Light Up My Holidays

Only five days left until Christmas!  Too late to mail cards but I do give out a few in person.   I also like to make cards to use next year while I’m in the holiday mood.  The shaker card lights up when the tab is pulled.  I first stamped and watercolored my scene.  I poked holes in three of the lightbulbs on the flamingo then marked through the holes onto a piece of cardstock underneath with a pencil.  This is to mark where I place the LEDs on the circuit.

When the tab is pulled the positive circuit is completed with the copper tape adhered to the tab.  I built my shaker and then adhered it to the circuit.  I usually use double sided foam tape to adhere the circuit but I wanted less bulk since the shaker was already fairly thick.  This time I adhered scraps of fun foam around the circuit and battery then adhered the shaker to the fun foam.

If you celebrate the holidays I hope you enjoy them.  Thanks for looking at my card.
