Instructions:

1. Let casting dry thoroughly. Then varnish the casting to seal it before painting (so wet paint won't make design disappear). Let dry. Optional: Apply a 2nd coat of varnish for more permanence. 
2. Apply silver paint to star design, and while it is still we, apply glitter if desired. Shake off residue. Let dry. Repeat with blue paint and glitter for flower in center. Let dry.
3.  Optional: Apply another coat of varnish to protect painted casting.
4.  Cut papers to fit your card and to then fit one over the other leaving nice borders. Glue 3 pieces together and let dry. Then glue them to the card.
5.  Glue casting to center of top paper on card.
