The world is full of magic

Hi everyone

Here I am, hottest day of the year making Christmas cards.......

Just love this sentiment stamp from LOTV conbined with a snowflake it looks fab

here is the card opened out, it is made using a Karen Burniston die called the accordion I have stamped some LOTV images in the panels and a few sentiments.

This is the back, again decorated with LOTV stamps, the paper is frosty Christmas from them too
The stamp is lots of letters from LOTV

The view from above to show how it works

I used spellbinders snowflake dies and the frosty border from memory box

Christmas Magic from Lotv

another angle, this was a very old stamp from the Tatty teddy range

Build a snowman from LOTV

Another angle, I used an XCUT die for the backing on this sentiment

Lots of Letters again by LOTV

Just peeping through you can see carol singing by LOTV 

Just loved these papers they fit together so well, and I inked the edges of them and the white card with Tim Holtz weathered wood distress ink
I am entering this card into the Ribbon Girls Colour Challenge Aqua Turquoise

Also into Penny Black and mores Challenge dies and punches
