I used this lovely llama set called Llama Love and the coordinating dies for my focal image. I adore llamas and there are a lot of fun plants and texts to go with them.

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.

If it's crafty I have probably tried it. Or plan to try it tomorrow. I love to be creative in all ways, but I tend to gravitate to making cards, coloring and diecutting. I also have a bad yarn shopping.... ehm... KNITTING... habit. I live in Sweden with my husband, two cute minions (also known as kids) and three dogs. I work from home at a small international development company during the days, and craft while listening to audio books or follow my favourite series at nights and on weekends. I love it when I don't have to leave the house, being an introvert and socially awkward and all. That's why my slippers to shoe ratio is close to 1:1 and I'm not ashamed to admit it ;)

    1. Thank you, ​Mary! You really should try the lights, they are so much fun and you’ll start looking at your stamp sets in a whole different way knowing you can make them light up too :) Good luck and have fun!

    1. The colored lights are always fun, but the aurora effect on the dark background was all accidental and I was pleasantly surprised when I noticed it :) Thank you for your kind words, I hope you enjoyed the hop!

  2. No prob-llama! lol That is super cute. Great idea on the slider cover. I made that mistake and have an open channel that I can see the copper tape though. But I’m learning! Thanks for sharing your how-to on this great card.

    1. Interactive cards can be super tricky at times, I had to really think before figuring out how to hide the tape for this one. Good thing is that everyone shared a lot of good ideas on this hop so we can learn all from each other. My Chibitronics teammates are genius, they always impress me with their solutions and I learn so much from them. I hope you got a lot of inspiration and had fun hopping. I know I did :) Thank you so much for your kind words!

  3. The llama is so cute and the light-up feature really adds an element of fun! These kits look like a lot of fun to create with.

    1. Yeah, all the llamas in the set are so cute! I have a little pile of them colored up on my desk because I just can’t stop making one in each color I can think of. The chibis are really awesome, once you start you can’t stop coming up with new ways of lighting things up. You will never look at your stamp sets the same, promise! I hope you had fun hopping! Thank you for your kind comment!
