White cardstock to print digital background - the step back ground was printed twice
 First I added the Bugaboo bear trio digital and the Bugaboo pumpkin to the Bugaboo Step background digital and made a print out
 I removed the Bears and Pumpkin and re-printed the step background
After coloring, I fussy cut around the Bears on the steps with the pumpkin first printing and taped it to the second print off of the background steps
Coloring Mediums - Ink, Pencils, Markers

Spellbinders Scallop Rectangle die/embossing used to cut out the entire background after it was finished - Cuttlebug Machine

Glitter red gel on the hat and clear gel on the brims of the hats, presents, and the pumpkin for "The Frost is on the Pumpkin" Idea.

Sizzix Snowflake Die - white glitter gel and clear gem added - this was cut twice - slid under the background and then another put on top
