Fussy cut the Santa image. Using Bearly Art® Precision Glue adhere Sparkling Cloud Flocking to the fur on Santa's suit and hat as shown.
Apply a dot of Nuvo® Crystal Drops - Bright Gold on each of the ornaments on the tree. Let Dry!
I found this beautiful flocked snow scene paper at Hobby Lobby and reminded me of nature's beauty in winter time. Cut a 4-1/2"x5-1/2" rectangle of The Paper Studio® Flocked Christmas Trees - Foil being careful of the tree locations. Cut a horizon and fussy cut a couple tree tops as shown.
Fussy Cut a couple extra trees from some of the extra paper.
Cut a 4-3/4"x6-3/4" rectangle of the Gold Foil cardstock, center and adhere to the 5"x7" cardbase with the fold on the left.
Cut a 4-1/2"x4-1/2" square of the reminisce® -Magical Night for the sky.
Align and adhere the sky and the horizon together to make a 4-1/2"x6-1/2" rectangle.
Adhere a fussy cut tree at the horizon line to the left as shown.
Apply Foam® Tape on the backside of Santa and the double fussy cut trees for dimension.
Adhere Santa amoungst the trees as shown.
Adhere the double fussy cut trees in the lower right, overlapping Santa's foot. Adhere a star sequin to the top of Santa's tree.
Center and adhere the card front to the cardbase as shown.
Using a die sentiment, cut one of the Gold Foil cardstock and adhere across the sky.
For that special touch as an optional decoration, I like to use some of the leftover papers to make a design with a name plaque and adhere it to the backside of the cardbase.
I hope you enjoyed our frolic with Santa's Gift today!
