For homemade card ideas, you can be inspired by sketches which helps outline the layout of your cards. I used an ebook I purchased online for making birthday cards.

Make birthday cards combining polka print with a solid color. This card below uses chip board die-cuts and ribbon to help embellish it. I also used a scallop border punch for the rectangle that holds the sentiment.

Design a birthday card using lots of embellishments. For my handmade birthday card, I started with the pink paisley print to use on the background and then embellished this card with adhesive gems, ribbon and die-cut shapes of a flower and leaf. The sentiment was printed on vellum paper and printed from my laser printer.

When I go shopping, I often buy pattern paper that appeals to me and then buy solids to match. I then look for hand made card ideas that can show off the print.

When you have a busy print, it's best to use a handmade card making idea that exposes a large part of the print which is how I came up with this design. This layout is great since the print the focal point is only cover up at the corner with a small personalized message strip.

I used my corner punch to punch out all four corners of the print and card and then used a decorative scallop punch on another coordinating solid paper. This birthday card design can also be used for thank you or get well soon cards.
