How to Make a DIY Birthday Card

Send someone some love on their birthday with a handmade birthday card!  With this tutorial on How to Make a DIY Birthday Card, you'll learn how to create a fun and easy paper craft that anyone is sure to appreciate.  There's something special about getting a handmade card in the mail.  It's an old tradition that means a lot to everyone.  This DIY birthday card is easy and fun, and you can customize it to look however you'd like!

Happy Birthday Card


  • Card base 4-1/2 by 11 before scored (4-1/2 by 5-1/2 scored in the middle at 5-1/2)
  • Autherntique paper Pack
  • Random Hobby Lobby stamp set
  • Zing Embossing powder
  • White Gel pen
  • Adhesive of your choice
  • Embossing Pad
  • Fiskers border Punch





  1. Score your card base at 5-1/2
  2. Cut your layer paper 3-1/2 by 5-1/2 (This is the white paper you see on my card)
  3. Take your fiskers border punch and punch about 6 inches long (gives you room to cut off the edges of the layer)
  4. Attach the border punch to the side of the layer using adhesive
  5. Put your layer paper down with your border on the side down to your card base, Make sure its all even around all four edges!
  6. Stamp with black ink your Candles stamp, Then Color with your choice of marker/Colored Pencils
  7. Stamp the happy Birthday with embossing ink, Then take the embossing powder over it. It's nice to have a scratch paper for all the excess Embossing powder to go.
  8. I cut a banner out of the paper pack with a par of scissors, You can do the same or if you don't have to paper pack get creative! I'm sure theres something in your craft room that will work
  9. Take your Jell Pen and make tick lines around the edges of the card base, Its a great affect to really pull the card together!
