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.”

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.
Think of things about the person that you can include to make it personal. Think of something personal about the person you are writing for. For example, maybe the person plays golf. Then you can wish them a happy birthday as it relates to golf. You could write: “I hope your birthday is much better than par. I hope it’s a hole in one.” Or for someone who plays guitar, you could write, “I hope your birthday rocks as much as you do!” Mention a positive quality about the person who is having a birthday. For example, you might write something like, “Your life has been a blessing to me here at work, because you bring a positive attitude to everything you do.”
Make your friend feel important by making his birthday a memorable one. A beautiful day is a day when it’s not cold, and the weather looks favorably down and graces us with soft warmth and gentle light. As the sun gives light, so it also gives life. We turn our eyes to the warm sun and proceed along our way with the wind at our heels — and at our back — allowing us to move unhindered into the future of our day. On their birthday, we wish the very same joy to you, best friend, in celebration of your special day.

I don't know if it's just the Avery software of what but these do not print the way that you see them on screen. It's incredibly frustrating when something is centered and there should be no problem with it printing centered on both the front and back but the cards end up overlapping and you can't print doubled sided because they just don't print right. I never have this type of problem when I print regular index cards or word/pdf documents so I'm going with its an Avery software glitch but as long as you print one-sided they're OK.

I use these not only as bday cards but as invitations to bday parties since they are blank inside. I'm most pleased to have purchased this set since I send out a lot of bday cards, and this has a great price per piece. Vibrant colors, fun photo pix, and you don't have to worry about some cheesy poem in the center. Just write happy bday and your own note and you're good to go. Good card stock, and I love the yellow bright envelopes.
Whew, it feels like we just barely made it through the Christmas holiday season, but now Valentine’s Day is just around the corner! I made these ninja printable Valentine’s Day cards at the request of my seven-year-old son who asked if I would design “some valentines for boys – with no glittery hearts or love and all that girly stuff!” After reminding him that valentines cards are for Valentine’s Day and all, he finally relented and let me add a few hearts to the cards…as long as they weren’t glittery!

How great would be to have a dear friend who will greet us like this on the special occasion of our birthday? We all worry about how the whims of fortune will impact us on a personal level. We universally admire those who seem to be the luckiest among us, those for whom the dice always seem to roll the highest numbers, the constant recipients of “happy accidents.” Luck is very important in how we see our world. So it makes perfect sense to wish our best friend the very best luck on their birthday. Since our birthdays are the special anniversary of our entry into the world, what better day to receive the collective blessings of the universe? And to share that good fortune with those who love us.
You deserve to have a lot of happiness on your birthday. We love the pretty cards and sentiments we encounter, but they mask a deeper truth. Even if we get distracted and misdirected by other matters in our lives, we can still express our love and appreciation by assuring our best friend that no matter our circumstances we always wish the best for them.

There’s nothing more wonderful than wishing your best friend a good life on this special day. Wine itself has long been representative of the finest things in life, those things that improve with age and are well worth waiting for. A good life, like a good friendship, can be like that: enjoyable, delicious, and finer and sweeter the longer it exists. With this sentiment, we wish our best friend the very best life they can live, that it will be like a fine wine and always grow better and more precious as years pass.

Among the great symbols of life and hope in the world, the sea remains one of the most powerful. Ever constant but always changing, powerful, vast, and beautiful, the ocean is a suitable image to mentally conjure when one imagines what best symbolizes the fixed-but-fluid universe. The stars are another great symbol of life and the universe, so it’s comforting that there are stars in the sea as well… starfish. All is connected. Maybe two best friends can be imagined as a pair of starfish on a beach, under a sunset sky, facing the starlit night together. We make wishes on stars of all kinds and hope they come true for our loved ones on their birthdays.
Writing tip: Ages 16, 18, 21, 30, 40, 50, 60, 65, 70, 75, 80, 85, 90, 95 and 100 are traditionally considered milestones. Cards specific to these birthdays will feature the age number prominently in their design, but you can make any card a milestone card (or any birthday a milestone birthday) by writing that shiny new age number somewhere in your personal message.
