Holiday Lamppost Card

Ever since I first spotted the Sizzix Holiday Lamppost die, I've wanted to buy it and design a card around it. Finally, I ordered it from my favorite scrapbook store. Of course due to the holly leaf on the front of the lamppost the December holiday cards are a natural for its' use. Without their addition a scenic would work well too.

I used it for an unusual holiday card, with the addition of a tinted piece of filler plastic for the lighted area.
