Winter Cabin Ink Dipped Christmas Tag with Infinity Engraving LLC

Hey y'all!  Todays project is a Christmas Tag featuring chipboard snowflakes from Infinity Engraving LLC.  I make a variety of these tags every year and give them as gifts to use as Christmas ornaments.  I try to personalize them, especially for the kids, and you can make them as elaborate or as simple as you want.  I start these with an ink dipping technique and heat dry them.  Expect it to curl up as you heat dry it; it will flatten back out as it dries.  If it's still cool to the touch, it's not dry yet.  Having the tag completely dry is important before moving on to the next step.  If you stamp on cardstock that isn't quite dry, the image can blur out and lose the crisp edges.  After stamping the cabin, I stamped and heat embossed my sentiment.  If the tag was still wet or had any moisture anywhere, the embossing powder would stick where we didn't want it and that can ruin the project.  Here is the link to the video tutorial on my YouTube channel if you want to see how to make this project and learn the techniques I used.  My supply list is below.
