Hi Folks! I'm excited to share another card featuring the magic of Chibitronics, only this time it's combined with the super-popular Lawn Fawn stamps and dies. This is the first day of a three day collaboration between the Chibitronics and Lawn Fawn teams. This adorable hamster from Wheelie Like You is working as hard as he can to generate enough power to turn on the strands of lights above. The question is, can he do it?
Well of course he can!
Let's take a closer look ...
The hamster and his wheel are popped up, and underneath them all is the battery that will operate the light bulbs when pressed. The "you turn me on" sentiment is actually meant to go with the light bulbs from the Turn Me On set, but instead I was excited by how perfectly it fits with the hamster wheel turning, and of course the light bulbs turning on. He is truly "turning" the lights on!
The light bulbs from Turn Me On are stamped and embossed on vellum. I've cut a circle from the panel underneath the bulbs so the lights can really shine through. Initially the circuitry and lights were showing through the holes, so I went back and put another layer of vellum across the hole to hide all the mechanics. I left the bulbs hanging forward to give them dimension without adding any more bulk. They are strung from the special Lawn Fawn baker's twine that nicely comes with your orders. I was happy to be able to make use of that right away and not hoard it for the next several years!
The baker's twine is also tied to the hamster wheel, to carry all the generated power up to the lights.
Here's a quick video showing the lights going on and off. So fun!
