When I want instant gratification on a project, I usually go for a tag. Since it doesn't have to fit in an envelope like a card, I can get away with any size [usually based on the scraps I have] and adding dimensional elements. :)
I started with a piece of packaging cardboard. I trimmed some Graphic 45 patterned paper and adhered to the front and back of the cardboard.Then I distressed the edges.
I added some packaging ribbon to the tag and secured it with a brad. Then I applied Golden Glass Bead Gel with The Crafter's Workshop stencil. While that was drying, I picked out my embellishments.
When the glass bead gel dried, I applied Daler Rowney gold paint over the raised surfaces. The last step was to embellish.
I left some space on the tag so that I could write a personalized message for the recipient.
