Hello crafty friends,
Today we are so delighted to be joining the wonderful team over at Chibitronics for a fabulous Instagram Hop. I wanted to share my card here on the blog, but be sure to head on over to Instagram so you can hop along and be in with the chance to WIN CRAFTY GOODIES!
Start with the Heffy Doodle Instagram post here https://instagram.com/heffydoodle , find the post featuring this card and then hop along to the next person on the list! Simples!
So do you want to see my card for today? The great news is that I also have a video tutorial – check it out!
For this card, I decided to use the Ghoulfriends Stamps and paired this with the Bed Heads stamp set – because this set includes a fun lamp which was perfect for my bedroom scene! I also used the Pinstripe Stencil to create a wall paper effect, and used the Stitched Bubble Background die for a fun texture.
I chose two colours from my Distress ink swatches that would coordinate with the Heffy Doodle Plum Pudding Purple cardstock – Peacock Feathers ink and Fossilized Amber – I love how they look together!
For the circuit itself, I built this onto a rectangular panel die cut with the Whimiscally Wonky rectangle dies – I find that cutting two panels (one for the circuit and one for your top layer) is the easiest way for me to assemble light up cards. Check out the video for more details!
For the button, I used the small picture frame stamp from Bed Heads, and added a ‘press here’ stamp from the Interactively Yours stamp set – it’s the perfect addition for interactive cards.
Lets have a look at how this looks when you turn off the craft room lights and press that button! So FUN!
To learn how I put together the circuit inside the card, check out the video above! And for more illuminating inspiration, go check out our Instagram Hop with our friends at Chibitronics.
