Why make a unique birthday greeting card that looks like a purse?
In truth, using a theme or fashion symbol that the celebrant loves is one of the coolest ways to make a birthday greeting card.
However, take it to the next level by adding a unique feature to the card. In this case, a leather-textured purse card for that diva you know is an awesome way to go. By the way, this kind of material is available in craft stores.
If a purse won’t do the trick, think of another fashion symbol like a unique belt birthday card.
Another point of making a cool card like this is that you can use the concept to create the greeting card message.
Here are a few examples:
12” x 12” lime green leather like material or paper available in craft stores
12” x 12” lime green cardstock paper
1” x 2” metallic silver cardstock paper
Thick black dimensional (3D) lettering stickers
Craft cutting knife
Glue the green leather material onto the green cardstock paper. This rigid card stock firms up the leather material.
From this, cut out a 8” x 12” piece.
Using the 8” diameter curves, draw and cut out all four corners.
Score and fold this piece into a 4” x 8” pamphlet fold card format.
On the metallic cardstock, draw and cut out a trapezoidal buckle with 1.5” top, 2” botthom, and ⅛” radius corners.
Glue this piece on the bottom of the card cover.
Finally, using the 3D letters, create “Happy Birthday Diva” on the card.
With that, the card is done. Nevertheless, here are a few more things to consider:
