How to make light up Holiday 3D house card.

Hi, crafty friends!

This is Eiko and I make light up Holiday 3D house card using Chibitronics and Waffle Flower Crafts stamps and dies.

At the basic level, when you pull the pull tab, one Chibitronics glows.

At the advanced level, when you pull the pull tab, the two colors Chibitronics flash alternately.
