DIY Happy Birthday Sparkly Balloon card

red balloon happy birthday 1


  • The Paper Studio value pack ivory notecard/envelope 4″x5.5″ [Michaels]
  • MS Word: Word Art (to print “happy birthday”)
  • Gemstones by Paper Studio Red Balloon Gem/Glitter sticker (Hobby Lobby)

OrganizationLove Pro Tips:

  • I designed the words “happy birthday” in Microsoft Word and printed directly on the card – I made the outline red to match the balloon
  • I got the balloon sticker on clearance from Hobby Lobby, so I don’t know if it’s still for sale. It was tough to arrange the balloon “string” to lie flat, but it was doable!

As you can see, there’s not a lot to this card!

Caption Ideas:

  • Because there are already words on the front of the card, outer captions are not necessary
  • Inside notes:
    • Have a great day
    • Hope your day is as amazing as you
    • Party time
    • Celebrate


  • If my post inspires you, and you blog about it, I ask that you credit me! Also, I’d love to see it!
