I did a card with this stamp for halloween and wanted to do one similar for Christmas so I ordered the stamp that has the saying. Since I didn't read the dimensions of the stamp, I found when it came that it was smaller. So I cut the saying so I could make it fit around the bigger image, which I wanted to use. I had to cut the Santa also as he was from a stamp that had other things on it. The window is cut and raised and the cats and shelf are cut and raised again as are the ribbons. The snow was a stamp from Sonlight Impressions and it was stamped with white craft and then white embossing powder. The cats and ledge were paperpieced with dp.
