What does a card maker do when she is invited to a surprise birthday party for the co-owner of the best pizza restaurant in town? She finds out what pizza toppings are the birthday girl’s favorite, and she makes her a pizza-shaped card. By hand. Without her Cricut machines. Then she brings the card to Twilight Pizza and surprises her friend with a custom birthday card!
There’s no filter on these photos. I tried adding a filter but it made the card photos look weird, so here they are – au natural!
If this looks familiar, you may have seen a few other blog posts I’ve written about pizza cards and a pizza picture frame. I assure you, this is a new blog post about a card I made in May 2014.
Using colored pencils, pens, scissors, a circle punch and scrap paper, I created some topping for the pizza card.
I added some double-sided foam adhesive between some of the layers like the crust and pepperoni so that the card had added dimension.
This was a surprise birthday party, so I added a surprise inside. Here’s where I actually did use the Cricut. I had the machine cut the cute background shape and the “50.”
Here’s one last picture of the pizza slice, which was long enough to fit into a #10 “standard” envelope.
