For this collaboration I used the adorable So Tweet stamp set and the True Multifaceted Heart Die to create a gold themed shaker card. My shaker will be filled with tiny clear gems that will sparkle when the Chibitronics LED stickers lights up behind it.
To make this card I first assemble my card base and my front panel. My front panel consist of a cream colored card stock trimmed to 5.5″ x 4.25″ with my sentiment heat embossed on top with gold embossing powder. I next used the solid heart die to cut out my shaker window. Create my left edging by placing 2 different width of scor-tape and covering it with gold gilding flakes from Tonic. Mark where the heart window and the tiny heart from the sentiment onto my card base. The large heart will be where I place 2 LED stickers and the tiny heart above that will be where the battery is placed. Then I draw in my circuit path connecting everything.
To make my shaker, I first cover my window with acetate and place a thin strip foam tape around the edge to create my pocket. Fill it with sparking crystals and then place another piece of acetate to seal it.
To create my LED circuit I first lay down my negative tape side connecting the battery to where the LED stickers will be placed. For the positive side, I first placed a small piece of 3 layered foam tape around the battery to create a “bridge” and then lay down my positive copper tape connecting my LED sticker to the bridge and around it. Tape my battery down with scor-tape and last cover the copper tape with post-it tape so it will not show through my shaker window and place a large dollop of Rose Water Nuvo drops over the LED light. This will create a diffused light source.
I finish my card by placing triple layered foam tape around my card base and then taping my front panel down. Last I stamp out the 3 birds from the stamp set and color it with copic markers. Cut it out using the coordinating dies and placing it over my shaker window with foam tape.
