Notes when making this card

  1. Spread glue evenly on the patterns when applying glue to the card cover. You can use a brush to spread glue on the card more evenly.
  2. Put glossy paper underneath the cover before spreading glue on it. That helps the small patterns on the cover will not be torn
  3. Be careful when sticking the cover to the base. You should stick the base on the cover.
