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.
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!
The designs from Omiyage are always some of my favorites, simple but stylish statements. By no surprise, these cute washi tape birthday cards were created by a designer, but are free as your inspiration. She has lots of cute birthday card ideas with washit tape that are simple to recreate at home and also lots of other fun things to look at. Paper crafts and washi tape crafts are her specialty, so if you have a little extra free time, be sure to poke around her site for more cool easy DIY ideas.
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.
Friends are precious, sometimes more than we would ever dare suspect… if angels are the best, the brightest, and the most beautiful manifestations of pure love we can imagine, it truly says something that we consider our best friends to be their equal in worth and brilliance. When we express our fondest birthday wishes for a friend, we contact the angels in some small way: the true angels of our own loving natures and the friendship we share. That’s well worth celebrating.
If you’re set on making all of your birthday cards but are struggling to find the time to make them, these five cards are super quick, and most importantly easy to make, and require only a few craft essentials to make them.

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.
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!
Don’t forget to send birthday wishes to your friend as a demonstration of the high regard in which you hold them. That’s what makes them your very best friend. It’s the perfect way to prove to the person who cares for you always that you return their feelings a hundred times over. Wishes and dreams are only magical if they are shared with those whom we love. We wish all of the hopes and dreams of our best friends will come true all the long days of the year.
Show your best friend how much you love him/her by spending his/her birthday with you. Don’t forget to celebrate, and that means party! A birthday is absolutely a worthy reason to express your appreciation for the best friend of your heart. Sometimes that means to kick up your heels and dance your butt off. Sure, some memories are bittersweet and time is fleeting. But that means there’s no time like the present to show your gratitude to the universe for sharing the life and times of your best friend.
There’s so much to love about our funny, cute, and photo upload cards, but we also have hundreds of designs from our favourite brands.

I wish that you can fulfill all your dreams and goals in life. The best wishes one can wish are that those you love experience success in all their endeavors and are granted the fruition of their lifelong dreams. May your birthday be the window which opens a million vistas that help you in the fulfillment of your dreams and accomplishments of your goals!
