Step 2: Prepare Your Card

Fold your 1/2 sheet of white card stock in half to create a card.
Cut skyline out of black card stock. You can draw a simple skyline, print one from online and trace it, or go all-out like we did and design one to be cut on a Silhouette Cameo cutter. The important part of these instructions is the inside of the card, so I’m trusting you to make a killer skyline on your own.
Glue your skyline to the front of your card.

Our battery/switch is going to be in the lower-left corner, so fold about 1.5 inches of that corner diagonally.
To get the placement right, place a pencil in the middle of the folded dog-ear to make a mark on each side.
Also mark where you would like your lights to go. Use as many or as few as you wish. I went for a single star in my sky.
