Buying your friends and family funny, thoughtful, or sentimental birthday cards is always a nice gesture.  If you’re an avid DIY enthusiast like us, however, then you know that it’s sometimes more meaningful for both people if what you give someone for their birthday is something that you made yourself! Making someone a birthday card doesn’t have to be hard, but it’ll definitely show them how much you care.
We'll leave the design work to you, but it's worth mentioning that you can download free birthday party invitation templates complete with safe area lines, bleed lines, cutlines, and pre-formatted in the proper sizes, resolution and color mode to take all the guesswork out of file setup (which vastly reduces the risk of costly press errors). Birthday party invitations are incredibly cheap to print when you know where to go, what options you need, and how to set up files. So, how cheap can you print birthday invitations? It all depends on the quantity - but let's just say you can print 50 for less than $70 total and 10,000 for less than 10 cents each!

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.

In good humor and all in fun, we praise our best friend by ironically honoring ourselves. But self-effacement is the real name of the game here. We honor our loved ones by elevating them even above ourselves in the scheme of our lives, and by wishing them all the joy they deserve on the anniversary of their birth.  Thus do we say “You’re a good friend to me and I wish we could always be together for the rest of our lives.”
A birthday is a time for you to sit back, relax, and enjoy, my friend. Every birthday we experience is another milestone of the distance we’ve traveled in the previous 365 days and the work we’ve done. All we have accomplished, gained, and lost in the previous year is lamented and celebrated on the anniversary of our birth. But it should also be a time of personal reflection and, hopefully, the perfect opportunity to celebrate and take pride in a year well lived, and a job well done.
This card has optional greetings: Happy New Year, Kung Hei Fat Choi, Wishing You Happiness and Prosperity, Happy Spring, Welcome Spring, Celebrate New Beginnings, Hope Springs Eternal, Stay Strong, With Sympathy, Have a Peaceful Day, Happy Birthday, Happy Anniversary, Thank You, Thinking of You, Get Well Soon, Just Saying Hi, You're Invited, Good Luck, [No Caption]

Cover Verse: For [Name], a Good Friend Inside Verse: One of the good things about getting older is that we eventually learn What is important and brightens our lives and what is of little concern... And one of the things that we learn through the years that has always been found to be true, Is how much it means to have a close friend who's a wonderful person like you. Happy Birthday
If you can’t attend the birthday celebration of your friend then you can send him/her a special birthday wish to let him/her know that you have not forgotten this day. I’ll miss you on your birthday. I wish we could be together to laugh and love and celebrate the day. Even though we can’t, I hope you know that my heart overflows with love for you. And today I’ll celebrate you and the wonderful moment that you came into my life — for on that day, my greatest dream was born. Perfect.

There’s just something about a paper greeting card that never loses its charm for some of us. We like to hold the greeting in our hands, feel the crisp paper, run our fingers over the words and pictures as if we were trying to absorb the essence of the message. Most of all we like to see the handwritten notes and the signatures of our loved ones. While ecards may be viewed instantly and forgotten over time, printed cards can be saved, cherished and shared for years. Although ecards have replaced printed cards in many instances as the more convenient, inexpensive and quick mode of wishing one another, printed cards still retain that special quality that electronic messages cannot convey effectively.
There are a lot of gift ideas you can choose from if you want your friend to be happy on this special occasion, and many ways to celebrate.  You can arrange to acquire and deliver the joy of a traditional birthday cake made especially for him or her. Or if you want your friend to laugh and giggle, send them funny birthday pictures or some unique morning quotes and wishes.

As your friend, you can always guarantee that I will always give you my support. Have a great birthday! Now we’re thinking of you, giving love and support in all you do. Sometimes it’s not easy to express gratitude to those we love, even our best friends. But being thankful is a habit we should get into, especially when it is so deeply and earnestly owed. Our best friends support us and keep us upright when we would fall. For all they do, the happiest of birthdays to them!
