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!

New Pizza Card

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.

Detail of 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.”

Surprise - you're 50!

Here’s one last picture of the pizza slice, which was long enough to fit into a #10 “standard” envelope.

About Stephanie Chumbley

Growing up in the shadow of the Space Needle, I loved drawing portraits with a #2 pencil and sometimes a ballpoint pen because I liked the challenge. I collected pens and pencils and enjoyed looking at fonts and logos and replicating them by hand. I was in AP art classes in high school and took some graphic design classes at Seattle Central. While in college, I had a part-time job making signs for Drug Emporium / Longs Drugs with my "Steph Font." In my 20s, I made a lot of invitations for dinner parties and later, when I bought my Cricut Expression electronic cutter in 2008, I started making cards for all occasions. In 2009, I discovered Close to My Heart and enjoyed being my Consultant's best customer... but in May 2011, I finally gave in and became and Independent Consultant. It was a very good decision! :-) Nearly everything I make is given away or sold so others can enjoy some handmade art. I've made over 1,000 cards and projects and this blog serves as a way to share and hopefully inspire others to create projects of their own. Someday I hope to catch up and blog about all the cards I've made.
