Santa Flutter

     This is the last new Flutter set from Art Impressions.  The Santa Flutter SetFor this card I decided to show that you don't have to use this set just in it's flutter design.
     I had started off using it as intended but then changed my mind.  The only change I had to make was to re-stamp the body minus the little dots to mark where you line up the die to punch the holes for the brads.  I just added a tiny bit of post-it where the stamping would be.  That was easier than trying to wipe off the ink without removing it from the rest of the stamp.  
     You will have to fussy cut instead of using the die cause you don't want those holes.  The holes on the other pieces can be easily hidden behind the body.  
     I was happy with the way I had colored Santa's head on my additional pieces so I just cut it out and popped it up on some foam for some dimension.
     For the background I die cut some holly branches from thick cardstock and glued two together for each set.  Then I just glued them down all over the base until I was happy with the coverage.  Lastly I added some red sequins and filled them with Glossy Accents.

Copics Used:
face E00, E11, R20, C00, C2
clothing C00, C2, R27, R46, R37, C4, C6, C8
