Snowglobe Snowflakes Shaker Winter/Xmas Card

Have been enjoying maker shaker style cards.

First I used a Martha Stewart edge punch for the top part of the sketch but the punch broke. A piece of the hard plastic on the side of the punch broke off and the punch will not work properly now. I had a MS punch break some time ago & MS replaced it after I phoned them, photographed the damaged one & mailed the damaged one back to them with a postage paid label they emailed me. The edge punch is an older one I've had for a long time so I do not if it is available anymore. I'm going to see if Michaels has it and if they do see if they will allow me to exchange/replace it. If not I'll phone MS and see what I can do. 

Update 1/9/16:
Michaels had the punch, doily lace, on clearance $6.99. Michaels gave me the exchange replacement at no cost when I gave them the broken one. The broken one was the style that did not fold up on the ends and the new one folds up so I knew mine was older. Yeah!
