You could also change the wording so that it can be used for any occasion including a happy birthday card.
Begin making this greeting card by folding an A4 sheet of cardstock in half and use a corner cutter to make the edges curved. Then dig out two pieces of patterned paper from your card making supplies and attached them to the front of the card using double sided tape.
Then cut a sheet of blue paper into a long length and insert eyelets parallel to each other. I used fourteen eyelets but you can make the laces longer or shorter depending on your preference.
Next, use white ribbon and tie it through the eyelets like you would do with a shoelace. Attach the blue paper onto yellow paper and then onto brown card using strong double sided tape.
There are different ways of threading the ribbon to give it a different look, try missing out an eyelet or spacing them further apart for a different effect.
The panel with the ribbon on was then attached to the front of the greeting card using strong double sided tape.
I decided to print the happy birthday wording from my computer. To get it to fit down the side of the card I placed one letter underneath each other. Use a scalpel and metal edged ruler to cut out the birthday wording.
Then mat and layer the happy birthday wording onto the stripy paper and then green card using double sided tape. If you wanted to raise any of the layers simply swap the double sided tape for 3d foam
Another birthday greeting card idea that is really cheap to make and a great way to use up all those scraps from your card making supplies.
