You're a Lifesaver

Hi there!  Today's card is one that I created a week or two ago for a Splitcoast CAS challenge - to use white on white.  I was happy with the end result of this card but felt like it was maybe too much for a CAS card so I ended up going with this one but this sweet stamp from The Cat's Pajamas is too cute not to share!

I started by die cutting two tags, using my Tim Holtz tag die, and then I embossed them with this fun swirl embossing folder (kinda like waves, right??)  The stamp set, Aye Aye Captian, contains the bunny, great sentiment, and the tiny lifesavers...aren't they so cute?  And they perfectly fit the hole on the tag!

Once the tags were attached, and joined with a piece of twine, (BTW...I found this great tag idea in a recent CARDS issue), I stamped Captian Bunny on a piece of cardstock, colored him with Copics, and cut him out (attached with foam tape).  Then the sentiment was added by using a paper banner!

Enjoy and check out TCP's stamps...they're super fun!

I love the white on white embossing with the life rings as the tag holes. Clever girl!!!

Kim, this is just so, so's CAS in my book with all the white, but I just love the tag idea with the lifesaver's tied together!
