the Glitter paper. Run a bead of clear drying glue around
the edge of the glitter paper and adhere to the inside of the
front of the card.
Add a sentiment that will fit behind the glitter paper so it does not
show when the card is closed. Glue it into place on the inside of
You could also make a rectangle card to look like an
aquarium and cut a jagged edge across the top for a water line.
