- 8.3 x 5.8 inch black cardboard
- 8.3 x 5.8 inch light yellow cardboard
- quick-drying glue
- pair of compasses
- Artline 210 Fineliner Pen

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

- Glue the sun in the top right corner, and the house in the bottom right corner.
- Glue the orange cardboard to the front of the card, ensuring that it is an equal distance from the edges.
- With the Artline 210 Fineliner Pen, draw two birds in the sky.
- Cut a piece from the light yellow cardboard that can be glued to the inside of the card, where you can write a message.
