For this I took a DL card and cut it to form the shape of a Christmas cracker. I then cut the middle section of the front away from the back and cut vertically down the centre of the card front. I then scored vertically through the half-way point of each half of the card. The two end quarters of the card I glued together and the middle sections folded back to form doors.
I covered the front of the card with red paper, tied twine round each fold (the door hinge) and used buttons as door handles. House mice taken from Joanna Sheen's Happy Days House Mouse Designs set and coloured using Promarkers were used to decorate the front of the doors. Merry Christmas peel offs were added to the ends.
The inside image is from Joanna Sheen's Christmas set of House Mouse Designs. Again I used Promarkers to colour it and also scattered straw distress ink for the firelight. I then mounted it onto red mirri card before attaching it to the card.
I would like to enter this into the following challenges:
Joanna Sheen - button it up!

Penny Black and More - anything goes
Lisa B. Designs - Christmas theme
