Hello my crafty friend! Today I’m super excited to introduce you to an awesome new product that will make it easier than ever to create your own light-up cards – the Power Pack! It’s a battery holder and switch combo that you stick to your card base. Then, put your LED sticker(s) down where you want light, and connect them with some copper tape. Easy peasy! My husband I developed it to get the hard part out of the way, so you can spend more time on the fun part – designing your card!
Check out how easy it was to light up this pretty little wedding card…
As I mentioned in the video, to celebrate our grand opening this week, we’re hosting a Mega Blog Hop with some of your favorite designers participating! You’re going to be blown away by these BRIGHT ideas!!!

In order to help customers in Canada avoid high shipping costs, my amazing friend, Kim Brown-Blyleven, will be listing Power Packs in her Etsy shop. Kits are en route to her now and as soon as she receives them, she’ll get them listed in her shop. The coupons above will not apply to orders from her shop, but I think Canadian customers will still come out ahead.
In the video, I promised links and measurements for the products I used in my card… I started by painting my background onto a 5½” square of watercolor paper with Prima Watercolors and adding some Heidi Swapp gold Color Shine. I die cut the ring embellishments using We R Memory Keepers nesting circle dies measuring 2″, 2¼”, and 2½”. The diamond pieces were cut using a set from Echo Park. The congrats die is from Heffy Doodle. I built the circuit onto a 5½” square card base using a Power Pack Kit and I used a Lawn Fawn set to stamp push here over the button in Fossilized Amber Distress Oxide ink. To adhere the pieces together I used a Glue Sponge as well as PVA glue in a Fineline applicator.
Whew, that was a lot of information! If you have any questions or I forgot anything, please let me know in the comments below. I look forward to hearing what you think of the Power Pack and I hope you’ll give light-up cards a try! Thanks for stopping by today, and don’t forget to visit the other blogs in the hop!
