  • Stamp Set: Brightly Lit Christmas Bundle (Brightly Lit Christmas stamp set + Christmas Lamppost Thinlits Dies 146040)
  • Card stock & paper: Cherry Cobbler (119685), Daffodil Delight (119683), Basic Black (121045), Whisper White (100730), Dazzling Diamonds Glimmer Paper (135315)

  • Whisper White: 4-1/4” x 11”, scored at 5-1/2 then folded to create card base; 3-3/4” x 5” plus scraps about 1” x 1”, 1-1/2” x 1-1/2” and 1-1/2” x 2-1/2”
  • Cherry Cobbler: 4” x 5-1/4”
  • Dazzling Diamonds Glimmer Paper: 3-3/4” x 1”
  • Daffodil Delight: 3 scraps about ¾” x ¾”
  • Basic Black: scraps about 1” x 5”, 2” x 2” and 2” x 1”

  1. Position the brick mask over the 3-3/4” x 5” piece of Whisper White card stock and quickly but carefully apply Embossing Paste with a palette knife to cover and fill the brick openings. Use a swiping and gentle scraping motion to move the paste quickly. Take care to hold the mask in place. Once all holes filled and all excess paste has been scraped off the mask, carefully lift the mask from the card stock. Wash mask and palette knife immediately with warm soapy water. Set aside the brick wall piece to dry.
  2. Using Garden Green ink on a Whisper White scrap, stamp the wreath.
  3. Using Cherry Cobbler, stamp the ornaments/berries on the wreath then stamp the banner sentiment and wreath bow on the two remaining Whisper White scraps.
  4. Die cut wreath, bow, and banner. Using Multipurpose Liquid Glue, adhere bow to wreath. Set aside to dry.
  5. Using Basic Black card stock, die cut the lamppost, light fixture, and banner pole.
  6. Using Paper Snips, hand-cut three Daffodil Delight “lights” that you will adhere to the back of the lamps with Multipurpose Liquid Glue.
  7. Adhere banner to black flag pole using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.
  8. The lamppost in the sample image is 4-5/8” tall so, with that in mind, position how high to adhere the light fixture to the lamppost so yours is close to that height and do so using Multipurpose Liquid Glue. Set aside to dry.
  9. In the meantime, apply a few drops of Multipurpose Liquid Glue on the back of the wreath and get the tip of the black flag pole into the glue. Allow to dry.
  10. Using Multipurpose Liquid Glue glue wreath to lamppost taking care that flag pole is extending away from it in a straight right angle. Set aside to dry.
  11. Using Paper Snips, trim the Dazzling Diamonds Glimmer Paper to create a wavy carpet of snow.
  12. Adhere white brick piece to Cherry Cobbler layer with SNAIL then that piece to the card base, also with SNAIL.
  13. Adhere snow piece to white brick with Tear & Tape.
  14. Affix Mini Stampin’ Dimensionals behind all lamps, where wreath meets lamppost, at base, behind banner and then using your Paper Snips, trim a very narrow edge of your Dimensionals border to adhere to the narrowest portion of the lamppost. Remove all backing and carefully align onto white brick piece. Do not press Dimensionals until you are sure you have the right placement.
