Handmade Birthday Card With Purple Flowers. If purple is one of your favourite colours, then you might like this birthday card that I made during the weekend. I am glad that I had a few extra hours to spend at my craft table. I am so behind schedule, I haven’t even made a single Christmas card and its almost the end of November.

But before I get busy making Christmas cards, I must complete making at least 5 birthday cards by next week. I have already completed 4, and I only need to make one more. Usually, I spend more than an hour to make each card. I love colours and I love details, so making even one card will take time.  I admit it that I am the biggest critic for all my paper craft projects.

Anyway about this Handmade Birthday Card With Purple Flowers, if any of you want to try and make it yourself, below is a short tutorial of what you need and how to make it. You will see in the photo below that there are pink paper flowers too. Usually, I will cut out two or more different shades of colours to see which one looks better on the card.

Step By Step Tutorial To Make A Handmade Birthday Card

1) First of all, you will need an A4 card for the base. You can also buy packs of blank cards to make a handmade card.  For this card, I used a white scalloped card from Create and Craft. If you are using an ordinary white A4 card, just fold it in half. To make it look prettier, use a border punch to punch out the edges of the card.

2) Layer your base card with a plain coloured card of your choice and a patterned card. I usually cut one inch smaller for each layer.

3) Finally, decorate your card and be as creative as you can. Remember to add a sentiment or a greeting for your card.

When it comes to handmade birthday cards for women, I prefer to get ideas from nature. I also take into consideration the receiver’s favourite colour, age group and personality. I will choose a much vibrant colour for a younger age group and some sort of pastel colour for the older group.

As for men’s birthday cards, I usually choose a much darker shade of colour and usually go for a more simpler pattern. But there are times when I will combine a few different colours to make the card look more attractive.

Compared to women’s cards, men’s cards are so much easier to make. It’s just that the ideas can get very limited and boring if you don’t mix a few shades of colours.
