CAS-ual Fridays Stamps meets Chibitronics Blog Hop

Hello everyone!! I hope you all had a fabulous week!

I am part of a blog hop today with CAS-ual Fridays Stamps in conjunction with Chibitronics. Chibitronics can make your card light up!!!

You should have come from Wei Wei Wang's blog.

I have to admit, I was a bit scared. I never took Physics in High School for a reason. Making a simple circuit? Thought I would be in trouble. I did do a sample card first to make sure it would work and surprise, surprise-it was easy!!

Here is what comes in the Chibitronics starter kit:

Copper tape, batteries, a ton of tiny lights-everything you need to bump up a card to the next level.

To create my card, I used CAS-ual Fridays Stamps "Snowy Sayings" and "Powerful Words" set with "Funky Flakes Fri-dies" for a monochromatic holiday card.

First I stamped tiny dots from "Snowy Sayings" with pigment ink and heat embossed it in white. I used "Powerful Words" for my sentiment, using the same technique as the card front. I fussy cut the sentiment and adhered it to the card front.

I then die cut a few of the snowflakes using the "Funky Flakes" Fri-dies" and adhered them to the card. I topped the snowflake off with a clear sequin and some Diamond Stickles. A really simple card but then it was time to make it light up.

I DID NOT photograph my circuit as my inside was terribly messy. I had to pull up the tape a few times to get the battery and the light where I wanted it. However, I created a diagram above to show you how I set the simple circuit up. Totally easy!!!

I had a really hard time taking a photo of the card lighting up so I apologize for the photo below.

It looks really cool in real life. So much so that my daughter asked me where I bought it!!!
