Light up balloon featuring Chibitronics LED Stickers

 Hi Everyone,

I just can't help myself, I am back with another light up card.

Using Chibitronics LED Stickers, it makes it so much easier to create a circuit where you want it.

Once you try it, you won't stop!!

Ingredients

Stamp Set:  Prehistoric Party

Medium:  Copic Markers

Sentiment:  Included in stamp set

Electronics:  Chibitronics 'Craft with Light kit'

Border:  Black Copic Multi Liner Pen

Card Stock:  Poppy Craft 350gms White Card, Black Card

Ink:  Paper Rose Premium Black

Other:  Sakura White Gelly Roll 08 Pen, Shimmer Pen, Glossy Accents


Method

1. Card Front

I have stamped the image onto X-Press It Blending Card and coloured it with Copic Markers.

I then drew a border using a Black Copic Multi Liner Pen.

The sentiment has been stamped onto black card and embossed with white.

I then added white accents using a Sakura White Gelly Roll 08 Pen, Shimmer Pen and Glossy Accents to the balloon.  Allow to dry.

2. Circuit

I have stamped the image onto another piece of white card, this is in exactly the same spot as the card front.  This allows me to easily map the circuit.

I have drawn the circuit in pencil, so I know exactly where the circuit will go.


3. Completing the Circuit

I have used the Chibitronics 'Craft with Light Kit' to complete this circuit.

I love this kit, exactly what you need all in one place/kit.


4. Let's light this card up!

I have used the 2016 battery included in the kit.

Press the battery holder to light up the card (the black strip beside the 'birthday' sentiment.

The positive will connect with the battery.




I hope I have inspired you to light up a card using Chibitronic LED Stickers.

Until next time
Melissa
