I couldn't leave the spinner cards alone and decided to try another one - this one with a birthday theme.
The Reindeer Spinner Card and the Cupcake Center Panel Card files are from Simply Crafty SVGs (links below). The candle lights up too.. and if you pull the slider just enough to close the circuit, the candle light flicker!
The Chibitronic blog has some great examples to look at and I snagged this idea from there. To create the card, you will need to resize the cupcake (and decorative pieces) a bit. I used vellum for the flame on the candle. The vellum will allow the light to shine through.
I cut all the pieces for this card from 110 lb cardstock. Plan on a little bit of time to create the circuit if you've not created one before. Follow Eiko's video (here) for step-by-step details on how to sew the conductive thread to the light and to the circuit. It's a very important part of the process.
For this card, I did used another battery instead of the CR2016 recommended because I was out of that size. Since making this card, I've been able to pick up a couple of extra batteries to have on hand as I have several other ideas for a few upcoming cards and batteries will be required!
Once you've got things assembled, turn that cupcake around and get ready for some fun!
The sentiment is a self-designed cut I created in SCAL 5 Pro and cut using the Skycut.
