Festive Friday #12

It's Festive Friday Time again, I can't believe we are about 1/2 way done with my Christmas Cards for this year.. How exciting it that.. Hope you are making Christmas Cards with all of us???
This Time I had fun with Crystal Lacquer and Stamps! two of my favorite thing...

stamp: Lamp Post from Viva Las Vegastamps! and the mini Christmas wreath - unknown where I got it. But it fit perfectly with the Lamp Post...
Crystal Lacquer: Yellow, Orange, and Clear
Ink: Black
Bottle Cap and Bottle Cap Image from the Bottle Cap Inc...
Flowers - Silk Flower and Leave
Cardstock; White, Blue and Green
Colored Pencils
Miracle Tape

1) Stamp both Lamp Post and Christmas Wreath onto white cardstock. colored in wreath Image with color pencils and cut out. Lamp Post: first, I cut the image down to the size i needed for my card, then i colored the Post with Silver Colored Pencil. Then the fun part. First I added "Yellow Crystal Lacquer to the Glass area on the Lamp Post and then with a tooth pick I pick up just a small amount of "Orange Crystal Lacquer" and add it to the Yellow - just in the center to add dimension to the Light. Doesn't it look like it glowing??? Set aside to Dry...
2) Used my 1" hole punch to punch out the Bottle Cap image and added it to the bottom on my bottle cap using my Clear Crystal lacquer and then added more Clear Crystal Lacquer to the bottle cap and let dry over night. GREAT EMBELLISHMENT!
3) Well in the morning, I just stared to put together. I matted my Lamp Post image onto Green Cardstock. Adhere my Bottle Cap Embellishment to the center of the flower.
4) Added Blue Cardstock to my card base - adhere all my parts into place using my Miracle Tape. DONE....
