The Joy of Sets Christmas Card Blog Hop 2018

Welcome to The Joy of Sets Christmas Card Blog Hop 2018!  You are visiting Angie McKenzie from the USA.  The Joy of Sets is a closed Facebook group created by the lovely Fiona Whitehead from England.  The group is full of Stampin' Up!® enthusiasts who share the love of all things Stampin' Up! - both old and new.  

This month's theme is Christmas Cards - any company or product - so I am highlighting the card that I created for the JOS Interactive Christmas Card Swap.

Who doesn't love a snowman especially when 
he's decked out in Christmas colors and skating around town?!?

The Hometown Greetings Edgelits Dies made the perfect backdrop for this 
fussy cut skating snowman from Spirited Snowmen.  
The Sliding Door Framelits Dies helped with the glide that was created for him 
to skate through the torn edged snow.  Clear Wink of Stella added the 
right amount of sparkle for the snow scene.

To help hide the sliding mechanism, a boxed in border was created around the edge 
and adhered with liquid glue.  The snow bank was elevated with 
Foam Adhesive Strips which allowed for a smooth glide across the card front.

Here's a birds eye view looking down the front of the card.

A picture taken near a window helped accentuate the dimensions 
of the town backdrop of this fun, interactive card.

The inside sentiment was surrounded by snowflakes to remind you 
of the snowy theme from the card front.

Here are the specific items that were used to create and color this card:

  6. Such a lovely card Angie, I love these cute little snowmen

    1. Thanks, Pia, I'm rather partial to them myself - LOVE snowmen!!! :)

  7. What an amazing card Angie!! This snowman is made for slider cards and I love how you've layered the die-cuts behind. Fabulous!!

  8. Love the depth and the layers on this card. As a fellow 'insider' decorator the inside is fab!

  9. I love the card and to have the snowman skating across the front is just spectacular! But I especially love the bottom of the inside where it shows just the ends of the cap and scarf. That made me laugh out loud!!

    1. So glad you enjoyed the card, Gale! And you've made me smile knowing that there had to be a big ol' smile on your face when you laughed! :)
