Good morning! If you’ve been around here for awhile you know how much I adore Chibitronics LED light stickers! You can find all my projects using Chibitronics HERE. I’m so excited to share that Chibitronics has released a brand new Craft With Light kit created specifically with crafters in mind!
Each kit contains six LED light stickers (two versions are available – an all white kit or a rainbow multicolor kit), plenty of conductive fabric tape for LOTS of cards (you’ll have leftover for sure), and two ultra thin batteries. You can use the kit to create two cards with up to three lights each or if you purchase extra batteries you can create up to six cards! I know there are other products out there for creating light up cards but Chibitronics allows for the most versatility in your light design and it’s really very straightforward once you’ve created a circuit or two!
Today I’m sharing two cards using the multicolor kit!
I was inspired by my crafty friend Alberto to create a warm version and a cool version Christmas card! They’re both a little unconventional holiday colors but I kinda love them! I started by blending squeezed lemonade, dried marigold, festive berries, and picked raspberry distress oxide ink onto one panel and cracked pistachio, peacock feathers, salty ocean, and wilted violet onto another. Once they were mostly dry I splattered them with water and shimmer spray and let them dry completely.
Next I die-cut the Giant Outlined Merry and Bright die from Lawn Fawn twice from black cardstock for each panel and once from gold glitter cardstock. I placed the Merry and Bright onto my blended panel and used a pencil to mark the center of each light. Then I used a small hole punch to punch out circles for my lights to shine through. You could just let the light shine through the cardstock but I wanted them to be really bright. I did adhere a little piece of vellum behind the holes to hide the actual light itself.
I created my circuit connecting the positive side of the LED stickers to the positive side of the battery and the negative side of the LED stickers to the negative side of the battery. You can find a video for an older card of mine HERE that shows how to lay out your circuit! I also create a battery holder on the bottom right corner so that I can ‘turn off’ the lights by breaking the circuit. This allows you to conserve the battery (and also replace it)! The fabric tape is also a little more forgiving than the older copper tape and is easier to manipulate to create edges and corners of your circuit.
Once my circuit was created I adhered the distress oxide inked panel over the circuit panel with a single layer of foam mounting tape! Next I adhered the black cardstock sentiment over the panel twice and then inset the gold glitter cardstock. I repeated the process for the other panel to finish the card! I love how it looks like that die was just meant to be paired with the LED light stickers! And, of course, everything’s better in rainbow! You could also use more traditional Christmas colors and use the Craft With Light Kit with white stickers!
