Birthday Cards from Digital Scrapbooking Supplies


Birthday magic word art and kit by Kitty Designs

Why go out buy a birthday card when you have all the ingredients to make a customized card in minutes? If you are a digital scrapbooker, you most likely have kits, fonts, alphas, and even templates that can easily be used to create memorable birthday greetings to send by mail or on the web.

Digital kits can be reused over and over. This is great for layouts (read Janet’s great post on reusing kits here), but you can also extend the life of these same kits by finding other projects for them such as cards and gift tags.

Birthday kits can be use in a variety of ways to create one of a kind cards to print or share online. I (Katie) love this Little Mr. Big Man kit from Traci Reed because it has so many fun and bright birthday theme elements.

I know I can come up with several cards from the designs in this kit. Here’s one I created for my sweet nephew.

Another favorite birthday kit that I have used several times is Occasions by Shabby Princess.

I love to personalize a card by including a picture of the recipient in the design. It doesn’t have to be a recent picture, this is the perfect excuse to dig out some baby or youthful photos to use.

This Birthday Magic kit by Kitty Designs will also provide plenty of designs to use on special cards.

Of course you don’t have to limit yourself to using birthday theme kits, any kit can make a great card! The Embrace kit by Paislee Press and Fei Fei’s Stuff is perfect for elegant card designs. Feel free to use (and reuse) any kit that you want to to make your own special creations for friends and family.



If you print out your card creation, be sure to sign and date the card on the back for an extra special touch!
