I have been remiss in sharing this card that I made as my first design team project for Ink Road Stamps! It was published the other week, but unfortunately, I’m just getting around to sharing it on my blog today.

Building the card:
I used two stamp sets for this card, Compliments Volume 2 and Iconic. I LOVE how perfectly the icons in the Iconic set work with the Compliments set!

To start stamped my sentiment using some orange ink that matched some orange cardstock I had. Next, I masked off the sentiment so that I could stamp the lightbulb and overlap the sentiment. Very carefully I cut out the inside of the lightbulb using a craft knife and ran my Copic Marker along the inside so as to help disguise the white line that was created.

Using Stazon Ink in black, I stamped the lightbulb again onto vellum, flipped the vellum around, and colored the backside yellow. I adhered this vellum to the underside of my stamped card panel, but I did this step much too early, it should have been one of the last steps I made. Doing so early made lining up the Memory Light a bit tricky, and honestly, it is centered out of luck.

I cut some fun foam down to a size slightly smaller than my card panel. On the foam, I created a “room” for the lightbulb as well as a path for the wires to run. I liked using the Memory Lights because EVERYTHING was all wired for me, ready to go, and the “Press Here” section is uniform and clean from piece to piece, this makes building the inside SO easy.

Once everything was lined up and I knew where everything went, I stamped a “Press Here” stamp over the appropriate spot using the lightest gray ink I had and stamping off beforehand so that the stamp wasn’t very visually distracting when the light isn’t on.

Using Memory Lights, and a Post-It Note, this card was a dream to whip up, perfect for your masculine card needs or just for someone who likes simplicity.
