When you pull the tab the stars light up and the hidden text is revealed. Fun, right?
Here are the parts needed to make this kind of card. You need a card front and cut out a slit for the text to show up under. Save the cutout piece as you will need it later. Die-namics Surf & Turf has a perfect slit to use for this.
You will also need a cover to hide the circuit under the slit. I stamped my message on this and it will be revealed when sliding out the switch to light up the stars.
The circuit is built on a separate piece of cardstock and I’m using a sliding switch for this card. It’s basically an x-shape that goes through a slit in the paper and connects the copper tape both in the back and front when the switch is slid to the right position.
I also made another long piece to attach to the switch. The cover plate goes between this and the switch and this is what slides away to reveal the hidden message under it.
Here’s a close up of the circuit. It’s just a regular circuit with three lights and a switch, it’s just a bigger slider to show off the message and move the llama to the other side of the card.
I added some foam tape to the switch to make sure the connection is good, as well as around the card. I didn’t get a photo of the next step but I just attach the blank cover to the foam tape and the right outer side of the slider to the slider and backing. Then I attached the card front on top using glue, just making sure not to put any glue where the slider is moving.
No probllama, right? I hope you enjoyed this card tutorial and that you have fun on the hop. You can find the list below and don’t forget to leave a comment for a chance to win!
