Christmas in July


Time for the weekly challenge at Lili’s Little Fairies and this week we want to see your Christmas cards. I know the weather has been gorgeous and Summery but we are nearer to this Christmas than we are to last so if you want to get ahead it's the perfect time to get another card made. I'm sure you must have loads of gorgeous LOTV images to use, I know I am spoilt for choice.
Image - LOTV diecut
Papers - Echo Park Winter Wishes
Gauze - from LOTV 
Christmas tree - Marianne die and white glitter card
Snowflakes - MS punches and glitter card
Other - Stickles and shabby blue frantage

I did have more frantage on the card but I found the heatgun was taking the sticky off the double sided tape and my laters were starting to lift so I had to remove the bits which hadn't already melted and restick my layers. Previously I have only used it on one layer so haven't had this problem.
