Anything but a card...
I love this project! I knew when I saw this lantern cut file from Sandra's Scrap Shops Lantern Pattern #25 it would be a perfect partner to my new Penny Black Ragged Angel cling stamp.
This is a large stamp-4 inches tall but doesn't she looks so petite next to this lamp post lantern? The embosssed sentiment Merry Christmas is a cling stamp-Retro Christmas Script from Stampendous.
I added a 2 inch ring to the top of the lantern cut from brushed silver paper and also added a couple holly branches cut with my Silhouette as well. The snow was glittered before attaching and I also used a shimmery liquid pearls under the window panes. The window paper is polka dot vellum.
Isn't she just the sweetest thing???
Inside the lantern I added a battery operated flame candle. This one was black and glittery(a Halloween mark down purchase!) so it worked perfectly!
All lit up in the dark!
