  1. Cut/emboss A2 Valiant Honor using All Dies with Precious Metals Premium Craft Foils Assortment Copper. NOTE: To save foil, nest die templates together – this will not affect the layering.
  2. Cut Perfect Pallet patterned paper (light blue) to 12 x 5″, scoring in the center and fold in half.
  3. Cut/emboss card base using A2 Matting Basics B Die #9 (the smallest die size is #1) – making sure the fold in inside the cutting blade to form card base.
  4. Cut/emboss A2 Matting Basics B Die #5 and #8 using Lovely Layers patterned paper.
  5. Adhere A2 Matting Basics to the coordinating A2 Valiant Honor die cuts using Crafty Foam Tape.
  6. Adhere the layered dies to the card base using double sided tape.
  7. Attach A2 Valiant Honor Die #2 to the base of the top layer using Crafty Foam Tape in the centre and liquid glue at each end.
  8. Apply Shimmer Pico Embellisher to the Resin Embellishments and allow to dry.
  9. Glue the Resin embellishments to the center of the tag.
  10. Attach Baby Bling as shown in the above photo.

Designer Tip: Every layer does not have to be popped up foam tape – alternate using double sided tape and foam tape for a dimensional card that is not too bulky to post.
