     Step one: Cut/emboss In'Spire Wellies in light blue paper.

    Step two: Cut/emboss Wellies "insert" in same paper.
                    Use Tool in One to separate paper from the die piece.

               Step three: Assemble Wellies.

Step four: Cut/emboss Umbrella in red/white patterned paper.

Step Five: Cut/Emboss one of the 3 Umbrella inserts in white cardstock and adhere with glue ,as shown.
