It's day 3 of MFT & Chibitronics collaboration. Have you checked Day 1 and Day 2 yet? Each day several of our DT shared their projects using MFT products and Chibi Lights Kit, and all of them were FABULOUS!! So you must check them out, if you haven't yet!
As you know, I like making interactive cards sooooo much. But, I confess that I procrastinated this assignment until the last minute, because...the word "circuit" scared me. LOL! Everyone who has done it says it's easy. I read the instruction book included in the kit carefully. (I just wish they had an instruction book written in Japanese though. "chibi" is a Japanese word that means very small or little.) But I still thought it wasn't my thing.
Anyway, I thought it would be fun to make a light-up card for Christmas. I decided to play with the Santa's Elves stamp set, Snowflake Flurry stamp set, and Hand Lettered Holiday stamp set.
look! I did it!! Even though it was my first try, I was so ambitious that I put four lights. Now I can proudly say "Making a circuit with Chibi Lights Kit is not so hard!" and I highly recommend you to give it a try! :D
I started my card with creating the top panel. I cut a Smooth White panel using the Blueprints 24 Die-namics and gold embossed the sentiment. Then I white embossed the snowflakes and sponged some pastel colors of inks over them with a sponge dauber. I had to use a screw punch that I dug out from my old tool box to punch the small holes since my 3 mm hole punch didn't reach the center of the blue snowflake. :P
Here are a couple of pics of my circuits.
I worked on a Insulation Pink panel since I didn't want to mess up my card base. The most difficult part for me was making corners with folding copper foil tape. But it doesn't need to be fancy at all, because it will be covered with the top panel! :D
I adhered the circuit panel to the card base, then mounted the top panel with a double layer of foam tape. After I made sure that all the LEDs light, I glued the elf to finish off the card.
I hope my card inspire or encourage you. Make sure to visit the MFT blog to see what the other DT members have come up with for today!
Thank you so much for stopping by.
