Hello everyone! Allison Cope here! Today I’m sharing how I made this fun light up glowing campfire card. Today I’m featuring the Chibitronic Orange LED Light Stickers, and the Craft Effects Sticker “Twinkle“. Our sweet little firelight kissed foxes are from the “Fox Family” stamp set by Whimsy Stamps.
I first began my card by stamping out my images on the front and inside of my cardstock. I colored up my images using Copic Markers and masked them off to ink up my cloudy night sky with Catherine Pooler inks. I also stamped a “Push Here” in the top right corner using the helpful Lawn Fawn “Push Here” stamp set, also found in the Chibitronics shop.
As you can see, I stamped the same scene on the circuit surface (as seen below). This allows for ease of placement of all of my circuit elements.
I used my Craft Stencil to trace out the placement of my LED Light Stickers & Craft Effects Sticker and then I used the edge of the stencil to draw out each side of the circuit. I used a small circle shape to trace a place for my battery. The blue lines indicate the negative side of the circuit and the red lines are the positive side of the circuit.
Next I applied the Conductive Fabric Tape to each side of the circuit. I began on the negative side of the circuit to allow for the tape to be laid down under the battery area.
Then I laid the Conductive Fabric Tape down on the positive side of the circuit.
To create the battery housing, I used 3D foam tape to create a 4 sided barrier. This just keeps the battery in place so it won’t move once the card front is attached. A used a small piece of acetate to create the flap over the battery housing. The conductive tape has been wrapped around the piece of acetate and it continues on to complete the rest of the positive side of the circuit.
Now that everything is built, let’s check out the finished lit of card…
The “Twinkle” Craft Effects Sticker makes it look like the fire is flickering (obviously hard to capture in one photo!)!
