Project - The Cradle Ship Sparkly Birthday card

It's a shame that you can't really tell from the picture how beautifully shimmery and sparkly this card is!

This one's made using pearlescent card for picture and glitter card for the background.

For this one print:-

The Cradle Ship Motif sheet onto (snow) white pearlescent card
The Cradle Ship card and tags sheet onto white glitter card (Stardust brand or similar), preferably using a borderless setting

Stardust brand glitter card is the sort that has the glitter encapsulated in it. Don't try printing onto the loose, sugary kind of glitter card - you will no doubt mess up your printer!

To make the card, crease the card blank with a bone folder or embossing tool before cutting it out with a craft knife and ruler. Fold the card and trim further if necessary. 

Cut out a large motif and greeting with a craft knife and ruler. Mount both pieces onto larger pieces of silver metallic card with double-sided tape and trim round with your craft knife and ruler to leave a small border.

Add them to the card with double-sided tape. Finish the card by wrapping silver elasticated cord around the spine and tying it into a bow.
