Cheery yellow birthday card is created for my sister-in-law Amy. This is such a bright and sunny color scheme and is very apt to bring cheer to a cheerful woman relative or friend!
I like to use bright colors in making cards, especially when it’s for a birthday. I suppose it’s a day of celebration and happy feelings, so bright, striking colors could complement the occasion and mood wonderfully.
With bright yellow as the background, I’ve added in little feminine touches such as a red flower, dainty lace, and pink ribbon to sprinkles doses of prettiness to the card.
So if you’re looking to create a birthday card that’s bright and happy, try out this idea!

Card Making Steps

- Cut out a block of green cardstock. Doodle a border around it with black pen. Handwrite the greetings with black marker.
- Use a flower template to draw and trim out two sets of flower petals from red patterned paper. Use a black pen to outline the flower petals. Adhere the flower petals on top of one another. Curl up the flower petals slightly by rolling them up with a pen. Sew thread through the yellow button. Attach the button to the center of the flower. Attach the completed flower to the top left-hand corner of the green cardstock.
- Wrap a piece of pink ribbon around the green cardstock and tie a bow in front. Attach the completed green block to the top half of the yellow card.
- Cut out a block of colorful patterned paper and attach it to the lower half of the yellow card.
