Making this card was a challenge for me. The circuit involved more than just copper tape, a battery and a light. This also involved some conductive thread which I hadn't used previously.
I did watch a few videos to make sure that I understood the way the circuit would work .... and it did! I was ecstatic when the slide switch turned the light on! Use this link to view the video as YouTube isn't playing nice and letting me embed the short today.
The Gnome All Occasion Treat Box is a new release from Simply Crafty SVGs ... and the bonus included with the basic gnome pattern comes are the 12 different elements for decorations! Of course, if you have your own ideas, you can add those to personalize the gnome even more. It was very easy to resize the gnome and have it become the focal piece for this project.
I used the Reindeer Spinner Card from Simply Crafty SVGs as the base for the card. Digital papers used on the card front and inside of the card are from NitWit Collections (Farmhouse Collection) and pulled a few pieces or cardstock, vellum and dotted paper from my stash.
The circuit was created following details in Eiko's post for a spinner card I found on the Chibitronics blog. Following the directions in the video, cut three pieces of the image you plan to use for the spinner. Cut two panels for the card and the card base. One of the card panels will become the card front. The other will be used for the circuit. The card base will be adhered to the back of the circuit panel. (Click on the image below for a full size view)
I will have a more detailed step by step assembly post added in a week or so. So please stay tuned.
