First up, I decided to try my hand at lighting a card up and this Baubled Christmas Wreath Die seemed like a perfect shape to light. I paired it with the new Merry Christmas Word Die and some previously released items to make this enlightening card. ;)
I started by card by cutting my wood paper with the Stitched Mats: Dual Stitched Rectangles. This gave me the layers I needed to create my circuit. I embossed the top rectangle using the Quilted Stitched Spirals Die. Next, I cut my Baubled Christmas Wreath Die from green and added a layer of vellum to the back, trimming around the edges. The vellum hides my circuitry and bulbs while also softening and dispersing the light. I added my shiny red Merry Christmas to the wreath and added some holly using the Holly Jolly Dies. I arranged the holly over the spot where you could press to light the wreath. You can find a ton of YouTube videos on how exactly to create a lighted card so, I won't go into the exactly layout of my circuit. After I had my battery and lights in place, I added my wreath with some foam tape to finish the card. Here's a closer look at the card both lit and unlit:
I started with a cute holly paper cut using the Wonky Rectangles Dies. I cut another Wonky Rectangle from a vellum and a green patterned paper. I layered the vellum cut over the holly paper to add a soft touch. Then, I used the Merry Christmas Border Die to divide my green rectangle before adding it to the front. I loved the look of it but felt it needed a touch of holly to finish it off. So, I used the Holly Jolly Dies and an enamel dot to complete everything. Here's a closer look:
