We’re so excited to welcome Jeannie Lieu as a guest designer on the blog today! She has a gorgeous light up Christmas card to share…
Hi everyone! It’s Jeannie (InsideoutJeans) on the blog today guest designing for Pear Blossom Press, using the EZ-Light. I’m so excited to be here, especially because I really haven’t played with lights along with my cards. I admit that I was a bit intimidated by lights on a card, but I’ve watched videos using them and they seem so easy!
For a couple of days, I contemplated what kind of card to create using these lights and a Christmas card would be perfect! Yes, I know it’s July but I wanted to get a head start. Using mainly Gerda Steiner Designs’ Reindeer and a Tree, I created a one layer scene card of reindeer decorating a Christmas tree.
I’m sharing my process from start to end in this video:
Since one EZ-Light includes 3 lights, they light up three parts of the card: Rudolph’s red nose, an ornament, and the star that goes on top of the tree. I used vellum and colored the pieces using Copic markers so the lights would project different colors.
For the light itself, you just need to pop in the battery into the unit. The unit has three wires that lead to three lights. I just used scotch tape to ensure the lights were in the exact spot for Rudolph’s red nose, an ornament, and the star. For the unit itself, I used double sided adhesive to attach to my card base. It was so easy to do!
They are definitely so easy to use and now I have a bunch of ideas for more cards.
Thanks for stopping by today and I hope you get inspired to create. Come back again soon for more inspiration and ideas! Happy Crafting!
