Need a quick last minute birthday card you can make at home? This is often the case around my house… I spend days crafting the perfect DIY gift idea, and then the birthday card itself end up being an afterthought. Have you ever ended up purchasing an ugly store-bought greeting card because you ran out of time to make one for that awesome handmade gift you made? I certainly have. Now, though, I just keep a few rolls of washi tape in with my wrapping paper, along with some pretty white embossed paper. I found this cute handmade birthday card idea on Pinterest, and it has become my go to. Whip one up in minutes, but no one will ever know you did not spend hours making their card.
I wish you luck and happiness on this special day of your life. We all want the best of luck for those we love. This image speaks to me of how we move together down the stream of our lives, like boats, sometimes moving in small fleets, sometimes tying off to a pier together to rest in the safety of a shared harbor. Life can be that: a river, with its own streams, currents, and eddies. We wish the best of luck to our best friends, because we travel with them down that river, and share in that luck. Since good fortune leads to happiness, we wish both luck AND happiness to our best friend on their special day.

When it comes to birthdays, do you think the card matters as much as the gift? We do, and never want to be without the perfect handmade birthday card with a personal message. DIY birthday cards are one of the things people often keep longer than the gift, so we always want to make sure to give cards that are extra special and thoughtful. What better way to get a card like this than to make one? Well, this was my thought, anyway. However, when I went looking on Google and Pinterest for handmade DIY birthday card ideas, I did not find exactly what I was looking for. There were lots of free printables from big sites like Greeting Island, Blue Mountain, and even American Greetings, but those lacked the homemade touch I was going for. See, I make lots of my gifts, so adding a cheap looking printed card just won’t do. I was looking for inspiration and step by step tutorials for cute cards to make at home, ones I could be proud of. After the free cards, I came across more tutorials than I could count from sites trying to sell me scrapbook supplies and die cut templates. I understand you have to make money, DIY people, but please, don’t try to sell me stuff to make a simple greeting card, or at least show me I can make one without it. Not nice when you just want some birthday cards you can actually make! I was not looking for some frilly thing that came off looking like a scrapbook, anyway, thank you.
