Over the weekend I shared this clean and simple watercolored card:
I thought it would be interesting to actually turn that little seed into a “lantern” and light up my card using Chibitronics! So to start I stamped the branches from the kit onto black cardstock with versamark and heat-embossed them with gold glitter embossing powder. Then I stamped the pods onto vellum with versamark, heat-embossed them with the same embossing powder, and die-cut them with the coordinating dies.
Next I created two circuits using Chibitronics LED stickers and twinkling effects stickers. Here’s a view of the circuit in action before I sealed up the card! You can find a more detailed tutorial for using these effects stickers here.
Once my circuits were finished I punched a tiny hole over the position of each light on my gold heat-embossed panel. I used a double layer of foam mounting tape to adhere the panel over the circuits. Then I used vellum adhesive to adhere the vellum pods onto the card. I stamped the sentiment from the kit on dark red cardstock and heat-embossed it with gold embossing powder. I trimmed it down to a label and adhered it to the card with foam mounting tape. Finally I added a few metallic gold sequins for a little more sparkle!
