Moon Over Frozen Forest - a card that lights up

 I love making cards that light up.  In the past I have used Chibi lights, creating circuits with copper tape etc.  However I did not find that an easy process, so I found myself using this technique  less and  less. 

A week ago I discovered EZ-Lights, sold by Pear Blossom Press  and that make the process so much easier.

I also love sponging, and I used the new sponging brushes which will be available in the upcoming new Mini catalogue in January 2021. as well as the EZ-lights to make this forest scene light up.

A circle, die cut using a repositionable shipping label, was used to mask where the large moon would be located  on  a 3 3/4 by 5" piece of Whisper White card stock.
Using the new blending brushes, the following ink colours were used to create the night sky:  Pool Party, Mint Macaron, and Night of Navy.  Once the mask was removed, a bit of extra blending was done around the moon edges to give it a more 3D look , and over the moon surface so it did not look so starkly white.
Trees from "In the Pines" was stamped using Versa Mark ink and embossed with White embossing powder.
The sentiment , stamped with Night of Navy ink on Whisper White was matted with Night of Navy card stock , notched at both ends, and added to the bottom.
This art piece was matted with Night of Navy card stock.
Three holes were then poked where the lights would be shining through, and an X at the bottom next to the sentiment identified where to Push to activate the lights.

The poke holes are identified by a cluster of rhinestones.

After adding the lights, some rhinestones were added around and the lights tested.
It was then added to a top folding Thick Whisper White card base.

Supplies Used:
Stamp:  In the Pines
Inks:  Pool Party, Mint Macaron, Night of Navy, Versa Mark
Papers:  Thick Whisper White, Whisper White, Night of Navy
Accessories:  White embossing powder, E-Z lights, Rhinestones, Stitched circle dies
