Flying Hippo Shining Circle

Hello crafty people,

it´s Vanessa here today to show you a flying hippo LED card. I had the idea in my mind to create a slider switch card like Eiko has done lately. But I totally failed. Nevertheless I wanted to encourage you to continue your projects and not throw them away. We spend so many hours (at least I do!) on a project, that I don’t want to lose this time. Sometime you just have to change ideas and the card will turn out beautifully. Nobody will ever know that it wasn’t planned like this. Just me and you 😉

I created a video for you on how to create this project. But you can find here a little instruction:

  • Stamp all my images with Versafine black ink on watercoloring paper
  • Color images using Spectrum Noir Aqua Marker
  • Fussy cut images
  • Create the background; I used Spectrum Noir Sparkle Pens and an aqua brush pen
  • Die cut the background, glitter frame and cloud borders
  • Create LED circuit (circuit picture below) on a card panel that is slightly bigger than the background
  • Stamp and emboss the sentiment on the cloud border
  • Assemble the card together: 1. One layer of foam tape all around the frame and tape the background on top 2. Another layer of foam tape on the bottom of the card 3. Adhere cloud borders 4. Two layers of foam tape on the glitter frame 5. Glue hippo and his balloons on the card
  • Add finishing touches like Glossy Accents and Iridescent Stars (you could also use sequins)
  • Card is all finished 😉

I hope my instruction and my video could help you create this card. Feel free to change the places of the LEDs or change the scene. The card could be easily a love card when you arrange them into a heart shape.

All the supplies I’ve used are listed below. I wish you all a nice week and until the next time 😉
