Step 1: Getting the templates

The first step is getting the templates and import them into Corel Draw.
A snowflake can be pretty complex to draw from scratch, especially if you are not so good on drawing, and I am not!
This is where some "creativity" and "resourcefulness" comes handy!
I was surfing on Epilog website and I noticed a link: "Sample Club" and there you can find lots of useful templates and ideas!!!
Among them, here's the ones we will be using: Snowflakes
Follow the instructions and open the files in Corel Draw: We will be using the "sc_snowflakes_glitter.cdr" and "sc_snowflakes_wood.cdr"
The files are already in .cdr format, so, no conversion will be necessary

Step 3 appears to have some improper formatting. It looks like you have 200 line breaks. Does this appear in your edit box? You may want to have a look at that.
