Cards with LEDs add a touch of excitement to the Holiday season. For 2014, JHP Productions is introducing the Pin Hole Backlit LED Holiday Card. This step by step instructable will show you how to make this type of card yourself.
Pin Hole Art normally makes for a really cool textured design. However, for this project, we are going to use the holes to diffuse light instead. With a matrix of holes plus a black and white picture on top creates a simple aesthetic look…until the LEDs are turned on. The LEDs behind the holes add a soft glow to the picture and in this particular case, tell the story of Rudolph the Red Nose Reindeer travelling navigating through the foggy night with his glowing red nose.
