This is Eiko and I make light up tree shaker card using Chibitronics and Lawn Fawn merry mice kit.

This card has a battery holder so you can easily replace the battery.

Prepare these parts.

  • Die cut the acetate sheet, white cardstock and two types of pattern paper using outside in stitched Christmas tree die.
  • Die cut white cardstock using stitched Christmas tree frame die and stitched hillside borders die.
  • Die cut white cardstock and 2mm thick foam sheet using outside in stitched Christmas tree die and stitched hillside borders die.
