I have a spooky Day of the Dead light up card to share with you! It's part of the blog hop collaboration between Pink & Main and Pear Blossom Press! I love when the companies I love join forces!
Isn't it cute?! I just love this adorable slimline scene! And their little faces light up! The video above shows just how easy it is to create a light up card, so be sure to check it out! I stamped and colored my images from the Pink & Main Day of the Dead Stamp Set and colored them with Copic Markers then die cut them with the coordinating Day of the Dead Dies. I love how they turned out!
Now it's time to create my scene! I used a die from the Layered Circles Die Set and cut it from masking paper and positioned it in the top left corner to mask off my moon. I used blender brushes and blended on a few colors of ink to make my sky. I didn't bring the ink all the way to the edge of the circle - this lets me have a glowing moon effect! I peeled off the circle mask and blended on some yellow ink for the moon.
I die cut a reverse scallop slimline frame using the Blessings Slimline Die Set from black cardstock. I also cut some stitched hills using the Scallop Waves Die Set and added them onto my night sky ink blended piece.
Now it's time to make the card light up! To see how I do this be sure to watch the video above! It's so easy! I made note of where I wanted the push button and lights to be placed and quickly assembled the light up mechanism. It truly is easy! All you need to do is run the wires and position the light bulbs in the correct place and hold them down with washi tape. You can purchase the EZ Lights from Pear Blossom Press directly or from the Pink & Main shop! Then I added my scene to my card base with Double Thick Foam Tape from Pear Blossom Press. This is a super important part! You want to use thick foam tape so that your button doesn't accidentally get pressed and run down the battery.
Hop along through the rest of the hop to see more Pink & Main and EZ Light inspiration!
