Chibitronics is SO cool! To create my card I started with lots of fun Avery Elle products! I stamped and colored Caroling Critters first. Then blending the sky with Distress Ink using the Falling Snow die to cut out sky (that will later light up!). Next I stamped the sentiment from the Comfort and Joy stamp set.



Once the front of the card was complete I was ready to work on the lights behind them!



To set up my lights I placed the battery behind the "bright" word of the sentiment, then placed the three lights in a row on the horizon of the scene. This will make the whole sky glow! TIP: I didn't want the animals to glow so I placed black cardstock behind them to block the light. TIP 2: I put a piece of copy paper behind my die cut hole to hind any copper tape and to diffuse the light. 


Finally, it was time to put it all together and light up the card! The lights are amazing! The glow is super cool! 



Enjoy the rest of the hop!

Christmas caroling is one of the best activities to do in December! I've loved every time I've done it... even if it was very cold and windy the last time I went. :) I love your design which pays tribute to this fun time. Your critters and background are colored perfectly and then the chibitronics add another fun element of light! Great card!
