The lamppost on today’s card reminds of the lampposts that were on the street where my grandmother used to live!
It’s not so much the shape of the lamp, it’s more about the little horizontal post just below the lamp!
I finished my card I thought there was something missing but I couldn’t
Needless to say I realised what it was as soon as I’d
fnished tidying up!
It’s stars, or moon and stars!
I started my card I had a rough idea of what I wanted, and like Topsy,
it just grew!
I started with a card base of Night of Navy Cardstock

reindeer before die cutting them.

The lamp I used for this card is the third oval lamp I’d
made yesterday but didn’t use.
I stamped it in Night of Navy Ink on Whisper White CS and die cut it using the second oval die in the Stitched Shapes Framelits Dies.
Inside the card I added a layer of Whisper White CS, and decorated it using a single tree in Wild Wasabli CS and one stamped reindeer.
I wish you a super weekend, and until tomorrow, happy crafting.
