LED Lighted Card and Instructions

This weekend I tried to keep my mind busy with other things. My daughter did the same. She and her fiance went away for a weekend of fun with friends.

Today, I would like to share a fun card cutting file. Our son's birthday is coming up and I wanted to make him something fun, so I made an LED light up birthday card. I thought this card would be fun for others to make. I finished his card, then made a cutting file for those who are new to LED circuits to be able to do a "Print and Cut" they can follow. Inside the file you'll find a supply list, instructions, and both Studio V2 and V3 cutting files. I hope you get a chance to try this fun activity. It's also fun to do with children, You can use regular aluminum foil if you don't have copper tape. You can also find these supplies at other stores if you don't want to wait to get them from Amazon.

Even though I included a materials list in the folder I will also link them here. Copper is a better conductor, but the aluminum foil worked great.

  1. This is super cute!!!. I do have a ? for you. I know that there are a lot of people who don't comprehend written instructions. So, my ? is...could you please make a video showing how to put this card together.
    If you could, it would be wonderful.
    Thanks Debbie!

    1. Hi Bobbie, I am also a visual learner. I always say a picture is worth more than a thousand words to me. I am so sorry, but I don't know if I'll have the time or be able to get my video camera set to show how to make this card on video. I started back to work, have a remodel job going on, and a daughter who is soon to have surgery and I'll be taking care of her and my grandchildren. I'll try to see what I can do because I know it is much easier to learn from a video. Hugs, Debbie

  2. Wow Debbie, this is an awesome card!!!! It really puts a wow to the recipiant! Thanks for sharing your ideas!!!!

  3. I downloaded the file and I can't open it.
    I get a pop up box that asks me what program I want to use to open it with.
    I have Silhouette on my computer- but I don't see that under my listed programs. Is silhouette listed under something else I am not seeing? can you help
    Love the card and idea can't wait to try it.

    1. Hello, I just downloaded the file and it downloaded the zipped file. I double clicked on the zip file which opened the file inside and then I double clicked on this file and it showed me the Silhouette file icons. Please try dragging the cutting file to your desktop, make sure it has the Studio icon. You should be able to open it like any other Studio file. I can email each file to your directly if this will help. You can email me by clicking on the "Email Me" icon on the right hand side of my blog. Hugs, Debbie

  4. You totally amaze me with your creativeness and adventuresome spirit! I can't wait to see what you come up with next! Prayers are on the way!
