I am pretty excited at the way my card turned out, cause it actually work! LOL. It's been a while since I made my last Chibitronic card. I had to watch how to do it all over again on YouTube. Of course, there's the manual,but as usual, am not the most patient when it comes to reading manual. I'd rather watch.
So, here's my card using Honey Bee Stamps Gather Together set (I super duper love the critters in this set).
To start, I stamped and colored the critter image with Copic markers. Granted this set comes with coordinating dies. But, I really want the cut to be right on the line, so I went with fussy cutting the whole image with scissors and x-acto knife.
Then I work on the background. I watercolor a panel of watercolor cardstock with distress ink, let it dry. Then I stamped the sentiment from the limited edition STAMPtember Remarkable You set and heat embossed it with white embossing powder.
On the picture above, ifyou look closely, you can see I punched out 3 small holes. This is where I want the Chibitronics light to shine through. I marked the location of these holes on my card base and adhere the copper tape from Chbitronics kit following the holes location.
Before I adhere the panel to the card base, I tested the lights to make sure they work and also to make sure I adhere them on the right position.
The pic above shows the card without the lights on and below with the lights on.
Cute critters, bright colors and light up card, perfect combination, right? Since I didn't put a sentiment push here directly on the card, when I mail the card I will simply include a note for the recipient to press on the squirrel for fun surprise. :)
