  2. Taking the width of the card as reference, draw a cloud-like shape (as in the picture) on the remaining thick paper. Cut along its edges.

  3. Taking the reference of the cut-out, draw rounded curves at the top corners of the card and cut them, as in the picture (so the brown part isn't visible from beneath.

  4. Color the cut-out and cut a slit at its mid-part.

  5. Stick the cut-out on top of the card (take care not to glue the slit :).

  6. Cut a narrow strip from the remaining thick-paper. Cut its two ends like the flames of a candle (as in the picture). Fold it. Color it. Put it inside the slit of the white cut-out top.

Making the envelope :

  1. Fold the thinner paper in half and color its top flap.

  2. Place the card on top of it and taking reference from it, draw straight lines on all three sides (as in the picture). Cut along the side and the bottom lines. For the top line, cut only the upper flap of paper. Glue the side and the bottom.
