To begin, I cut Strathmore Bristol Smooth card stock with Slimline Starter Die-namics and sponged it with Broken China, Mermaid Lagoon, Blueprint Sketch, and Black Soot Distress Inks. Once it was dry I spattered it with white craft ink for a flurry of snow.
Here you see it in action, once the button is pressed. These little guys put out a ton of light!!
Here's a still with the lights off...
...and one with the lights on.
After I completed the background, I die cut the snowflake openings and added the lights to the back.
The snowflakes on one layer of foam allow lots of light to come around them as well as through the holes.
Always test your lights before fully assembling the card front ;-)
