Light Up Card with Winnie

Welcome to December 2021 The Paper Funday Challenges where Anything Goes with an optional twist: Holiday Time. Our sponsors for this month are Besties and Polkadoodles.

For this month we are also partnering with Double Trouble Challenge #99:

All great fun!
I started with this digital stamp from Polkadoodles called Lantern - Winnie White Christmas Printables:
It was printed on our Brother Laser Printer on watercolor paper and watercolored with The Stamp Market's 24 Pan Color Crush Watercolor Palette:
Beautiful vibrant colors that blend perfectly. The lantern was colored in with a silver metallic pen and the background has Brutus Monroe's Glitter Glaze brushed through the Confetti Toss Stencil by Taylored Expressions:
The background paper in red is from Polkadoodles, too. It is from Work & Play 5 Festive Hollybobs:
What I love about digital paper is that it can be re-sized to fit as needed. I've used this paper quite a lot this year for cards, gift card holders, envelopes and tags. There are 5 different colors of this particular image in the Work & Play 5 Festive Hollybobs set, but there are 22 different designs with 5 colors each! It is an amazing bargain and so versatile, too.
The fun part begins now! I added Pear Blossom lights to the lantern (see the little PUSH ME) tag on the card. These are so easy to add and make a card so special.
You just need to make the card with foam on the inside to make it high enough to hold the battery and cords. It's similar to making a shaker card. Then I just poked 3 holes in the lantern with a sharp tool and fed the lights through them.
So fun and with Polkadoodles' digital stamps it makes cardmaking a breeze. A big thanks to our sponsors this month.
Happy Holidays everyone and I look forward to seeing your beautiful work on the challenge!
