by the rusty iron lamp post

The mannequin from Tim Holtz's Sewing Room Sizzix Bigz die can be decorated in so many ways.  It is suited to altered art and greeting cards alike.  The new die Holiday Lamppost is another similar die.  The die cuts all the details beautifully.  The holly and berries can be cut ... or not.
I created a mantlepiece decoration on super heavy black cardboard using the lamp post as the focal piece.  Marisa was interested in seeing it used in a sample, perhaps a card and my mind went lamppost --> light --> gas flame --> flickering LED tealight, got one of those! Well four actually.
In the photo you can just see the tealight flame through the lamp housing.
  The next sample will be less about the holiday season and more about a lamp in a garden, white picket fence with red roses. A die that is not just for Christmas!
