Easy Birthday Card No Fancy Tools Required

Easy Birthday Card No Fancy Tools Required

Hi LCI readers! Carol here from The Answer Is Chocolate sharing an easy birthday card idea with you. Even though I have them and love them, no die cutting machines or tools are needed for this. 



I can’t tell you the last time I bought a card since I’ve been making them for years. We are in the process of a move and a lot of my supplies are packed away.  So I thought “OK I’ll just buy one” . Have you seen the price of some cards lately? I was floored. $7.95 and higher for cards that have the kind of stuff I like to put on cards.  Not happening.  I knew even buying new supplies I could make one for a fraction of the cost. 

I headed to Michaels and bought 1 sheet of 12×12 glitter paper and a package of 3D Stickers. I had a coupon for 30% off my entire purchase  because the first rule of crafting is never enter Michaels without a coupon.  The second rule is:  coupons let you buy more craft supplies! 

For this project you will need: 

  • 1 sheet 12×12 glitter card stock
  • 1 package 3D stickers
  • 2 sheets plain white cardstock
  • Tape gun or double sided tape



I had some plain white card stock on hand that I used for the base of my card and to make a smaller panel and cut the glitter card stock as shown: 




Layer the smaller panel on top of the base . Choose a combination of stickers from the pack and arrange as desired. I used about half of the stickers for one card and have enough card stock and stickers for another card



My total cost for supplies with a coupon was $4.18 and getting two cards out of the supplies , cost per card is $2.09. Take that $7.95 and higher cards!
