Pick out the fancy top tag die from the Tailor Made Tags Dies that cuts out a tag that is 1-1/2" wide. Put it on top of the large Polished Pink rectangle on a platform on your Stampin' Cut & Emboss Machine. Run through the machine.
As you are ready to stamp using the Always In My Heart Set, place the cardstock on the Stampin' Pierce Mat. Using the mat will help you get a cleaner image each time you stamp. Put a piece of paper (Grid Paper works great) on top of the Mat to protect it from ink.
Mount the outline, open flower with stamens image on Block A. Ink it up with the Polished Pink Ink Pad. Stamp it all over the Polished Pink tag cut out. Remember to re-ink the stamp each time. Change the orientation of the stamp a little each time. Let some of the images go off the edges of the tag.
Mount the "the best kind of friend is the kind like you" sentiment from the Always In My Heart Set on Block H. Ink it up with the Polished Pink Ink Pad. Stamp it near the top in the center of the white strip, leaving room to cut it out.
Pick out the fancy top tag die from the Tailor Made Tags Dies that cuts out a tag that is 1-1/8" wide. Put it on top of the stamped sentiment on a platform on your Stampin' Cut & Emboss Machine so the sentiment is centered side to side in the die and is near the top of the die with the top of the die being on the left side. Run through the machine.
Adhere the sentiment tag cut out to the top of the Polished Pink stamped tag cut out at a slight angle so the holes in the tops of the tags line up.
Peel the protective backing off of the Adhesive Sheets strip. Adhere the Adhesive Sheets strip to one side of the small Polished Pink strip. Be sure to leave the other protective backing in place for now.
Pick out the strip of four circles with small circles inside them die from the Tailor Made Tags Dies. Put it on top of the strip of Polished Pink on a platform on your Stampin' Cut & Emboss Machine so the pink side of the cardstock is facing up. Run through the machine. Use the Take Your Pick and Take Your Pick Die Brush Tip to remove the pieces.
Carefully remove the protective backing from one of the small circle with circle in the center cut outs. Adhere it to the top of the layered tag cut outs so it is centered over the hole in the top of the tags. If desired, carefully remove the protective backing from another one of the small circle with circle in the center cut outs. Adhere it to the top of the layered tag cut outs on the back side so it is centered over the hole in the top of the tags.
Pick out the set of 3 outline flowers die from the Floral Heart Dies. Put it on top of the piece of Shimmer Vellum on a platform on your Stampin' Cut & Emboss Machine so the shimmery side of the vellum is facing up and you'll cut out the rose looking flower and the open flower with stamens. Run through the machine. Use the Take Your Pick and Take Your Piece Die Brush Tip to remove the pieces.
Use a thin line of Multipurpose Liquid Glue or Fine-Tip Glue Pen on the back of the flower vellum cut outs to adhere them to the layered tags just below the sentiment on the white tag. They will overlap the pink tag a bit and should touch each other as shown.
Use the mini spatula on the Take Your Pick to carefully peel up 2 large Polished Pink jewels from a sheet of 2021-2023 In Color Jewels making sure that you get the adhesive backings as well. Adhere them to the centers of the shimmer vellum flower cut outs.
Cut a length of the Polished Pink 3/8" Open Weave Ribbon big enough to wrap around your gift and tie it.
Wrap the ribbon around the gift. Tie a half knot, slide one end of the ribbon through the reinforced hole in the top of the tag. Finish tying the knot in the ribbon. Trim the ends of the ribbon.
