I began with the Starburst Shapes Cutting Files background and then added my elements. Remember that when you are seeing a cutting file, think that you can often take the pieces apart to use separately. Just as I pulled the stack of gifts out of Santa's hands in the Jolly St. Nick Cutting Files (used one Santa and the gifts from the other Santa option). You'll see what I mean with the cutting file image at the end of the post.
For all you alcohol marker fans, don't forget that you can add detail to your die cuts using your marker. I added some grey shading to the white on Santa with my markers. As well as using a thin line of glitter to outline the white trim of his clothing.
