This homemade birthday card is made up of small rectangles of paper that have been rolled back to reveal a Prima flower in the centre of the card.
Prima flowers come in so many shapes and sizes you can easily adapt this card to fit with the papers you already have in your card making supplies.
Cut four different rectangles using a different patterned paper for each one. Make sure the rectangles are smaller than the front of the card so when you apply them they each have a small border around the edge.
I decided to use a blue A4 piece of card for the cards base. I used a bone tool and score board to fold the card in half.
Use a pencil or something similar to wrap around the corner edge of each of the paper rectangles. Hold it in place for a few seconds then let it unwind. This should leave the edges curled up. If it doesn’t repeat the process until it does.
Do this with each piece of paper so the corner facing the middle on each is curled up.
Attach each square of paper to the front of the card using double sided tape.
I wanted to place something in the centre of the card so I decided prima flowers which you can get from most craft stores, would be a good idea. I used colours that matched the pieces of paper and placed a brad through the centre to hold the flowers in place.
Use the brad to secure the flower to the centre of the card.
You will then need to put your happy birthday wording on your card. I have used peel off stickers to make the happy birthday words. I placed them onto white card then mat and layered it onto brown Bazzill cardstock and green Bazzill card stock.
You can make this card any theme you wish by simply changing the words, you may even want to personalise it by adding in a name or an age. As this card is quite simple and easy to make you could even make several and use them as a birthday invitation card.
I placed the happy birthday wording in the top left hand corner of the card however it can go on any of the rectangles it really is down to personal choice.
Any card maker should easily be able to make a birthday card like this one in a very short space of time. I like this card particularly as it is so adaptable. By changing the colours it can be suitable for both male and females, it can be used as a birthday invitation card and best of all it is a cheap card to make using up items you already have in your card making supplies.
