Woohoo, it’s day 3 of the new release celebration with The Rabbit Hole Designs, and today we’re sharing projects featuring the brand new Marquee Words stamp set. As soon as I saw this one, I immediately knew these words would be fun to light up with EZ-Lights!
On my YouTube channel, I have lots of videos showing you how to create light-up cards, but I don’t have many picture tutorials. I thought I’d give you one for my card today. Let’s start with my card parts…
I stamped and embossed the #jawsome sentiment on a fishtail banner, and Copic colored the Caffeinated Shark after cutting it out with my ScanNCut. I also stamped the words PUSH HERE on the coffee mug. For the COFFEE sign, I stamped the Marquee Word with navy ink and embossed it with clear powder, on vellum. It’s framed with navy cardstock, cut with nesting rectangle dies. I cut a panel from pattern paper and glued a rectangle of white cardstock on top (same size as the coffee sign). I poked three holes through the panel for the lights to shine through. I also poked a hole down lower on the panel to thread the lights through. My card base is made from cream cardstock. At the bottom of the picture, you can see my EZ-Light.
In the next pictures, you can see the holes in the pattern paper panel, before and after I threaded the lights through the lower hole and Scotch taped them to the back of the panel (orange side). I coiled up the extra wire and taped it down flat, then used double stick tape to adhere the battery pack to the front of the panel.
Next, I glued the panel to the card base, and added double stick tape to the top of the battery pack. I applied double thick foam tape around the coffee frame and attached it over the white panel. More double thick foam tape elevates the jawsome sentiment and part of the shark. I made sure to adhere them so the button of the EZ-Light is right under the mug, and the rest of the battery pack is hidden under the shark. To finish the card, I glued on a few clear drop gems. (If you glue on lots of gems or sequins like I do, you may want to invest in a jewel picker and a small tray with a spout to help pour extras back into the package.)
