Go-To Greetings Birthday Card Sample

In between the holiday preparations, people are still celebrating birthdays. I like to have birthday cards on hand so I can easily put them in the mail. This birthday card offers a versatile layout that can be created with a variety of patterned papers and stamp sets. I used Stampin’ Up!’s Go-To Greetings stamp set and Design a Daydream Designer Series Paper to complete this project. Find both of these in Stampin’ Up!’s 2022-2023 Annual Catalog.


Please enjoy the free card-making tutorial below. Click here to see a handmade Christmas card and how-to video using the same layout.
