Question: What type of birthday card do you make for someone that has a birthday near Christmas?

Answer: What a great question. My answer is anything non-Christmas related.

Thinking of You Birthday Card

I, as I am sure many of you too, have friends and/or family that have a birthday in not only in December but near Christmas. I go total opposite of Christmas when creating birthday cards for the ones that I know that fall into this category. Today, I am sharing a card that I recently created for one of these December babies. First, I pick a fun stamp set that I love working with. Second, I stay away from all the traditional reds, greens, and blues.

I make sure the recipient knows that it is not a Christmas card when they receive it. As with this sample, I added the same type of shell on the bottom left corner of the envelope. Sometime I stamp the image(s) on the back flap of the envelope. If the occasion calls for it, I may do both the front and the back of the envelope. I don’t think anyone would mistake this envelope with the shell on front for a Christmas card, do you?

I almost always take an element that I use on the front of the card and use it also on the inside of the card. Have fun on the inside of your cards too.
