Rub on designs are the best because they don't look like stickers and add a bit of elegance tot he project. This Christmas card is just divine. I'm definitely going to use this design to make my own version. I never seem to make a craft just as instructed. I always have to make it my own somehow. That's what makes it so much fun!
