It's Day 2 of our fun collaboration with Chibitronics® and I'll have to admit
that this time around, I felt a little more confident with my circuitry skills 😬
Here's my card before being lit up by Chibi Lights.
I ink distressed a night sky on watercolor card stock and trimmed it with the
largest A2 Stitched Rectangle die. I cut three larger stars from the panel and
backed them with a piece of vellum. Small stars were cut from silver glitter
card stock and adhered to the sky.
The polar bear was stamped, colored with Copics, and cut with the matching
Die-namics. Two icebergs were cut and details were added with a Copic marker.
I stamped the sentiment on the iceberg in blue ink and decided this would be
where the recipient will press the battery to activate the Chibi lights.
The stars were covered from the back of the panel with vellum.Then it was time to
assemble the tape and LED stickers, after sketching a roughdraft of how I wanted
the tape to run to and from the battery.
I doubled up the dimensional tape around the card so the battery wouldn't
constantly be touching the tape and remain on. After adhering the front panel
to the card base, the stars lit up when the iceberg was pressed. Success!
