Chibitronics Meets My Favorite Things

Hey everyone!  Long time, huh.

Well, recently I received a yummy box of goodies from My Favorite Things for a blog hop with Chibitronics.  Of course I had to come up with a few "Thank You" cards for swim team.  Don't forget to check out all the gorgeous goodies the MFT girls made on the My Favorite Things Blog

Sparkle Card Supplies :

Step 1:  Cut cardstock to size and add layer of patterned paper.
Step 2:  Stamp sentiment onto white cardstock using hybrid ink and stamp.
Step 3:  Create the circuit using copper tape and LED light stickers on an extra sheet of paper or cardstock.  You can see more information and directions on the Chibitronics website here.  I used three different colors of lights to give the card a bit more sparkle.
Step 4:  Complete the circuit by adding copper tape to the back of the stamped sentiment.
Step 5:  Embellish design with additional sequins.
This switch is super fun to use, just run your finger over the bottom of the card and the lights sparkle.

You Deserve a Treat Supplies:

Step 1:  Assemble Card Base

Step 2:  Stamp Sentiment onto layered papers.
Step 3:  Die cut white cardstock mug and vellum steam and coffee.   I used my trusty Sizzix Machine and some Core'dinations gold vellum.
Step 4:  Assemble simple circuit behind where the steam will be placed. 
Step 5:  To prevent the card from lighting before being presented, I added a small piece of cardstock between the tape and the battery.  Once presented, the recipient can pull the cardstock out completing the circuit. 
This is a simple way to prevent the battery from running out before the card is presented.
