Light-Up Birthday Card - MFT & Chibitronics Collaboration

February 15, 2018

Today and tomorrow, MFT and Chibitronics are teaming up to share some inspiration for you!
Make sure you visit the MFT blog and the Chibitronics blog for next two days to see the fun projects that both design teams have made using products from Chibitronics and My Favorite Things. And of course, there will be a giveaway on each blog!

I made a birthday card using the Birthday Chicks stamp set. I made my background scene using the Radiating Rays Stencil and the Cloud Stencil since I wanted to make my focal panel as flat as possible so the Chibi Lights mechanism works well. 
I colored and cut out the chicks, then made a tiny hole on top of each chick's party hat with a craft pick. I also made three tiny holes in the points where the party hats should be on the stenciled panel.
I made my electric circuit on another panel and adhered it to the card base which I added a patterned paper panel and a frame. I covered it with the stenciled panel, adhered the chicks and the sentiment panel, and embellished with some gems

I'm really sorry that I completely forgot to take a photo of my circuit. A coin cell battery and a switch are under the sentiment panel. So when you press the panel, the hats light up. As you see in the photo below, I used Tropical LEDs that match with the colors of the hats.

MFT carries some Chibitronics products, and the products I used are listed below. Watch a how-to video HERE if you're new to Chibi Lights. Making a circuit is easier than you think. ;)

Thank you for stopping by!
