ink, stamp the flowers from the Dandelion Dreams set, randomly around the tags. Add a few leaves in Pearlescent Thyme and then add peacock liquid pearls to the flower centres. To finish off, add a few wooden pegs and buttons.
