Through the Keyhole - Christmas Door

This card was supposed to be for my blog hop on the coming Thursday but I just couldn't wait to show it to you, I did the background with an airbrush, thats a first for me and I was thrilled with the ease of use.
So on to the card.
So who do you think lives in a house like this?
I adore the Door with Wreath image by Mo manning it just totally depicts Christmas to me. I coloured the image with Copic markers then cut around the door so that it opens up, to see who is inside you will need to read the full posting.


Once the door is opened just look who is inside! Santa? isn't it?

I added the Santa Guy behind the door image then cut around the door so that it can be opened.

I think the poor little soul will be traumatised seeing Santa without his beard ha ha.

Fabulous card and just love the idea of the open door, so much more interesting than a plain flat card. Your colouring in is as usual just perfect.
