Happy Circles Birthday Card

Happy circles birthday card idea is inspired by the circle shapes on a gorgeous red patterned paper. By pulling together another patterned paper and a few cute buttons showing similar circular shapes, a card with a sense of unity is born.

Geometric shapes tend to be more bold and they can create fun and cute looking designs. So the next time you want to create a card quickly, think of geometric shapes, look through your supplies, and mix-and-match items showing the same shape!

To add a more random look to the card, I’ve chosen to handwrite my greetings. If you have a cutter machine, you’ll be able to create more polished looking greetings for your homemade cards.
