25 Days of Christmas - Santa


Welcome to Erica's Craft Room
25 Days of Christmas,
with 25 Cricut projects a day.
Don't forget to stop by Erica's blog to see 24 more projects today....
and every day in December.

I made a Santa key to share with you today.
I started with a shadowbox and a white Bazzill Bling mat. I used foam tape to mount the green frame that is 1 1/2" wide. Then I used foam tape again to mount the striped frame which is 1" wide.

I colored the Tim Holtz key using watermelon alcohol ink. All I had to do was drop the ink directly on the metal. It took about 24 hours for the ink to fully dry. I used Pop Dots to mount the key to the white mat.

The trees are cut from Winter Frolic at 4".

I told my daughter that this is a special key, that only Santa can get out of the box, and use to get inside our house. She cannot wait for him to come to our house tonight!
