this was so fun to make after seeing something similar on the Chibitronics blog a while back. The lights under the wings of the bees is a perfect addition to the digital clip art from Creative Fabrica. You'll find the details to create this card here.
SCAL 5 Pro and the skycut were perfect partners for the print + cut print option in the software. The machine once again performed perfects cuts.
Since I couldn't find a stamp for the sentiment in my stash and I didn't want to do the foil quill or pen since the background was already cut, I used a Micron pen to write the sentiment. It's not perfect, but it does add a personal touch for this card and I do like it.
The circuit was a bit challenging -- but it's not the fault of the Chibi product, just my own inability to follow the plan! I did get the + and - mixed up on the first go round and nixed the slider switch. The second time around was a lot quicker and successful!
I did end up using foam squares since my white mounting tape has done a disappearing act. :( Once all the foam was added, we did another test of the lights and they worked.
Building the front image was a breeze since placement was marked earlier in the process. Bearly Art glue was used to adhere the flowers to the card front. Foam pop ups were used to attach the bees to the cards.
It's fun to share these makes with a friend and neighbor. She's always a little amazed at the "fun!" This card was no exception and I have a feeling there will be a time in the future to make a few with her for her to gift to family and close friends.
Thanks for stopping by -- hope you'll look at trying to "light up" one of your cards or makes in the near future.
Enjoy your time in your creative space!
