Magical Dragons Light-up Card with Video Tutorial

Hello my friends!! I’m here today to share a light-up card I made using the incredibly easy-to-use EZ- Lights!  I also have a video to share with you on how I added the EZ-Lights to my card!

Here’s the video tutorial:

I created this card using My Favorite Things’ Magical Dragons and Up in the Air stamp sets.  For my card front, I used Heffy Doodle’s Slimline Pull Tab Dies.  For my sky background, I blended Faded Jeans, Salty Ocean, and Tumbled Glass Distress Oxides and then spritzed it with water.

On my card base, I made marks where I wanted my lights to shine through and where I wanted the button to be.  Then, I adhered my button using double sided tape.  I held my lights down using tape as well, with the bulbs facing upwards.  I used Heffy Doodle Deep Foam Tape to prop my card front up so that there wasn’t a bulge where the button was.

I adhered my card front to my card base and tested to make sure the lights worked.  Then, I adhered all of the stamped images onto my card front.  Here’s another photo of the finished card!

Thank you so much for stopping by my blog today!  I hope you enjoyed my card and video!

EZ-Lights Peek-a-Boo Pals Light Up Card

Hello there, crafty friends!  I am so happy to be guest designing for Pear Blossom Press using the oh-so-amazing EZ- Lights!

To make this light-up card, I started by stamping some images from the Avery Elle Peek-a-Boo Pets, Peek-a-Boo Pals, and Peek-a-Boo Car stamp sets.  I colored all of the images with Copic markers and then cut them out with their coordinating dies.

Now onto creating my background scene!  On a piece of white cardstock cut to 5.25″ x 4.5″, I blended Tumbled Glass, Salty Ocean, and Faded Jeans Distress Oxides.  I also created a foreground frame using Heffy Doodle’s Stitched Rectangle Dies and My Favorite Things Inside and Out Stitched Rounded Squares Dies.  For my street, I grabbed a piece of gray cardstock and used the Heffy Doodle Stitched Slopey Joe Border Dies.  I darkened the edges using Black Soot Distress ink to give it some dimension.  I also stamped my sentiment on the “street” using Versamark Watermark Ink and used white embossing powder on it.

Using the Heffy Doodle Cityscape Stencil, I created a city in the background with Black Soot Distress Ink.  I added some stars with Antique Linen Distress Oxide and the Starfall Stencil.

Now, I’m finally ready to get my EZ-lights installed!  I set my colored images up where I wanted them and then used a pencil to make marks on the background where I wanted my lights to shine through.  I poked holes through those spots and then used my pencil to create dots on my card base.  I put dots where I wanted each of the 3 lights to go, as well as where my push button will be.

Then, on my card base, I lined up the lights and push button on top of my pencil marks.  I used some tape to hold the pieces down and used 3mm Deep Foam Tape to prop my card front up.  This thick foam tape keeps me from having to double up on regular foam tape!

Now, all I needed to do was adhere all my images to the front of the card using liquid glue and 3D foam squares!  And voila!  It’s magic!  Man, I love these EZ-lights!!

Thank you so much for stopping by my blog!  I hope you have a fantastic day!  Xoxo, Amanda
