Hello there all you crafty people! My name is Amanda Fitterer and I’m addicted to everything creative! I was a part of The Hedgehog Hollow team and now I’ve transitioned to the Maker Forte team! I’m so excited to be able to share my projects with you, teach you new crafty things, and inspire you!

Today, I am sharing a “Gnome Love” card that lights up!

For the video tutorial, please click here.

To create this card, I stamped images from the “Gnome Love” Stamp Set. I colored the images with Copic markers and then fussy cut the images out using scissors.

To create my galaxy background, I used Snow Flurries Perfect Blend Cardstock and Distress Oxides.

I created my own mix of water and Picket Fence White Distress Ink Refill in my Mister Perfect spray bottle and then flicked “stars” onto the background.

I poked holes through the galaxy background where I wanted the stars to shine through using my Picker and Poker Tool.

Then, using a gel pen, I marked the stars through the holes onto my black cardstock. I also marked where the button would go.

Using my white gel pen guides, I taped down my EZ-Lights using Purple Tape. The Purple Tape allows me some wiggle room to move my lights and wires around without ripping my cardstock.
Because the button is pretty thick, I used Heffy Doodle’s Deep Foam Tape on the black cardstock. This will keep the button from making a “bump” in the finished card.

I adhered my card front to my card base and the stamped images to my card front. For my finishing touches, I added a few clear gem stones to my stars. These magnified the light shining from the EZ-Lights!

Here’s another look at the finished card!

Thank you so much for stopping by the Maker Forte blog today! I hope this tutorial inspired you to create something today! Xoxo, Amanda
