You may be someone who wants to learn how to make simple birthday cards. You may be a busy mom who doesn’t have plenty of time to make birthday cards that are complicated and time-consuming.

On this birthday card making website, you’ll find many fun, easy and cheery card making ideas that don’t take up lot of time to create. Many of these handmade cards can be completed quickly and be sent off to your family or friends.

Let me share with you how you can follow “maps” to create many pretty cards, or even how a single “map” can be recycled to create various birthday card designs. It has something to do with card sketches… Card sketches  offer almost a foolproof way to making attractive cards anytime, and it’s such a time-saver.

Go to Handmade Birthday Cards

I started to make my own birthday cards because I wanted to make full use of my scrapbook paper and supplies. Scrapbookers already own craft supplies perfect for card making. With some cardstock, patterned paper, and embellishments, you are on your way to hand make cards!

If you are in urgent need to turn out a few birthday cards and you simply can’t find time to sit down and make any from scratch… Relax… I’ve designed a series of simple, colorful and printable birthday cards to print out for such emergencies.

There’s also a corner here where you can find birthday card verses to write in your homemade or printable happy birthday cards. My self-written birthday card greetings, my new collection of birthday messages, and a complied list of famous birthday quotes, will keep your birthday wishes flowing. I have birthday poems to share as well. :-)

Another thing, the birthday card ideas you find here aren’t just for birthdays, you can adapt the ideas into thank you cards, love cards, retirement cards, graduation greeting cards and cards for other occasions.

Okay, it’s time to make a birthday card today to spread a bit of handmade love on someone’s special day!
