Last week was Logan's Birthday, he's pretty Star Wars obsessed so I wanted to make a card that even a cool 11 year old would like. I think I accomplished it. This fun light saber card actually lights up!
There's a battery and lights in the card and when you press it the light sabers light up. To get the light sabers to really shine I used an Xacto knife and cut light saber light shapes (so basically a rectangle). Then I attached some vellum behind the cut out pieces and colored them with Pacific Point and Real Red, you know light saber colors. I finished the card with some embossed greetings and some light saber handles made with the Modern Label punch.
As for my battery here's my whole circuit. I used Chibitronic lights. I bought mine on Amazon. They have a starter kit you can get and there's lots of videos on Youtube about how to create these cards. Basically you channel your inner scientist and create a circuit with some copper tape. The copper tape connects the negative side of the light to the negative side of the battery and the same with the positive side. Since I had 2 lights I had 2 separate circuits connected to the same battery. It all sounds very confusing but it's actually pretty fun to make, and it makes for some really fun cards.
