It’s great to have a few handmade birthday cards on hand so when those special days sneak up you’re not scrambling to get a card made at the last minute. I’m hoping to do better at that in 2022 to make life a tiny bit less stressful. 🙂

I’ve got 3 quick and easy cards to share with you. They really are super easy to make! Here’s a tip I learned early on in my card making journey… If you’re making a card, go ahead and make 2 of the same design. You already have all the supplies out and making 2 cards only takes a few minutes longer.
For the first card, all you need is patterned paper and your favorite birthday sentiment stamp (this one is from the Hugs, Kisses, and Birthday Wishes stamp set from Unity Stamp Company). Cut a strip of patterned paper and attach it to a white card. Using a 1.5-inch circle punch, punch circles from 4 different patterned papers and attach them to the card. Stamp your sentiment with coordinating ink and punch it out with the circle punch. Attach it to the card with foam tape.
The next card is made with the cute cupcake from the More Than Cupcakes stamp set from Unity Stamp Company. I stamped the image on white card stock with Memento Tuxedo Black ink, colored it with Copic markers, and cut it out. I embossed a piece of turquoise card stock with a birthday embossing folder (similar to this or this) and attached it to a white card. I attached a strip of patterned paper and then added the cupcake using foam tape.
The stamp set for the last card is called Festive Balloon from Hero Arts. I stamped the sentiment and the balloons on white card stock with Memento Tuxedo Black ink and colored the balloons with Copic markers. Then I stamped the strings using the stamps in the set. I attached strips of 2 different patterned papers to the bottom of the panel. I attached a piece of green card stock to a white card and then attached the stamped panel to the card.
If you have 30 minutes or so, pull out your favorite birthday stamps and create a few quick and easy cards – you’ll be glad to have them on hand and ready to send to your favorite people!
