This is a simple, paper saving card, as I used the print and cut capabilities of my Silhouette cutter! I love doing this as all the colors of the card can be co-ordinated easily!
I started my design using a swirly tag I snagged from a freebie from the net. I adjusted the two layers and offset them slightly, coloring the background a dark blue, and the top a multi colored polka dot graphic.
I made the wording, offsetting the cut so it could be easily attached to the tag with dimensional adhesive.
Here is how the tag looked on my computer screen before I printed and cut it out:

The card base is a tri-fold that I made welding the tag back to an edge of a rectangle. The solid lines in the picture below are fold lines. I cut it out with a piece of mauve paper that matched the color in the polka dot part of the tag.

Here are all the pieces cut out!

The folded card is 3 1/2 inches square, but could be easily sized to 3 1/2 x 5 inches. I plan to use this card for a gift tag that quite a few people could sign inside.
