Now if everything looks correct on it, click on the continue button
The next screen will be where you will select the type of card stock you are using. If you do not see the material in your material favorites, click on "browse all materials" to find the weight of cardstock that you are using. For example the white Cardstock I used is medium weight, you will need to select "Medium Weight"..
Once you have Design Space set, you are now ready to prepare your mat. I used a brayer when placing the Cardstock on the mat, this helps in making sure that the paper is adhered to the mat and will help in keeping the paper from ripping or moving when it is being cut.

I also added a foam glue dot behind the sparkler in the middle to help hold it on the card.

There are stars that were cut out with the hat and gnome body

You can use them anywhere on the card. I took craft glue and put dots of glue on the front of the card and added the stars
