DIY Happy Birthday card

happy birthday presents red 1

Materials: 

  • The Paper Studio value pack ivory notecard/envelope 4″x5.5″ [Michaels]
  • Red printer paper
  • Janet Dunn Design present stamp
  • Ranger Archival Ink in “Jet Black”
  • Elmer’s Craft Bond Glue Pen 1 fl oz (dual sided, used the “wide spreader tip”
  • paper cutter

OrganizationLove Pro Tips:

  • I attempted to line up the long present stamp with the bottom of the card; this did not work well because the stamp itself was crooked, but not too bad at least
  • I cut a triangle of red printer paper to attach to the corner, and used a paper cutter to make a skinny line of red printer paper and glued to the bottom of the card
  • I mixed fonts for the words “happy” and “birthday” and I liked the way it looked
  • I attempted to color some presents/bows red in a previous attempt at the card, but I didn’t like it as much as I thought I would, so I kept the black and white

Caption Ideas:

  • Because there are already words on the front of the card, outer captions are not necessary
  • Inside notes:
    • Present time
    • Enjoy your day
    • Have a great day
    • Wishing the best for you

DIY It’s Your B Day Card

DIY It's Your B Day Card www.organizationlove.wordpress.com

Materials:

  • Recollections Card/Envelope 4″x5.5″ white
  • Letter stickers (gift)
  • .35mm Archival Ink pen
  • Elmer’s Craft Bond Tacky Glue 4 fl oz
  • ruler, pencil, eraser

OrganizationLove Pro Tips:

  • Use a pencil and ruler to draw a straight line to write “It’s Your” on. Trace letters in pen or ultra fine marker, wait to dry, then erase pencil lines.
  • Any sticker letters could be used for this. The ones I had happened to fit the card well, which is important.
  • If you wanted a perfectly polished look, you could also use a pencil and ruler to draw a straight line on the bottom of the card to precisely line up your sticker letters.

Caption Ideas:

Not sure any are needed, as there are words already covering the front, but perhaps inside:

  • Enjoy your day
  • It’s your special day
  • Happy birthday
  • Have a blast
