Birthday Card Ideas

Try these birthday card ideas that are easy and simple and don't require a lot of time or supplies. Ribbon and glitter a just a few embellishment to add to your handmade card.

After a while, coming up with ideas can be frustrating but you can be inspired by different types of ribbon which is how this idea came about.

I was excited when I found the coordinated ribbon in the dollar section of the store. There were 5 different styles in one package which saved me the guesswork of coordinating ribbon colors.

I found a solid color paper to match the blue and used existing black and white scrapbook pattern paper from my supplies.
