Happy Sunday everyone! As promised, today I am sharing another card featuring the Chibitronic LEDs – fun little lights that you can incorporate into your cards to make them super special!
This time I used a yellow LED as a shooting star -and these two bunnies from the Mama Elephant Honey Bunny stamp set was the perfect image to set the scene, and the stars are from the Unicorns & Rainbows Stamp set, also from Mama Elephant.
I got down and dirty with my distress ink for this one, but I really enjoy creating night time scenes as I think they look awesome! So at the end of the night when my fingers are black with inkiness – I just remind myself that its all worth it! 🙂
To colour the bunnies I used my distress inks with a water brush to ‘paint’ the image. I love the way this looks on cards -and its a fairly quick process which is an added bonus!
The trickiest part of this card was of course the circuit. It takes a little practice, but I am getting much quicker now, and I have picked up some tricks along the way! 🙂 In this card I used a post it note to create the switch mechanism, and it was much easier than sticking down a piece of paper because i could move it about if i needed to.
I decided to make the button a lot more subtle on this card… no ‘press me’ or ‘push’ buttons at all. Even the LED is fairly subtle… I was thinking that it would be fun to put a message in the inside to make it more obvious – maybe ‘give the bunnies a hug’ or ‘squeeze the bunnies’. That way it would be an even bigger surprise for the recipient!
Thanks for stopping by. Enjoy the video!

But before I go, I wanted to share a sneaky peeky of a home decor project I am working on. It’s so cute I could scream!! CIAO!
