Engraved Embossed Snowflake Ornament Tag with Infinity Engraving LLC

 Hello and Merry Christmas!  Todays project is a fun, easy and versatile tag that can be as elaborate or as simple as you want it to be.  It's also completely customize-able!  Change up the colors and stamps and you'd have something totally different.  So have fun experimenting and trying things out. 

I started with a Manilla tag and did some ink dipping, drying thoroughly between each layer.  If there is any moisture left in the tag, the stamping will blur out and you will lose the crisp edges. After that, I added the sheet music stamp in random spots and let that dry.  If the sheet music isn't dry, the white embossing powder will stick to it and you'll lose the intricacy of the snowflake stamp.  Then, I heat embossed the snowflake swirls using white pigment ink and glittery white embossing powder.  After that was heat set, I added more blue around the edges with an ink blending tool. 

Next is the die cut chipboard snowflake.  Cover the die cut with embossing ink and cover with embossing powder.  Tap off the excess and heat set.  Repeat this process, adding another layer of embossing powder.  Using the same sheet music stamp we used earlier, ink it up with embossing ink and have it standing by.  Add another layer of embossing powder and as soon as it's completely melted, stamp the sheet music stamp into it and lift off.  Add the die cut snowflake and die cut sentiment to the tag using liquid glue and the tag is complete.  Here is the link to the video tutorial on my YouTube channel if you'd like to see the process from start to finish and my supply list is below.
