A Haunted Light-Up Card | Collab: Avery Elle + Chibitronics

Hi everyone,

I'm so excited to be participating in another fun Chibitronics collaboration.  Today we have teamed up with the Avery Elle design team to bring you some super fun projects.

I took the new Avery Elle chalet stamp set which features some really fun "build your own" Christmas-themed chalet, but I turned it into a spooky haunted house card for Halloween.  You can watch my YouTube video to see how I masked out parts of the stamp set to make it more Halloween-themed.  I also used the Avery Elle Merriest stamps for my sentiments.  I love these sentiments and I am pretty sure you'll be seeing a lot more of these in future projects.  I finished it off with their Wonky Stitches dies.

To make the card light-up, I started with the Chibitronics LED circuit sticker starter kit and made a parallel circuit, but instead of the starter kit lights (red, yellow, blue), I used the Tropical Lights add-ons to add more color.  I love the pinkish purple, green and orange lights.  They fit perfectly with any Halloween (or Mardi Gras) themed projects!

Here is the finished card:
