I am always playing around with homemade birthday card ideas because I feel like those are one of the kinds of cards we always need. I love simple cards designs with touches of detail and this idea is definitely a keeper!  For this card I used the Nested Circle Scallop with Holes, Branches and Leaves, Flower Buds, Nested Circles and the sentiment from the It’s Spring Time.  

One of my homemade birthday card ideas featuring a small detailed element on an overall simple design for lots of visual impact

The Card Base

  • Use white cardstock to cut the A2 sized card base and white scallop layer.
  • Stamp the Happy Birthday sentiment on the card base using Nocturne ink.
  • Cut a strip of pink cardstock and run it through your straight crimper.  
  • Apply ATG adhesive to the crimped pink strip and attach it to the card base.
  • Apply pieces of mounting tape to the scallop layer and attach it to the card base.

The Wreath

  • Cut a circle wreath base using two small circle dies.
  • Use green cardstock to cut the two small leaf sections of the Branches and Leaves set.  
  • Place the leaf branches face up on the molding pad and gently form them using your leaf tool or small tipped stylus.
  • Begin attaching leaf branches to the base using glossy accents and over lapping the branches all the way around to fill in the wreath.
  • Use pink cardstock to cut tiny flowers.
  • Place them face up on the molding pad and push down in the center of each using a small tipped stylus.
  • Attach the flowers to the wreath using glossy accents.
  • Apply a generous amount to glossy accents to the back of the wreath base and attach it to the scalloped layer.

I like creating simple card designs that are fast and easy to make yet pack a big creative punch.  My project today is very feminine but you can check out my Sweet and Simple Birthday Card Ideas to see a project perfect for anyone.
