Hello everyone! I am SO excited to show you today’s card! It features the Lighting the Way Bundle from Stampin’ Up. When I first opened this stamp set, I immediately thought of a light up card. But, I’d never made one before! So, I headed to Youtube and found several different ways to do this. I didn’t want to spend a lot of money on some fancy contraption that would only make one card, so I decided to use Copper Tape and a few Diodes to create my light up fireflies.
It’s very hard to photograph and video a light up card. So, I’ll start with a basic photo of the card without the lights on. I used Soft Sea Foam Cardstock, Pear Pizzaz ink, Vellum and a Basic Black and Daffodil Delight large firefly.
Now, here I was able to get the lights on. Can you see them? They are at the end of each small vellum firefly.
I don’t like taking photos with my hands in it, but I think this photo really shows off the lights!. To create the lights, you will need to create a “parallel circuit” with Copper tape. I have filmed a video, which you can find below, and I’ll list the exact supplies I used below the video.
There are three main supplies you need: copper tape, diodes and a button battery. I bought them all on Amazon. Here are the exact ones I purchased. (Affiliate link) If the icons don’t show up below, you can click the word above to find the products.
The measurements for this card are simple: 4 1/4″ X 11″ Soft Sea Foam Cardstock, folded in half and then a 4″ X 5 1/4″ piece of Soft Sea Foam for the top layer.
This week’s Facebook Friday will also feature the Lighting the Way Bundle. I’ve got three projects planned for Friday at 2:00 pm CST over on Facebook- I hope you’ll join me then! If you’d like to order this week to earn these make and takes for free, please use Host Code F2C6PJUU.
