I made this shimmery card for a card swap on the Craft Telly forum where the theme was to use acetate. I used the blue halves from sheets of Kanban Starlit Sky printed acetate and mirri card, overlaying the acetate so that it exactly matched the pattern on the mirri card.
I die cut two swirl accents and a swirly bird from turquoise and silver holographic card using Ellison dies. I used a Sakura Quickie glue pen to glue the swirls to the mirri card, and foam pads to adhere the swirly bird so that he would stand out a little more. I made holes in the acetate and mirri card using the smallest punch on my crop-a-dile and fixed them together using jewel brads. I then mounted the mirri card onto an A5 card (a blue sheet of A4 card folded in half) using double sided adhesive tape.
The Kanban Starlit Sky acetate / printed mirri card in purple and blue that I used to make this card is pictured above. Both acetate and card are printed with exactly the same pattern, so that they can be overlaid. If you like this idea, Foil Play has a great selection of Kanban co-ordinating duo printed card, acetate and mirri card.
