Birthday card for boy – I created these two homemade cards for my two nephews’ upcoming 4th birthday. They are a pair of non-identical twins. They are into robots lately. So yes, it’s fantastic that I found a perfect patterned paper that features robots and stuff that’s designed for boys!
From one piece of patterned paper, I’m able to come up with two slightly different and yet very boyish-looking cards that I’m hoping will win their hearts over. :-) This is such an easy approach, find out what the birthday boy is into and then features that item on the card.
To add dimension to the robots, I’ve added foam pads to make them stand out even more.
If you can source for some patterned papers designed with boys in mind, it’ll certainly help your card making a lot easier! Enjoy!

- Create a cardblank using blue cardstock.
- Cut out two different patterned blocks from the boy patterned paper and adhere them to the cardblank as shown.

- Use the tag labeler to tag out the black greeting tag and attach it to bottom of the card as shown.
- Handwrite name on cardstock using a black pen. Attach it to the top of the card as shown.
