My Creative Time's 12 Days of Christmas - Day 7

Happy Wednesday!

Today is day 7 of My Creative Time's 12 Days of Christmas!

If you have arrived from Rosy's blog, then you are on the right track. If you would like to start at the beginning, click here.

Today's project is: Santa's Magic Key!
 So you know the question comes up more often then not... "If we don't have a fireplace, how can Santa leave the presents?" Well, your problem is solved! All you need is Santa's magic key!
 I typed the poem and printed it out on white card stock. I cut it out with My Creative Time's XL Label Die and stamped the boarder with the boarder stamp from the Whimsical Calendar Days Set. I hand cut the red shadow layer. The key is from Tim Holtz's Idea-ology "Word Key's", found at Michael's. You could also use a really old skeleton key... if you can find one.
The font is from Lettering Delights, it is LDJ Christmas Troll.

The poem reads:

Dear Santa,
This magic key works just
for you,  please open the door and
come on through.  Thank you for
coming to our house tonight.  We are
celebrating the birth of Jesus Christ.
Thank you Santa for the gifts you bring.
Thank you Lord for everything!

Here is what it looks like hanging on a door knob! Now Santa has no excuses not to show up on Christmas Eve!

As cute as this is... I can't take credit for it. I found this idea last year, around Christmas time, on Flikr and saved the poem. Unfortunately, I can't find the original link/picture.
