Shine, It's Your Day!

Shine. It's your day! Using a petite LED from Papertrey Ink, the card actually lights up : ).

Here it is with the light turned off. The balloons are from Make It Market kit: Party Pop Up stamped in Limeade Ice, Aqua Mist, Pure Poppy, Blueberry ky and Summer Sunrise inks.  The streamers are from the Hooray stamp set stamped with Pure Poppy. The background of the manilla mat is Fair Isle Borders stamped with Fine Linen. The kraft background is the Make It Market kit: Nostalgic Notions stamped with Fine Linen.

The lamp and sentiment are from Lighten Up. The lamp base is stamped with Dark Chocolate and distressed with Vintage Touch Tea Dye (Chai). The lampshade is cut from Sheer Basics vellum Patterned Paper (the polka dots).  The sofa is plaid patterned paper diecut and stamped with On My Couch and edged with Vintage Touch Tea Dye (Chamomile). A strip of Tombow Multi Glue set aside to dry is behind the ink on both sides.

The die for the light to shine through is the pointy ribbon from Make It Market kit: All Through the House. I made a little pocket for the light with an arrow from Movers & Shakers Sentiments to point out the button. I might use a hole punch on the edge so the button is a little more noticeable.

Foam tape is used to give a little dimension to the sofa and some of the balloons. If I were to to mail the card, I'd put it in a padded envelope to keep the light from creasing the card, but it's not very thick.
