Felt flower birthday card is a fun and easy card making idea you can try out next time. It’s my first attempt working with felt for my card creation, and I was rather excited before I started on it. And after trying it out, I’m still excited about using felt! :-)
Felt comes in rainbow colors and you can create quite a number of things with felt – pouches, flowers, plushies, etc. It adds a wonderful texture and dimension to an otherwise flat paper.
Another good thing about felt is that the edges don’t fray like fabric, and so no additional sewing of seams is necessary.
If you’re wondering how to adhere felt to paper, for me I used strong double-sided tape.
This is an easy medium to work with and there’s much possibilities you can explore with it. Have fun playing with felt!

Card Making Steps
- Create a cardblank. Cut out a large block of yellow felt and adhere it to the front of cardblank.
- Cut out a brown flower from brown felt. You might want to trace the flower shape at the back of the felt before cutting it out. Next punch out a circle from a floral patterned paper. Adhere the floral circle to the felt flower center. Sew thread through the pink button and attach it to the center of the floral circle. Attach this flower applique to the bottom of cardblank.
- Cut out a strip of floral patterned paper and adhere it across the top of the cardblank.
- Handwrite greetings on a block of white paper. Ink the edges with black ink. Attach it below the floral patterned paper strip.
