Africa is known for its beautiful sunsets, and I wanted to make a card to commemorate this.

Approximate Time: 30 minutes




  1. Fold cream-colored cardboard in half to create a card 4.1 x 5.6 inches ~ use the ruler to make the fold neat and smooth.

  2. Cut out the first house from the pattern sheet. Place it on the light yellow cardboard and trace around the edges. Then, cut out the house from the yellow cardboard.

  3. Cut out the second house from the pattern sheet. Place it on the black cardboard and trace around the edges. Then, cut out this house from the black cardboard.


  4. Glue the black house on top of the yellow house ~ it will now look as if a light is coming from inside the house.

  5. Cut out the tree section from the pattern sheet, and place it on the edge of the black cardboard. Trace around the pattern and then cut it out.

  6. Use the pair of compasses and the pencil to draw a small circle for the sun on the light yellow cardboard, and cut it out.

  7. Glue the tree section on the bottom edge of the dark orange cardboard.


  8. Glue the sun in the top right corner, and the house in the bottom right corner.

  9. Glue the orange cardboard to the front of the card, ensuring that it is an equal distance from the edges.


  10. With the Artline 210 Fineliner Pen, draw two birds in the sky.

  11. Cut a piece from the light yellow cardboard that can be glued to the inside of the card, where you can write a message.
