  6. Punch some holes in the white sheet and glue the round shapes on the card.
  7. Paint your message on the top, with the white paint, using the paintbrush (tip: if you find difficulty in using paint brush, you can use sketch pens or whatever medium seems convenient).

  8. The card is now ready! Write a special message inside.

Making the envelope:

  1. Cut the yellow scrap of paper a little longer and wider than the size of your card.
  2. Place the card on the base of the paper and fold the paper according to the length of the card (take care to leave enough space on top for folding the flap). Then keeping the card at the center of the paper and using a scale, draw two parallel lines on both sides of the card.
  3. Cut the front and the top flap according to the lines, fold, and paste the sides as shown.

And...its done!
