A Toast to Your Birthday Card

This card features hand-drawn piece of toast and a pun.

Supplies

The things you will need for the greeting card are as follows. You can, of course, make changes based on what you have available.

  • Colored markers

  • Double-sided tape (or glue)
  • Black sketch pen/marker (other colors will also work)
  • White cardstock (for the base)

Instructions

  1. Start by taking an A4-size piece white cardstock and folding it in half to make a base for your greeting card.
  2. Take another piece of white cardstock and draw the outline of a piece of toast. You can use a Google search to a suitable image of the toast.
  3. Fill the outline with your favorite colors.
  4. Cut out the toast drawing from the white cardstock.
  5. Using a piece of the double-sided tape, stick the cutout on the greeting card base and write your message. I went with "A Toast To Your Birthday!"

Tip: You can also make the toast using different colored sheets of paper. You can also make the drawing directly on the base cardstock; I just wanted a more elevated look for the toast, so I went with the double-sided tape.
