Hello again friends,
It’s Rachel here showing off my take on the new Christmas Treat Lantern Add-On die set! I wanted to light this die set up since I first saw it. Since I just did a light up lantern, I thought it would be fun to create a Christmas card instead this time.
I started with the Buffalo Plaid Stencil and used a deep red ink over a vanilla cardstock. Next, I used the lights die from the Christmas Treat Lantern Add-On die set in the bottom center of the panel that I stenciled on. Used a dark green ink on the vanilla cardstock and ink smooshed the pad directly onto the cardstock, then used the lights die again to get the center pieces of the image. To create a yellow glow for the lights, I ink smooshed bright yellow ink onto vellum and glued it the back of the plaid panel. Once that was glued down, I added the green center pieces back into the image.
I used the “Merry & Bright” word dies and the snowflake from the Holiday Dovetail Card die set to decorate the card. Again, I ink smooshed a dark blue directly onto the vanilla cardstock. I cut out the words and five snowflakes. I cut two down so that I could position them on the edges.
I then took the holly and berries from the Christmas Treat Lantern Add-On die set and positioned them over the button to my Halo Lights, which is what I used to light up the card. I should have taken a picture of the back of the panel before I glued it down. I wanted something quick and easy and the Halo Lights were perfect, they have 4 built in LED lights. I positioned the lights so they hit the corners of the box instead of positioning it straight up and down.
You cane see how perfectly the lights worked with the box when it’s lit up.
I couldn’t be happier with how it turned out!
Here is a short video with the card in action! I hope that you enjoy it as much as I do!
