Instructions : 1. Using “Do Not Stand”, stamp onto acetate using permanent ink. Dark brown used on sample but black or any dark color will do. Set aside to dry (or heat set if you wish). Trim the acetate to 4.25 x 5.5 inches.
2. Use a white or pastel card at least large enough to mount the acetate on while still having a border. Sample card is 6.5 x 5 inches when folded.
3. Choose three coordinating colors of paper for background. Any paper will do, including Mulberry or vellum. I used a soft Thai paper in peach, mint green and light blue for the sample.
4. Cut paper in strips slightly wider than your card. Tear strips of 1-2 inches across the larger strips. Layer the torn strips onto the card, overlapping each and allowing the torn edge to show. When card is completely covered, carefully trim off any excess paper from the edges.
5. Draw highlights onto the card with a liquid glue (Sailor works well for thin lines, tacky glue for wider) and sprinkle on glitter. I used Sunny Daze for the sample. Allow glue to dry completely and tap off any excess glitter.
6. Punch holes through card and acetate and insert eyelets if desired. Thread a ribbon through to mount the acetate onto the card.
