    E-mail is fun, but there’s nothing quite like a colorful, handmade card that comes with a stamp on it! Many people say snail mail is one of their favorite treats. When do you send friends and families cards? Birthdays, holidays, to say "Thanks!" or "I’m thinking of you!" are all good times to send unique, personalized messages!

    Fold white paper into the card shapes you want. If this is your first time using Crayola Color Switchers™ Markers, you may want to experiment on plain paper.

    To make a plaid card, draw diagonal lines with different colors of your Color Switchers™ Markers. Flip the marker and apply the color switcher to draw stripes in crossing diagonal lines. Watch the plaid design emerge on your card.

    On another card, try drawing different shapes with the markers. Then use Color Switchers™ to make patterns of lines or circles on top of the shapes. Your swirls will look like they could jump right off of the paper!
