Light Up Castle Card
by Michelle Bala


Hello there! Michelle here, sharing a castle light up card. I used the newest Collage Dies: 

  • Fantasy Castle Collage Die
  • Imperial Castle Collage Die
  • Stone Keep Castle Collage Die


I die cut the castles using cardstock from 6x6 Paper Packs in shades Vibrant Violet, Lush Green, and Fresh Aqua.

I trimmed off the outer frames and just kept the Fantasy Castle and Imperial Castle. The Stone Keep Castle was left intact.

Layer them as shown and secure them with removable tape. Turn the layers over and place a piece of vellum paper over the back panel. 

Place the light mechanism ( I used an EZ- Light) on an area that can hide the battery pack. Place the lights in a few windows. Secure with clear tape.

Be sure to hide the wires and secure the wires down with tape.  



Turn the panels over and make sure the lights are placed correctly and works properly when pressed. If placement is good, than adhere all layers together.

Then flip the panels over to the back side again and place thick double sided foam tape on the back panel ( vellum side). 

Do not place foam tape over battery pack or lights.  You can place it over the wires. Adhere the panel to the card base (4 2/4 x 5 1/2 )

Next I die cut the frame using Double Stitch Rectangle Cut Out Die. Adhere the frame to the card base.  I printed out the words 'Press Here' than used the smallest die from the Shining Star Set Dies and cut it out. I used the stamp set, Majestic Achievements, stamped, colored and die cut the sentiments.

I adhered the rest of the embellishments.


Thanks for stopping by for a peek! Hope you give this a try!
