It’s Donna here and we are collaborating this month with Chibitronics! What is Chibitronics? They’re a great company that make electronic stickers that have lights on them that allow you to add lights to your cards or projects. They are very easy to use, and the kits come with wonderful instructions, and they have amazing tutorials to help guide you to use their products on their website.
This month challenge is “interactive”, which seems to fit with the Chibitronics! If you don’t have Chibitronics you can make a slider or shaker card or anything you can think of that would be interactive! We can’t wait to see what you come up with.
Here is my card, I am using the Hero Arts Destination stamp Washington, DC. I just had to have this stamp because I work in DC and since it is almost time to celebrate Independence Day this was the perfect stamp for and interactive card with the fireworks going off in our Nations Capital.
It’s hard to see, but the light is on where the fireworks are going off.
Here is a short video of the lights going on and off:
Here is how I put my card together:
1. I cut my panel 3 7/8 x 5,
2. I stamped the Hero Arts Destination Washington, DC stamp with versamark and heat embossed it with Hero Arts white embossing powder,
3. I masked off the embossed image and used the Hero Arts pair sky (star) stencil to make the stars on the background. I let that dry,
4. I then used some distress inks to make the background.
5. I used the pick to put small holes where I wanted my lights to shine,
6. Then I used layed my copper tape where I needed it to connect to the battery (which is where the folded piece is),
7. I put the lights where they needed to be (putting the negative and positive side on the correct copper tape. After I figured out where the lights should go, I used some foam tape so I could pop the piece on my card.
Here is what it looked like after I put all the foam tape down and centered it on the stamped part of my card. I added some adhesive and this part is ready to be put on my layer for the card.
