My Favourite Retiring Embellishment

My Favourite Retiring Embellishment

My blog today is about My Favourite Retiring Embellishment which is today’s Stamping With Friends Blog Hop Theme – Retiring Product. Today I decided to make a double whammy project! A lovely gift tag addition that also doubles as a Christmas Tree Decoration. Wouldn’t this look nice around the neck of a lovely wine bottle too!

The products used are linked further down this blog post.

Product List

Plus a wooden hanging disc like the one in the image below.

  • Start off by running the edges of your wooden disc through your embossing ink pad, sprinkle on your gold powder and heat set
  • Next you want to cover the reverse of your snowflake with emboss ink (not the iridescent side, but the plain white side), sprinkle on your gold powder and heat set Tip: be sure you use your tweezer tool to avoid burning your fingers
  • Using your pearlescent speciality paper, rub your emboss buddy across top before stamping your chosen letters with your embossing ink, sprinkle your gold powder over and heat set. Punch out once cooled down.

Now to pretty up your project

  • Attach your embossed gold snowflake to your disc using Stampin’ Seal
  • Adhere your letters to desired placement on disc using dimensionals
  • Our festive pearls are perfect for this decoration and I had to use the gold of course!
  • Finish your project by attaching co-ordinating ribbon or twine through the hole in the disc
