We’ve got a dino-mite project for you today! We know you’re going to love this card made by Rubeena. You’ll be de-lighted to see what she shares!
Hello! Rubeena here as Creative Contributor for my very first post! I’m excited to share an interactive card with you today. I’ve seen plenty of cards using the Chibitronics products, but I was hesitant to create one myself. Turns out that it’s not that hard. If I can do it, so can you! When I got T-Rex Hugs from Sweet Stamp Shop, I knew this technique would be perfect for it! Aren’t the dinos adorable?!
I started off with my Chibitronics Starter Kit and went through the small book to get an idea of what to do.
I practiced right within the book to see if it works.
I created a similar sketch on my A2 folded white cardbase. As you can see, it lights up!
I set that aside so I could work on the card front.
I knew I’d use the volcano from T-Rex Hugs where I wanted the light to be so I stamped it in the center of my base.
I used watercolors to create an explosive love scene! 😉 I fussy cut the images and arranged them in front of the volcano. I glued the heart where I’d want you to press down for the light.
After adding two layers of foam tape, I matted down the card front over the cardbase. Then I pressed the heart to see the fire light up. How cool is that?! It was hard to photograph, but I think you get the idea. 🙂
I hope you enjoyed my work today. Thank you so much for visiting! To stay on top of all other things Sweet, check out the Sweet Facebook Page. I’ll see you again soon!
