Felt applique birthday card is another chance for me to play around with felt. I can’t seem to get enough of felt. In fact, I’ve gone out and get a few more colors of felt. :-)
By creating a simple felt applique piece, it turned a blank card to one that oozes charm! To make the felt flower on the applique stands out even more, I’ve stitched around it to draw more eyeballs to it.
Then to further make it more interesting, I’ve attached the applique to a piece of patterned paper with scallop-edged border.
Sometimes, a big decorative element as the central focus is all you need to make your own birthday card outstanding! Enjoy!

Card Making Steps
- Create a cardblank with aquamarine cardstock.
- Cut out a pink flower felt using a template or free-hand. Stitch around this flower with thread. Cut out a white felt circle, and another bigger green felt circle. Attach the pink flower to the white circle and the white circle to the green circle.
- Cut out an even bigger circle from green patterned paper. Trim around the edges with a scallop-edged scissors. Since it’s freehand, you would see that my circle isn’t perfect. ;-) Adhere it to the center of the cardblank. Attach the felt applique to the center of this circle patterned paper.
- Attach a strip of twill ribbon across the lower part of the cardblank. Use a black pen and handwrite greetings on the twill ribbon.
- Cut out a strip of yellow cardstock and trim one edge with the scallop-edged scissors. Attach it beneath the twill ribbon as shown.
