A Simple Greeting Card

Nothing is as warm as making gifts by your own hands. So, today my junior college friends and I went to a restaurant for dinner. And one of them had just had her birthday (on 4th December). So I thought of gifting her a card wishing 'Belated Birthday'.

All you will need is papers, used invitation cards and pens!

Things you'll need-

  1. Pencil
  2. Markers
  3. Sketch-pens or Fine Liners
  4. Invitation card given by others
  5. Eraser
  6. Crayons
  7. Light shaded decorative paper


Take a light shaded paper (decorative or white), and write the message that you want, in pencil (as a draft).

Color and decorate the pencil-written message, with markers, sketch-pens or crayons.

Take an old invitation card.

Put your message inside it. You can stick the message, or keep it inside the fold, as I did. This step depends on your card-type. Don't forget to choose a card that suits your message's layout. (My message is in red, and the card is red too.)

Decorate the invitation card. (Optional)

Finally, put an u-pin or something to hold back the flips (if your invitation card is so).
Don't forget to use a matching u-pin!

So, now you know how to re-use the invitation cards?
