Quick Gift Tag

My husband wanted some gift tags for some small gifts he was giving work-friends.  Of course, I opted for "faster, simpler and easier."  Here's what I came up with:  (I even put the stamps all on the same block, so I only had to stamp once!)

I used the (retired) stamp set Chillin' (love those polar bears!) and the "To" and "From" from Gift of Love.  You could use any stamp that had a little animal or something.

I also sponged around the edges in Blush.  Spring Iris would have been pretty, too.  It's subtle and you can't really see it in the picture, but it's there...

To apply the glitter I squirted some Liquid Glass on a scrap paper.  Then I "picked some up" and spread it with the flat side of the toothpick where I wanted the glitter to stick.  I dipped it the card in the glitter and shook off the excess.  I could have used Glitz Glitter Gel, but I am impatient and don't like to wait for the stuff to dry.  Liquid Glass dries faster.
