It is always nice to gift a hand made greeting card than gifting a ready made card. Of course It takes a little time but it pays off when your friend appreciates your effort :) Check this out to make a card for your loved ones!

Step 1: Things You Will Need.

  • Colour card sheet papers.
  • A pen

I choose red card sheet. Fold it into half.
