To create a birthday card, start with a pretty sticker. I found a set of stickers on sale so I had to get it but at the time, didn't know what I'd use it for until this birthday card design came to be.
I loved that this die-cut flower shape already had adhesive gems on it which made designing this greeting card easier.
I used my decorative corner punch to create an interesting detail since this card was a pretty simple design. I printed the sentiment on my laser printer and used a corner punch to round out the corners and used the same corner punch for the blue border around the sentiment. A blue satin bow helps tie all the colors together.
Make your own birthday cards and can personalize it. I used my laser printer to print out the sentiment on these homemade card ideas so I was able to add a name. These black, white and red cards are simple to make and you can create your own message.
Make birthday cards using craft punches.
I used Martha Stewart's Cherish, All Around the Page craft punch to create the decorative shape that holds the sentiment.
I used a half inch corner punch for the pink and tan paper to help soften the corners.
For your hand made card ideas, don't forget adhesive gems and pretty ribbon.
