This little sheep and bunny tail look awesome with some liquid applique from the holiday mini catalog. I have some difficulty with the slit punch. If anyone can offer advice as to where do I punch the blue to fit the white in, I would appreciate it. I had to keep shaving some white off until it fit in the slits.

Sweet critters!!!...Your card is sooooo adorable! I love the liquid applique! How fun! I have difficulty with the slit punch, too...and usually only punch one side so that I don't have to worry about a perfect fit. My Faith and Hope set is on order and will be here soon!

There is a trick to using the slit punch. There are markings on the side of the punch. You need to use a sharpie to make markings on the metal part of the bottom of your punch (lining up with markings on the side of the punch). To figure out where to punch, place the cs piece that you want "held" by the slit punch on it's mat piece (make sure the mat piece is a 1/2" larger to accomodate the slits) and mark it lightly with a pencil. Then take your punch and line up that mark with the sharpie marks on the bottom side of your punch. Then punch away. It should be perfect. If I totally confused you, do a forum search on "slit punch". There was a large thread about this very topic.
Hey thanks! I tried the slit punch with your advice. Worked perfectly! I saw those markings on the side, but wasn't paying attention enough to realize they were different than the edge of the silver metal. I see it now. Thanks again!
