Adhere the piece of Let It Snow Specialty Designer Series Paper to the front of the Pool Party card.
Unlock the Banner Triple Punch. Slide one short edge of the strip of Flirty Flamingo Cardstock into the punch as far as it will go. Punch.
Mount the "Season's Greetings" sentiment from the Still Scenes Set on Block H. Ink it up with the Real Red Ink Pad. Stamp it on the punched Flirty Flamingo strip so the notch is on the left and the words are close to the notch.
Unlock the Scalloped Tag Topper Punch. Slide one short edge of the 2" x 3-1/4" strip of Shaded Spruce Cardstock into the punch as far as it will go. Punch. Leave the punch unlocked.
Slide one short edge of the strip of Pool Party Cardstock into the unlocked Scalloped Tag Topper Punch as far as it will go. Punch.
Mount the small groupings of dots and snowflakes image from the Still Scenes Set on Block A. Ink it up with the Coastal Cabana Ink Pad. Stamp it all over the top 3/4" of the Pool Party tag punch out.
Pick out the group of three pine trees die from the Snow Globe Scenes Dies. Put it on top of the 2" x 2" Shaded Spruce square on a platform on your cutting and embossing tool so you'll cut out the two trees that are overlapping. Run through the tool. Use the paper-piercing tool on the Take Your Pick to remove the pieces if needed.
Cut the two pine trees that are overlapping from the rest of the cut out by cutting off the bottom of the trunks.
Adhere the two trees that are overlapping cut out to the right side of the stamped Pool Party tag so the bottoms of the trunks are about 3/4" from the bottom of the tag.
Pick out the large bear and small bear dies from the Snow Globe Scenes Dies. Put them both on top of the strip of Whisper White Cardstock on a platform on your cutting and embossing tool. Make sure the dies do NOT overlap. Run through the tool. Use the paper-piercing tool on the Take Your Pick to remove the pieces if needed.
Adhere the small bear cut out to the bottom left side of the Pool Party tag.
Adhere the large bear cut out to the bottom right side of the Pool Party tag so the back of the bear covers the bottoms of the tree trunks. The large bear's chin may overlap the top of the small bear's head just a bit.
WITHOUT ADHERING, layer the Pool Party tag on top of the Shaded Spruce tag.
Cut a 4" piece of the Whisper White 5/8" Polka Dot Tulle Ribbon and a 9" piece of the Whisper White Solid Baker's Twine.
Slide the Polka Dot Tulle Ribbon through the tops of the tags and get it even. Tie the ribbon in place using the baker's twine tied in a small bow. Trim the ends of the ribbon at angles and trim the ends of the baker's twine.
Adhere the Shaded Spruce layer of the tags to the front of the card on the right side at a very slight angle so the bottom right corner of the tag almost touches the bottom of the designer paper and the right edge of the tag is about 3/4" from the right edge of the card.
Adhere the punched sentiment banner to the front of the card so it overlaps the bottom of the Shaded Spruce tag and the notched ends almost touch the left edge of the designer paper.
Adhere the Pool Party tag in place so it is at a slight angle to the Shaded Spruce tag and covers the right end of the sentiment banner.
Pick out an assortment of 7 sequins from the Snowflake Sequins using the putty tip of the Take Your Pick tool. Use small dots of Fine-Tip Glue Pen or Multipurpose Liquid Glue to adhere the sequins randomly to the top of the Pool Party tag and the sentiment banner. The larger iridescent sequins may need to be adhered using a squished Mini Glue Dot.
