Just when you thought card construction couldn’t get any crazier than Days 1 to 4, it does! Day 5 has cards that light up with circuits and everything. I had seen some tutorials of cards with lights on the internet before and had taken an interest in Chibitronics. So far I had not gone so far as to press the “in my cart” button. That changed today, but that is a story for another day.
I decided to make a card that lights up using a small LED light I had gotten in a kit from Papertrey Ink. Finding the little lights that I had stored in a very special place, took about two hours, but finally I came up with them.
If I were to do this card over again I would have doubled up on the foam tape to make the light more diffused. Generally though, I like the card and you can’t say that the sentiment isn’t “spot on” for the theme.
My table is already set for Canadian Thanksgiving tomorrow, but it is the only place with a dimmer switch on the lights!
