With Father’s day coming up I thought it would be useful to make a masculine card. I googled glowing mushrooms and found some inspirational images for my card design. I started out by stamping and embossing all of my Hero Arts Images. I then colored the images using pencil crayons, blending and layering the colors with white pencil. Once my card front was complete I made my circuit.
This was a fairly simple circuit to create, I placed my card front onto a white piece of card stock which was 1/4″ bigger. I marked the corners of the front on the white card stock so I could see where to line it up then I marked where to place my light basically by eyeballing it. I placed the battery under the snail so that when the snail is pressed the circuit is complete and the lights turn on. I found the sketchbook that came with the Chibitronics starter kit very helpful in learning how to use this product. After adhering my card front on top of the circuit using foam tape I used a large needle to prick holes into the mushrooms so the lights would shine through. To finish my card I added some Glossy Accents to the snail shell and the mushrooms.
Thanks for stopping by! Have a great weekend. Please come back Monday, June 5 to see more inspiration and our June Challenge info.
