How about this...a free download. Now you can refill your birthday card stash and never be caught unprepared! I think with the colors I chose for this design, it can go either masculine or feminine, but I'll let you decide.
It's a 4x6 download. I know a lot of people don't have their own color printers at home, so this way you can upload it and print it as a 4x6 photograph, if that's the way you roll. Wait for some of those really great coupon codes and get bunches printed at once and then sit down and make a ton of cards. I used 60 lb. smooth cardstock to print mine. Find the download above, in the menu bar or in the Downloads section of my sidebar.
You can trim it to place on the front of a card like these:
Trim the 4x6 to fit on the front of a card blank, round two corners and adhere.
Trim the happy birthday download, round all four corners and adhere to a card made with your own patterned paper. Make your own candles to embellish the envelope by rolling some paper around a pencil and use your glue dots to hold the paper in place. Add a piece of shipping twine down inside the "candle" to mimic the wick.
I made a card so that it flips up and decided to round all four corners of both the card and the download sentiment.
Or put it on the birthday person's memo board at work, as a surprise:
It would also be nice to stick on the mirror, don't you think, so it's the first thing the birthday person sees when they wake up:
It can even be framed, just because you can, or hang it in your craft room because the happy colors make you smile and it's your own special day! Find the download at the top of this post, in the menu bar or in the Downloads section of my sidebar.
Only three more years before I hit the 5-oh, so I'm gonna make 'em good ones!
