I made this card for my boyfriend's father, for his birthday. I used hard paper, i think it was from an old calender. I painted the entire cover with acrylic paint-different colors-i think green, yellow, and red. The focal piece was again, a pniece of harder paper that I spray painted with a can of gold spray paint I had. (gold spray paint comes in handy for so, so many projects I have found) Last, added tinfoil to the corners. The inside was neat too, but I don't have any photos. Sorry.
