Hello Blogger Friends! Thanks for taking the time to stop and visit with the Charmed Life Blog. Can you believe it is the last day of 2016? This year just flew by, well for me anyway. Looking forward to see what 2017 has in store. We have no plans for tonight so a quiet evening will be in the works for us.
Yesterday (Dec 30) we went to the Benedum Center in Pittsburgh for a performance of Cirque Dreams Holidaze. We really enjoyed it and had great seats in the 3rd row from the stage. It was here for 2 days only and I purchased tickets back in October as a birthday present for my hubby. If it comes to your city at Christmas, it definitely is worth going to see.
Now onto my card for today. This is another of my Christmas cards. I made several of these using a template from Just For Fun Stamps and recycled Christmas cards. You can see the others here and here. The layout is from the sketch challenge #622 on Splitcoaststampers.
On this card I recycled a Christmas card I received last year and created a new card. I used a friend's template from Just For Fun Stamps to cut the image in 4 pieces and used some postage stamp scissors for a fancy edge.
In addition to the template for cutting your image, my friend also has this faux postage background stamp that stamps a background to lay your images in once they are cut. It's also from JFF Stamps.
I layered my snowman image with a mirror red cardstock. I used some designer paper from the "all is calm" collection by Stampin'-Up that I thought fit well with the snowman theme.
Used a die to cut the paper ribbon and bow also in the red mirror cardstock and added some snowflakes cut in white glitter paper.
Well that's it for me for this post. So until next time......God bless and Happy New Year.
