Make a Special Birthday Card

Today I want to share with you how easy it is to make a beautiful handmade birthday card to celebrate someone special. Card making is easy, and it shows someone how much you care and that you value them by taking the time to make a special birthday card.

I also have a ton of card making tips to share today as we create this card. At first, it may look a bit difficult or complicated, but I promise – it is not! If you follow me, you know that I do not create anything hard! I am all about making quick and easy cards. But, I will say, this birthday card might take just a few minutes longer than my normal cards. Not because it’s hard, but because there are quite a few pieces.

As you watch the video, and my simple process to create the card, you will see that it’s so easy to make, just have to put all the pieces together!
