Heyyyyy everyone! After a rather rough start to the week (nothing like -43C to start the day and a sick kid throwing up to wake up to) I feel like things are settling down now that Monday is almost over LOL! The weather is FINALLY supposed to warm up and my kid seems to have got everything out of her system so we can hopefully end the day on a much more positive note.
I have one more card for my Valentine series this year - tho like I say in the video this could be an Anniversary/Special Occasion/Birthday/Whenever card really - just switch up the sentiments on the inside!
I pulled out Lawn Fawns Turn Me On mini stamp set that I got last year? I think it was released last year (I hoard so much Lawn Fawn it's getting hard to remember who/what/when LOL) - anyway I had the idea to make the light bulb actually light up. Then decided to make it into a masculine Valentine's Day card because I think it's hilarious.
I heat embossed the light bulb on vellum and coloured the back of it with Copic Markers (Y19, C6) and used the coordinating wafer die to cut the "window" in the plaid patterned paper. The ligh switch was stamped onto Neenah Classic Crest Solar White 80lb card stock with MFT Extreme Black ink and shaded with Copics (C4, C2, C0 and 0).
The best part about this card? When you press on the light switch the bulb actually lights up. I used my Chibitronics and created the circuit and there's a light and battery sandwiched under the blue patterned paper. It's all way easier to see and explain in the video!
I finished off the inside of the card with sentiments from Lawn Fawn's Happy Happy Happy stamp set and coordinating dies and that was it!
To see how this card came together check out my video below:
