PTI Make It Monday #149 - Glitter Embellishments, take 2

When I did my first project for this challenge, located here, the other night I didn't think I had colored glitter so I used clear and colored it with Copics which worked great but something was nagging at me that I had color glitter somewhere so I went searching and low and behold I found it.

Since Florida is just now starting to have colder weather (I am not bragging about it; it just happens to be true) I have been in the mood for hot chocolate.  I filled a mason jar up with a mix to give away and created this tag using Heart-2-Heart #1 die and stamp set.  Looks like I need to add some more marshmallows to this jar.  I will be printing out the mixing instructions soon on the printer and adhering it to the back of the tag.

The cardstock is Recollections Kraft stamped with PTI Background Basics: Text Styles in Classic Kraft Ink.  The die is cut with the die from the set three times from PTI Vintage Cream cardstock.  I stamped the cup in Dark Chocolate ink on all three.  The first is the base.  The second one I cut down to just the cup/lid and used 1/8" Scor-Tape to create stripes.  I covered the whole thing with strips of tape leaving the backing on the top side, then I pulled it off one at a time and alternated between Martha Stewart Brownstone, Fire Opal and Yellow Gold glitter.  I backed it by running it through my Xyron X sticker maker and attached it to the base.  Then I fussy cut just the cup lid from the third cup, used the X again and adhered that on top.  I popped it up on the tag.  The sentiment is from Simon Says Stamps Love This set stamped in Versafine Onyx Black ink.  The tag top was rounded with my corner chomper and the hole was punched with my Crop-a-dile.  The string is Lawn Fawn Gold Sparkle Hemp Cord.
Thanks for looking!  Comments are much appreciated.
