You can simply draw it yourself as it consists of straight edges, which means all you need is a metal edge ruler, pencil and a sharp pair of scissors.
Find a sheet of pink card and fold it in half leaving the folded edge on the left hand side.
Draw the number one onto the card using a ruler. Make sure the edges of the number one meet the folded edge, so when the card is cut out and opened it stays joined and doesn’t fall apart.
Cut out the number one using very sharp scissors, or if you’re careful a paper trimmer may also work.
If you are attempting to cut this using a scalpel then make sure the card you have used is not too thick as this will cause great difficulty when trying to cut through it.
Select a sheet of scrapbook paper from your card making supplies and place this over the front of your number one. Use double sided tape to secure it in place.
Use a scalpel to carefully cut around the edges of the number one so the front of the card is covered in the paper you have chosen for your happy birthday cards base. If the card you are making is for a boy, simply change the colours accordingly.
You then need to find an embellishment or picture to use for the focal point of the card. This image is in actual fact cut from a sheet of wrapping paper. If you have more than one image you can easily decoupage it or leave it flat as I have done so here.
Other ideas for this part of your happy birthday card could include stamped images or even a picture of who the card is for.
Attach the image to the front of the card using double sided tape. If the image is bigger that the centre of the number one you can still use it however, make sure that it is still clear that the shape of the card is a number.
The image I used has a small bow on it. To make your image more realistic you need to select a piece of ribbon that corresponds with the picture and tie it in a small bow.
Attach the bow to the front of the happy birthday card using a large sticky dot or extra strong double sided tape.
At this point you may want to personalise the card even further by adding the child’s name or your special birthday card messages. I have used peel off stickers however you could also use rub ons or print the name in a font of your choice using a printer.
You can then accessorise the bottom of the card using anything you wish from your card making supplies. Here I have used red buttons and attached them using strong double sided tape.
Making cards is always great fun as you know it’s for a special occasion.
