Make a Light Up Card 3

Hello friends!  This is Linh or LV Handcrafted across the socials. One of the easiest ways to create a fancy card is to light it up!  One of the things I love about crafting with digis is you can design your entire card front, even color it and then just print it out!  This means you can put your time into making the card a little extra special

To see me make this DIY light up card, check out the video below:

If you prefer written instructions, follow the steps below:

STEP 1
Design your card in your favorite photo editing software.  You can even digitally color in your design to save even more time!
