Easy Handmade Birthday Cards

This card should have been in the mail 5 days ago (this is becoming a recurring theme for me lately), so I needed a card that I could do quickly.

I only had plain white paper flower embellishments, so I dyed this one pink using an ink pad.


How To Make This Birthday Card

When you’re buying paper or fabric embellishments for your handmade Birthday cards, remember that these things can be colored with ink, markers, chalk, etc. — so just buy the white ones. Don’t bother stocking up on different colors. That way, you’ll always have the perfect color just when you need it!

This handmade birthday card was made using the following supplies:

  • Cardstock – Stampin’ Up Whisper White, Cameo Coral, Chocolate Chip
  • Ink – VersaMark (white embossed), Stampin’ Up Chocolate Chip, Pretty in Pink (used to dye the flower)
  • Stamps – Stampin’ Up Looks Like Spring, Birthday Greetings, Spring Bouquet Flower Punch
  • Extras – Metal brad, large flower

I love Stampin’ Up products and use them whenever I can.

You can certainly use any other products to make this card.

I encourage you to use this simple idea as your framework when making handmade birthday cards — and then branch out from there when making your own unique designs!
