For my card today, I created a light up panda card using our Panda Can’t Even set and Chibitronics Starter Kit.
First, I stamped the panda from our Panda Can’t Even set in our Noir Dye Ink. Then I gold heat embossed the sentiment from our Like a Boss set with some gold glitter embossing powder. Next I heat embossed and stamped the sparklers in the panda’s outstretched arms. After I stamped and embossed additional bursts from the Sparklers Alpha set, I blended some Lofty Mint dye ink (with Clarity Brushes) at the top and base of my panel to create some interest. The stunnah shades are from our Scheduled set which I stamped in our Hot Tourmaline ink.
Next I created a blinking slide switch circuit for the light up aspect of my card. The trick to using this kit is to match up the positives and negatives (in a nutshell). The kit comes with a great sketch book or activity book that’ll get you ready to start crafting with these lights in no time. The kit is so easy to use (and fun too!) and the instructions are so easy to follow.
I decided to go for a blinking slide light up card because I thought that the flickering lights would look more like sparklers.
For a more in depth explanation or depiction of the circuit that I created, check out the video above. I just love the twinkling
I had so much fun making this card! Creating with Chibitronics’ product was so refreshing and unique to cardmaking. I hope you were inspired by my card and video today! Your next stop on our Chibitronics Collaboration Hop is Vera.
