I’m also going to create a blended background with Distress Oxides, color my digital sentiment in with Copic Markers, and use patterned paper to create a scene in this Light-Up Card Tutorial.
I love playing with other companies’ products and Digital Images. I can alter them and have them appear as I want them to quite easily. You may want to check with each companies rules, as some state you are not to alter them in any way.
Anyhow, I talked about why I altered this stamp in my video, but I will include a picture of what he looked like (colored in to protect copyright) so you can see the difference.
Creating the Card
I started out blending a background with Tim Holtz (All Supplies I can link are down below) Distress Oxides in Mustard Seed & Spiced Marmalade. Then I used a “Fireworks” Stencil I made. If enough people hound me I will make a video on how I make my own stencils with my Cricut. It’s on my list of videos to make, but if you want to see it, let me know 🙂 I blended the stencil with the same 2 Distress Oxides to create a “Sunshine” Effect. I used some very old Bo Bunny Cardstock I have had in my stash for a VERY long time. But I found the perfect piece to create a ‘Ground” for the card. I think it worked out perfectly.
Now I won’t even begin to try to explain how I created the DIY LIGHT-UP mechanism for the card. But it’s all DIY LIGHT-UP. Using copper tape, a battery, and some diodes. I did not use a manufactured mechanism like Chibitronics. I find they are so expensive in comparison to the supplies I used.
Question: What did you think? Are you going to try making your own Light-Up Cards?
Should I make MORE of these types of cards?
