Howdy all! I’m Allison Cope and today we’re going to make a fun Halloween card where our little Vampire’s eyes glow red!
I began today’s card by creating my scene using a few fun Halloween stamp sets from Sweet November Stamps. I created by scene and then colored everything in with Copic Markers. If you’d like a more detailed tutorial of all of these elements, you can visit my personal blog post here.
Then I began to plan out my circuit. So on the inside of my 3D folded panel, I partially stamped the little head of our adorable Vampire in the same location as it’s found on the card front. Plus I also traced a circle at the top right hand corner indicating the placement of my moon. Next I used my Craft Stencil to map out the location of my 2 Animating Red Fade LED Light Stickers. These stickers are BRAND NEW and will be released sometime this week. I also laid out the position of the battery and the negative (blue) and positive (red) sides of the circuit.
Next I laid my Conductive Fabric Tape down on the negative side of the circuit. Then I framed in my battery housing using some 3D foam in preparation for my battery and the beginning of the positive side of the circuit. I also placed a row of 3D foam adhesive around the outer edges of the panel.
Next, I created a paper flap and begin the positive side of my circuit. I began my Conductive Fabric Tape end under the flap and then proceeded to take the tape up to finish off the circuit.
And last of all, I added my 2 Animating Red Fade LED Light Stickers. These lights when activated, the blink on and off in red! SO cool!
Here’s our little fella all lit up!
