Hi everyone – Bri here! I’m excited for my very first i-Crafter blog post! Today I am sharing another holiday creation featuring the Tunnel Card, Santa Add-On, which is an add-on set for the Tunnel Card Base set. I just love all the wintery blue tones throughout the card. I made this 3D project extra special by turning it into a light up card! Check out the video below to see how the light up mechanism works.
With the Tunnel Card, Santa Add-On there are three background layers (circles) that line up perfectly into the tunnel base die. The front layer features the trees, the middle layer features the house, and the back layer features the reindeer and the sleigh. There are also several decorative elements in this set including trees, a house, and the “Happy Holidays” sentiment die.
To make the tunnel card I first cut out four tunnel bases, swapping out the scenic layers, and finally leaving the last one solid. I used the solid card base for the tunnel card background. I trimmed off the sides of the two inner layers, one at the score lines and the other a little past the score lines to give varying heights. To create the blue scenes I ink blended the layers with Distress Oxide inks and glued the bases in place.
I die cut and ink blended a few extra tree pieces. The extra trees help cover up the light up mechanism, which I attached behind the second card panel on the left hand side. I used a blue light from so the light-up feature could match the winter theme. I also die cut the house onto white card stock so it could stand out from the snowy scenery. I used gray ink to distress the cabin to give it more of a rustic feel. Finally, I stuck a piece of vellum behind the house die cut to create window and door shadows and adhered the house to the second card base. Below is a video showcasing the light-up feature of the tunnel card. If you have any questions feel free to reach out!
Thanks for stopping by today. Head over to my blog for more information on the supplies I used to create this card and for more i-Crafter inspiration. Check out my Instagram account for other recent creations here. I’ll be back soon with more projects to share. – Bri
