Winner and Thanks for Everything

a few post ago I did a Christmas card
from Papertrey Ink
they also have a stamp set
that matches the dies
I rarely used either I could never get them
stamped straight until I got the
this is how I use it to get the
sentiment stamped perfectly
first start by cutting out your dies
and keep the negative piece of paper
next I put a scrap piece of paper on the Misti
and center the stamp as closely aligned as I can
if the anything is off you can move the top
layer slightly but DON'T move the bottom
piece as that is exactly where the stamp will be
Place the die cut in the open spot
and stamp
Winner of the
Saturday January 2nd
Show it off  Saturday Linky Party
chosen by
I love the colors in this card.
The delicate white snowflake looks amazing
on the background of blue and the texture of the
distressed edges is a wonderful contrast.
The droplets look like a halo surrounding
the snowflake. Beautiful card!
