When I was younger I loved making pop up cards (inspired by my love of pop up books!) I love the fact that you can type in a message into the ‘computer screen’ or the typewriter ‘paper’! But the one I like the most is the Polaroid camera - I’m thinking this is perfect for Father’s day - I’ll add a picture of myself and Dad. How cool is that!? Plus Brit + Co has the three pics featured in the tutorial available to use in a free download.
Star Sign Notecards | Free People Blog
Did y’all get to see Venus this week? It was so exciting! Things like that always make me feel so small yet amazing to be part of. I’m a little obsessed with the stars and immediately fell in love with these star sign notecards from Free People. Though I take my star sign with a pinch of salt, it’s still sweet to give to a friend as an alternative to a birthday card - or you could even frame it and make it a gift!
Save The Date Card | Ellinee
We all know weddings can be incredibly expensive, so saving a few dollars here and there adds up! The only problem is that unless you or best friend is a designer, it can be hard to find free wedding printables that you’d actually want to send out! Well here is the cure - these truly pretty and stylish save the date cards by Ellinee! So sweet and soft, these would make anyone look forward to your nuptials!
DIY & Downloadable Cards
Some of these I’ve featured before, some new - but either way they’re all awesome and easy as! Enjoy!
1. Mini Bunting Birthday Card - How About Orange
Nothing is sweeter than mini bunting, and this card can be made with your pretty scrap paper you can’t throw away (er, or is that just me?!) And bonus - this would suit ages 5 to er… 100.
2. Simple Notecard with Buttons - How About Orange
Another cute card from How About Orange, this time a combination of download (the base card with the stems) and DIY (the button flowers)
3. Beautiful DIY Kiragami Card - Curbly
When I was younger, I loved pop up cards. This is like the grown up version - who wouldn’t want to receive something as beautiful as this?!
4. Winning Words - Good Housekeeping
This is such a cool card, and so easy to customise for any occasion. Simply spell out your message on the Scrabble board, take a photo and print it off. You could say anything from ‘Happy Birthday’ or ‘Congratulations on beating me at Scrabble’. I think you’d need a few more tiles for that though.
5. Hello Card - Mmmcrafts
For those times when email won’t do, here’s a super cool card to send. I miss paper letters. Sigh.
6. Feather Business Card - Creature Comforts
I know this is meant to be for business cards, but wouldn’t this feather look gorgeous on a birthday card? Or any card for a fact!
7. Mini Greeting Card - Eat Drink Chic
Looking for a bit of French adorableness to give? Look no further! Eat Drink Chic is a fantastic illustrator, and this one comes with a free envelope too. Bonus!
Well I hoped you enjoyed this Card round up. I choose my very favourites, including ones I’ve either done myself or am hoping to do. The mini bunting card was a big winner!
iDad Card | Charlotte’s Fancy
This is the cutest card ever! I’m definietly making this for my dad. He got his iPad a couple of weeks ago and after a few goes on it, I think I’m back to wanting one - even though you can’t Tumbl on it! Boo. Anyway, as I’ve said before, I much prefer making cards than buying them, but it can be hard to think of ideas that aren’t already done (and ideas for guys - ladies, a sinch!) And this card could really be made for anyone - just change up the word on the front (iBirthday?! iNvitation?!)
Mother’s Day Card | Make Merry Events
It’s Mother’s Day tomorrow - did you forget?! Don’t stress! Download this truly pretty and sweet card, pop some card in your printer and your Mum will never know!
Cross Stitch Gift Card | Stitch Vicious
My best friend Brandi bought me a couple of awesome tshirts and i wanted to get her a funny card but i couldnt find any so i made her this.
This is such a good idea, why didn’t I think to sew cross stitches instead of giving cards?! I hate spending money on gift cards, I’m like - I’ve spent six dollars on a card for you and I know that you’re going to look at it, say thank you, then throw it in the bin! Sewing a birthday cake or lyrics from a song is so much more personal and I don’t know about anyone else but when I get something made for me I appreciate it so much more!
