Photo Birthday Card

This photo birthday card is highly personalized because it features photos of the birthday kid! In my case, the photo card was created for my niece Claire’s third birthday.

While flipping through my photo box, I came across four older photos which had her face still remaining intact in each of these four used photos. Instead of throwing away these less than perfect and used photos, I decided to recycle them and turn them into a photo card. :-)

Photo birthday card - handmade for kids

Kids photo cards can be very well-received especially by the parents, as it’s showcasing a few little snapshots or a single big photo of the kid.

If you happened to have candid shots of the kid, why not create a photo card which is more than likely to be kept as a keepsake to be savored many years down the road?

Card Making Steps

  3. Piece together a “birthday cake” with two pieces of patterned papers inked at the edges. Then draw “candles” with a black pen. Adhere three paper flowers to the top of the candles with foam pads. Adhere a foam heart to top layer of the cake.
  4. Use rub-on to create the “Happy Birthday” sentiments beneath the cake.
  5. Punch the four corners of the card with a corner-rounder. Doodle a border frame for the card using the black pen.
