Pancake Day Card

Filed under: Paper Craft,Seasonal — sarah @ 1:03 pm

Shrove Tuesday or pancake day gave me an excuse to make this cool pancake tossing card to send to a friend.

Pancake Card

I chose royal purple card for the backdrop, brown card for the frying pan, glittery black card for the frying pan handle, orange card for the hot interior of the pan and yellow paper for the actual pancake.


I folded the purple card in half and then in half again to create the ‘card’ backdrop.

I cut the shapes out – though the frying pan handle had to be cut using the already cut frying pan as a template. The orange inner of the saucepan also had to be trimmed to fit. You probably should measure and mark with a pencil but I prefer to just start cutting!

I then arranged the shapes on the card. Once satisfied that it looked right, I started sticking them on. I had to weight down the corner of the card with the scissors to do so, otherwise the shapes were just pinging straight back off the card. The frying pan had to have the orange and black glued on it first before it was glued to the card. I stuck the pancake on last for alignment purposes.
