Birthday Card Design

For a birthday card design, you can incorporate die-cut shapes, ribbon other embellishments. On this page you'll find ideas for making birthday cards that are handmade.

I'll show you homemade birthday cards using corner punches, brads and card making software programs. Glitter can help enhance the look of your birthday greeting.

This is a simple birthday card idea you can easily make. You just need a decorative border punch and a corner punch to use on the corners of the sentiment. Pick a fancy script font if you are printing it.

You can either print out the sentiment or use your favorite stamp.

The flower on the corner is a chip board die-cut shape which already had adhesive and gems on it.

Microsoft offers free clip art. Search under "birthday" and find tons of images to get your creativity started. You can find other ideas using the same clip art.

I used metallic stickers to help cover up the selvages from the ribbon and softened the edges by using chalk paint to outline the edges.

If you have a software program to create your own birthday card, then take advantage of it. I used one called ECard Wizard where I printed the background separately from the bees. I added glitter to the bees and used foam tape on them so that they protruded a little from the card. For this birthday card design, I added yellow floral brads and gingham ribbon.
