Custom Birthday Card

One of the things I love about making my own hand made cards is that I can customize the card to the person receiving it. For example, last month a friend of mine had a birthday. I knew she liked zebras, glitter, and the color green. Pretty slim pickings if I wanted all that in a store bought card, but within a few minutes, I had this whipped up in my craft room...

See the glimmer paper? It doesn't come in green. So I used a reinker and a sponge to make it the color I wanted! I ended up with ink everywhere, including on the front of the card in places I didn't want it. But no worries, I covered up the smudges with rhinestones!

If you want to start making your own birthday (and more) cards, why not host or attend one of my Birthday Card Buffets to get a head start on your year? Contact me for more information.
