How To Guide - Step 1

Remove your chosen painted mount from the Winter Magic Slim Line pack. Trim a piece of card the same width as the mount, place the die that cuts the TOP of the word Joy, towards the top of the card and run it through your machine. Now decide how far up the painted mount you wish your snow drift word to sit and trim to the required length. 

Alternatievly you can make the card bigger than required and trim everything to size, once you have completed the snow drift element. Try both ways and see which you prefer.
