As a proof of concept, I tried to make some simple Christmas lights and I gotta say it turned out nicely. :) Good for decorating TG streets and towns.

To get the shape, I used a native card object and then applied black-and-white opacity image using free cut-outs from Botanical Paperworks. Then, I applied adequate luminosity and tada! :)
It is also possible to create decorations where "bulb lines" get various colors. In this case, you'll need separate cards and opacity images for each color. Five minutes work but a very promising result.

Here's another set. In the meantime I also tried to prove another concept - populate "candles" on a card masked by an opacity image that imitates hanging power cord. No luck here. :( You need a cord / line object instead and then populate on object option.

These were made with resources from Polish and German sites with kid's coloring cutouts.

Hmm, my Christmas image is about to be rendered so I guess I'll use these next year. ;) But I added some of these just for a flavor - some glow in the distance. I'm doing landscape so you can't really tell the shapes.
