- I first prepared a few elements before putting the card together. I die cut a 5 inch diameter circle from 110 lb Neenah solar white cardstock & white glitter cardstock and 2 5 inch diameter circles from blue vellum. I die cut a few snowflakes from glitter cardstock, and stamped and fussy cut the image & sentiment. I cut the glitter cardstock circle in half and adhered one half to one of the blue vellum circles. I also folded the Neenah cardstock circle in half to form the card base. Finally, as shown above, I pulled out an EZ light element from Pear Blossom Press.
- I copic colored the image with the copics shown above.
- I adhered the copic colored image to the blue vellum/glitter cardstock piece and placed the snowflakes where I wanted them to be, so that when I turned the entire piece over, I could map out where I wanted the LED elements. Since the EZ light element has 3 LED lights, I placed one LED in each snowflake and taped each in place. I placed the button mechanism upside down, so that it would be in the correct position and facing the front of the card. The button mechanism is a little bit bulky, so I placed double sided foam tape all around the bottom of the card to protect the entire light mechanism.
- The second vellum blue circle was adhered to the card base, and then the light mechanism piece was adhered to the vellum/card base so that the light mechanism is sandwiched between the 2 pieces of blue vellum. Adhering the final snowflake with the "push here" piece finished the card.
