Heffy Doodle + Chibitronics IG Hop

Hey friends! Did you see we’re doing a Collaboration Hop between Heffy Doodle and Chibitronics on Instagram!? There are prizes are up for grabs!!

I created this fun light-up card using the Craft with Light Kit – White by Chibitronics. I used lots of Heffy Doodle products! Keep reading on for those links!

First, I created my bright background! I blended some Catherine Pooler inks through my Zapp Attack and Cogs & Code Stencil. I used Heffy Memo Tape to mask off the top and bottom of my card.

I stamped my images from the Bots of Love Stamp Set and then I colored them in with OLO markers. I cut them out using the coordinating dies.

Once I decided where I wanted my lights, I started to prepare for the wiring.

  1. I poked holes through the robots’ hearts where I want the bulbs to show.
  2. Then, I placed the robots on the background where they were going to be glued down once the card is assembled. I made a mark with a pencil through the robots’ heart holes onto the background.
  3. Then, I poked holes through the pencil marks on the background panel.
  4. Lastly, I used a pencil to make marks on my card base where the lights need to be placed.

On my card base, using the pencil marks I made in the last step as a guide, I’ve made marks where the + and – wires need to line up. I did this by taking the lights and placing them down onto my card base so the light was right over top of the pencil mark. Then, I looked at where the copper + and – are on the light unit and drew lines where I need the wires to be lined up to touch the copper part.

I’ve also created a “housing unit” for my battery with a plus and minus sign on it, so I know which way to insert the battery once it’s time. I also marked where I want the battery to be on the card base.

Next, I started by taking my tape and cutting it in half down the center to create smaller/narrower pieces. This isn’t necessary, but was helpful with navigating the tape.

I adhered my battery housing unit to my card base and started placing my + tape. This tape is the top wire which goes to the base of the battery housing unit.

Then, I placed my – tape which starts on the flap of the battery housing unit.

Next, I used 3D foam tape around the whole base of the card to “lift” my card front up so the battery doesn’t stick out farther than the rest of front panel. I attached the stamped images with 3D foam squares, making sure to line the robots up to the lights properly.
