Oh happy day everyone!! It is collaboration day today - YAY!!!!!

Get ready for lots of inspiration, and be sure to comment as you hop along, for your chance to win a $50 store credit! 

So for my card I knew right away I wanted to light up my Anglerfish. I set my scene to be like you are under water and could see from both sides of my sunken ship through the porthole.

As you can see above I colored, cut all my pieces and attached everything except for my fish so it was read to go with the light
I taped down my button right behind the rock that says "PUSH HERE".  I then pulled my lights through my card to the front.  I taped my three lights together to the back of my fish and attached him to my card with an Action Wobbler.  So the fish moves along with lighting up.
Make sure you frame your battery pack and button so there is no moving once the card is attached.  I add a lot of tape to the back for support being it is such an intricate card. Have I told you; I LOVE THIS TAPE?  I do ... it is double thick foam tape so it frames your battery pack perfectly AND the best part ... The backing is SO EASY to remove!  By so easy I REALLY mean SO EASY ... I will NEVER buy any other foam tape again! 
Here you can see the close up of the fish and how he is sticking out from the card with the Wobbler.
Here is a close up of the Anglerfish and his light up antenna.  Isn't he just the cutest thing ever?  In real like these might be one of the ugliest fish in the ocean but here ... he is a darn cute fish!
One more look at the finished card ... Didn't I tell you these interactive lights are SO easy to use and put together?  Try one I promise you will not be disappointed ... you actually might just get hooked on Light Up Cards  LOL no pun intended!
Here is is lit up again ... I love the mood lighting; it is as if you really are underwater looking through a Porthole.

  1. Like the wood pothole look and the wonderful lighting of the fish for this underwater scene. Not tried the lights before and curious as to how long the light works for?

    1. Quite a long time ... You are pushing the button to activate the battery. I have a few I have had on display for over a year for sure!

  2. The Anglerfish in real life is scary looking yet kinda cool. This card is great. It shows him in a different light. (Pun intended) It's really a cute card. [Bunny]

  5. This is sooooo cute! I love how you are looking out the porthole into the ocean. Pair this set with mermaids or a treasure chest, just imagine the possibilities.

  6. Love the masculine look you gave your card.....and putting a light on the Anglerfish is..."brilliant"!!! LOL...couldn't resist once I got that bright idea of a pun. Ha.
