MFT + Chibitronics Collaboration

Hello! For today and tomorrow, My Favorite Things and Chibitronics are partnering together to bring you a lots of  inspirations. Chibitronics offers complete kits and accessories that allows you to add lights and power to your paper crafting projects. Sounds like fun, right?! It's actually one of my favorite interactive cards to make. It never fails to WOW the recipient. 


To begin, I stamped the space boy and the planet from BB Space Explorer on Neenah 110 cardstock with black ink (heavy cardstock is needed- otherwise the lights will shine through). I colored the images with Copics. On the planet, I stamped "Press Here" from the Interactive labels stamp set. The sentiment was embossed with white embossing powder and cut out with a die from Lip Balm Window and Frame Die-namics.


To create my front panel, I die-cut white cardstock with the largest die from the Wonky Stitched Rectangle STAX Die-namics. Then, I added a peek-a-boo circle to the panel with a circle die from Starry Circle Die-namics. After, I die-cut a watercolored panel with the circular array of stars to make the backdrop. 

I adhered the images to the front panel, then to an A2 sized black cardstock as shown. 


Adding lights to cardmaking can be intimating at first, but the kit comes with instructions that will teach you everything you need to know. If you are a visual learner like me, there are great tutorials on Youtube.  You can start by watching Stephanie HERE.

Here's a picture of my circuitry panel (please excuse the messiness).


For this panel, I used the Chibi Lights Starter Kit, Red, Yellow, and Blue LED Chibi Circuit Stickers Mega Pack, Chibi Conductive Fabric Tape (to reinforce the copper tapes), and lastly, the Chibi Circuit Effects Stickers to make the lights twinkle. 

To finish up this fun and special project, I added the front panel to the Chibi lights panel, then to an A2 sized card base. 

Watch the video to see the card in action.
