Use craft punches to make birthday cards that are pretty. Find lots of designs with ribbon and floral stickers for your beautiful handmade card ideas.
For making birthday cards, use a decorative border punch on white cardstock paper. I like to use a solid color so that the small details of the punch aren't lost. A dark, solid colored paper for the backing is preferable but you can use a print that doesn't have a lot of white on it. I also used a 1/2" corner punch around the sentiment.
Another craft punch I use often for my homemade card ideas are my circle punches. I have a scallop circle punch and a circle punch just a little bigger than the scallop circle punch. I created the sentiment with the circle punches. I also used a 1/4" corner punch for this birthday card design. The card is embellished with small silver beads that I strung through a narrow ribbon.
Feature pattern paper when you make a birthday card. I use this handmade card making design when I have a busy print or paper that has a lot of writing on it. The sentiment was printed on vellum paper and embellished with brads. I used a 1/2 corner punch and a decorative corner punch to round out the corners.
