So Tweet birthday card idea is inspired by a piece of adorable and sweet patterned paper which my little niece likes! It’s full of little birds and I believe it’ll make an extra cute card for her upcoming birthday in late April. :-)
When making cards, it’s a fun and easy approach looking to patterned paper for inspiration.
My niece loves pink and naturally a pink color theme came up. But to add in a bright happy look, in addition to pink, I’ve thrown in a mix of other colors such as green, blue, red, brown, etc. The result is a cute and fun-looking card that looks “busy” enough to keep the girl enthralled.
Try this “window-frame” style design for your next card!

Card Making Steps
- Create a three-panel cardblank with pink cardstock.
- Adhere a strip of pink ribbon across the bottom of the cardblank and cut it up in the middle so the flaps can be opened up.
- Cut out a mixture of small blocks from green patterned paper, birdie patterned paper and blue cardstock. Adhere them in the layout as shown on the cardblank. Use a black pen to doodle borders for all these “window frames”.
- Punch out two small pink flowers from pink cardstock using a paper punch. Cut out two big polka-dot flowers from the polka-dot patterned paper using a template. Layer the small pink flower on top of the big polka-dot flower and attach a flower brad as the flower center. Attach each completed flower to the two green “window-frames” as shown.
- Use a black pen to handwrite the greetings on the two blue “window-frames”.
- Attach a big blue button at the center of the left flap as shown.
