'Santa Stop Here door' hanger

Hi folks! My new job is keeping me very busy at the moment. So much to learn and I've got to do it quickly. I am really enjoying it and my new colleagues are lovely, I am thrilled to report.
Today I am sharing the Christmas Door hanger that I made with the most gorgeously rotund jolly Father Christmas image that I have seen in ages. He's from Joanna Sheen's, Giordano Christmas 'Our Family' rubber stamp set.
I cut a rectangle of deep wine thick cardstock. I sprayed it with cosmic shimmer mists. I added a panel of Christmas Holly paper that I have had in my stash for years. I think it's by Tim Coffey but do correct me if I'm wrong. I used my Nestabilities Circle die to cut the Circle aperture. I added some knots of sheer wine ribbon. I used a small scrap of microflute card, cut into a circle and used on the bottom left corner of the door hanger. I stamped the image and coloured with Copic Markers. I cut it out and added some snow tex to the furry bits. I sprinkled some glitter onto the snow tex white it was still wet. The letters are cut from Gold mirri card and is Go-Kreate alphabet (London). The holly leaves are cut using Quickutz dies and the berries are flat backed beads.
Have a fabulous weekend!
Ciao for now
