Say "Hello" A5 card.

I have been having a few difficulties lately on my card creations FB page uploading descriptions etc. the follow card and tag I have writen a description twice and I'm not doing it again lol, the description below is the description I gave PaperMill Direct on our Design Team Facebook page. 
 I have given links where I could. So there is a link for every PaperMill Direct product Iv used and a link for every Stix2 Anything product Iv used. I have even included a link to the Hunkydory page with the "With Love" clear stamp Iv used. 

I love to see cards and tags for gifts coordinate, whether it's birthday cards and gifts or wedding cards and gifts. It's lovely to hand over your gift and card and it all ties in together. 

 First off I have this A5 card using PMD promotion card for this week - bright pink but it is a sort of 2 in one. It is a card but the main focal point on the front of the card is actually a tag that can be removed. So when they open their gift, the tag could be attached to the gift with your message on the back then once opened, they can take the tag and place it inside the front pocket of the card once they have opened their card. I personally like the idea that the card is part of the gift and the gift is part of the tag, it's like a little round circle when it comes to gift giving. I have used 3 main core colours - the new promotional Bright pink card, plain Black card and White hammered card. The main tag is able to stay in place using bookmark plastic holder by Stix2. The main card design has been made using 
Sue Wilsons die collection, 2 of them infact. The background die cut design is from her Scandinavian collection and the sentiment Hello die is a stand alone die. The card has been made as a birthday card but it's a lovely way to just send someone a card to say hello and that your thinking of them.
