Handmade Birthday Card
Today is one of my very dearest friend's birthday, and instead of purchasing a card from the store, I decided to make one for her.
I've been very inspired by the current trend of using birds on cards and stationery. I also thought it would be cute to forgo the usual "Happy Birthday" and use another image to convey that sentiment.
I have lots of craft paper and card stock around from other projects, and I knew that would be a great place to start.
To make things easier on myself, I traced patterns for the speech bubble and bird, traced them onto the paper, and then cut out the shapes.
On the back, I cut out white card stock with paper edger scissors with a scalloped pattern.
