Sun & Pelican Sea Tag

Created this Tag with a Sun & Pelican Sea theme.

Used Cuttlebug D'Vine Swirl embossing folder. Some time ago I slit the top so the tag could fit thru. Have done the sliting of the embossing folders many times and it allows a tag to be embossed w/ a non-embossed edge at top & bottom.
Have had this Inkadinkado Sun stamp & Studio 112 Pelican stamp for awhile & think this is first time using the Pelican stamp. Stamped the Pelican twice; partially on a scrap piece of brown cardstock that had been embossed with woodgrain embossing folder and was in my scrap pile. Fussy cut them out. Paper pieced the Pelican & wood pier. Added a scrap piece/last piece of fish ribbon. Used Wink of Stella clear pen on Sun's sunglasses & Pelican's eye. Used Glossy accents on Pelican's beak.

Stamped Hero Arts sentiment that I had cut into pieces some time ago so it fits perfectly in tag space. Punched it out with a Stampin' Up tag punch.

Added Sailboat ribbon.
