Today, I am sharing a “Gnome Love” card that lights up!
For the video tutorial, please click here.
To create this card, I stamped images from the “Gnome Love” Stamp Set. I colored the images with Copic markers and then fussy cut the images out using scissors.
To create my galaxy background, I used Snow Flurries Perfect Blend Cardstock and Distress Oxides.
I created my own mix of water and Picket Fence White Distress Ink Refill in my Mister Perfect spray bottle and then flicked “stars” onto the background.
I poked holes through the galaxy background where I wanted the stars to shine through using my Picker and Poker Tool.
Then, using a gel pen, I marked the stars through the holes onto my black cardstock. I also marked where the button would go.
Using my white gel pen guides, I taped down my EZ-Lights using Purple Tape. The Purple Tape allows me some wiggle room to move my lights and wires around without ripping my cardstock.
Because the button is pretty thick, I used Heffy Doodle’s Deep Foam Tape on the black cardstock. This will keep the button from making a “bump” in the finished card.
I adhered my card front to my card base and the stamped images to my card front. For my finishing touches, I added a few clear gem stones to my stars. These magnified the light shining from the EZ-Lights!
Here’s another look at the finished card!
