Tropical Chic Tag Card

Hi everyone and welcome!

 If you saw my last post then you saw the card I made using the Tropical Chic Stamp  and Die Set with my favorite DSP  Feels Like Frost.  When I cut my paper down to fit on my card it left me with a 2" X 6" piece of paper. Well..... I hate wasting paper (I may be a bit of a hoarder lol).

I found an awesome sketch that I thought  would be able to let me use the leftover piece and make another card using the same items, but in a different way!

 I used a card base of Pretty Peacock and added a layer of silver foil, then added a layer of   Whisper White card stock  that I embossed using the subtle EF. .I cut my strip of paper down to 4 1/2" and used my Delightful Tag Topper and punched the top to make it into a tag. Then I used my Pretty peacock ink and a dauber to add color onto my tag. After stamping the leaves and flower , I die cut them out and added them to my card along with some silver leaves to add some more interest . Instead of wasting the sheet of foil that you were only going to see the edges of ..I die cut my embellishments out of it lol...(I did mention I was a hoarder didn't I? )

This is the finished card. What do you think?
