Hello Crafty Friends! Today, I am sharing a light up birthday card created with the pretty layered cakes stamps in the new Special Day Stamps set and Pear Blossom E-Z Lights.
To start, I die cut white cardstock with the largest die in Stitched Rectangle Dies. I added a balloon background by creating a stencil using Bright Balloons Dies. I die cut stencil paper with the oval balloon die in the set and ink blended the stencil with Squeezed Lemonade, Spun Sugar, and Dried Marigold Distress Oxides. I splattered the panel with Picked Raspberry Distress Ink mixed with a little bit of water.
Next, I stamped and die cut the panda from Panda Party and the party hat from Purrfect Birthday. I then stamped and die cut the beautiful layered cake and number candles from Special Day Stamps. I colored all the images with Copic markers listed in my blog link below. I decorated the cake with some “gold leaves” by applying a thin layer of Tombrow glue and gently rubbing strips of deco foil over top.
I placed the images onto the front panel with removable glue dots. Once all the images were in place, I placed a piece of A2 white cardstock (back panel) underneath the front panel. Next, I used a paper piercer and pierced the candle flames and the pompon on top of the hat making sure that the front panel was pierced all the way through, and a mark was left on the back panel.
I removed the front panel and set it aside. I used a pencil to darken the markings on the back panel. I used double sided tape to adhere the EZ light onto the card. I placed the three lights onto the pencil markings and taped the wires into place. The EZ lights are very easy to use. Each mechanism comes with three lights and a battery. All you need to do is put in the battery, push the button and the lights will switch on.
After I tape down the wires in place, I removed the images from the front panel and adhered the panel onto the back panel with double sided foam tape.
I adhered the images back onto the front panel with permanent adhesive.
I die cut the word “Sweet” from Sweet Word Die out of white cardstock and inked it with Picked Raspberry and Spun Sugar DIstress Oxides.
Thank you so much for joining me today. Have a wonderful week!
