    [help needed] Inaccurate mask!

    excellion4

      So I'm using illustrator, and I wanted to like use af fat font, put white snowflakes on it and then put a clipping mask on top of the snowflakes so they wouldn't go outside of the text..

       

      So what did I do..

       

      Type and adjust text, throw flakes I made over them, copy the text layer and put it EXACTLY on the other layer, above the flakes.. (I used MAX zoom + move tool to move it like 0.000 precise on top of it..)

      But when I make it a clipping mask for the flakes, it's totally inaccurate!

      Some letters are okay, but others are REALLY messed up, how can I fix this so that illustrator makes the mask as I want it to?
