I was trying to make one of those "hot cards" and had found these awesome paper napkins to use (the bold flowers!) - - you see, I thought the technique used napkins and didn't realize it was tissue paper!! After A LOT of ironing... I discovered my errors (went back and read more carefully) but you know what -- the napkins stuck just as well as the tissue paper!! So, I made this card with the napkin sample on the top and the tissue paper on the bottom!!

LOVE your napkin, looks like the Big Blossom.
And I usually just use the napkins and not the tissue paper myself anyway...but what I have discovered with the napkins is you need to pull off all the extra "plys" (white layers), so that you're just ironing the printed top layer. And I use the plastic-backed freezer paper with no problems at all, so maybe the "plain" plastic wrap doesn't do as well with the napkin and that's why you had your initial problems? Whatever the case, your end result is very bright and cheery. TFS
