Light up card with EZ Lights!
Hey Crafty Friends,
Have you ever seen a light up card and thought wow that's cool I want to make something like that, well with the Pear Blossom Press EZ-Lights you can do just that. And as the name suggests they are EZ!!
First tip, don't tape anything down until you are sure of your placements as you will need to use a slightly tacky tape to keep the lights in place on the back of your project!
Next up was the background, using the scalloped frame die from Slimline pull tab die set by Heffy Doodle for the main panel, inking up Moved Lawn for the grass alongside Mermaid Lagoon and Abandoned Coral for the sky.
I felt it needed a little something behind the windmill to bring the 2 sections of my scene together more, taking out the Forest Builder dies by Heffy Doodle and cut 3 of the small trees from green card stock. I love the stitched affect they have, as these will be placed behind the windmill there was no need to die cut the tree stumps to go with them.
Now it's time for the fun part, lighting placement! On each battery you will get 3 lights, you can chose to use all of them or not. If your not going to use them all you can snip away the additional wires linked to those lights. Firstly place the battery into pack with the + facing upwards as shown on the panel.
Using some sticky tape that won't move stick down the power pack to the back of your card, the placement of this will be where you want the recipient to press in order to use the light up feature!
Once your happy with the placement you can now place the lights in the areas you want to light up, and stick down, wrap any wires round and stick these down too in order keep them tucked in!
Using the Heffy Doodle Interactively yours stamp set and a small flower die from the Forest builder set I stamped up 'Press Me' and glued this onto the card where I placed my button.
I hope you can take some inspiration from today's post and I'd love to hear from you if your going to give it a go!
Until next time, Happy Crafting!
