Hello there! It's time for another birthday card tutorial :) I really hope you like it and if you try and make this specific design or something inspired by it then be sure to send me a picture on Instagram.

Question: When is your birthday? 
I turn 16 in two days time... I'm not quite sure how I feel about that. 

Also if you aren't already be sure to follow me on Bloglovin' because the site has an interesting name that for some strange reason I find hard to pronounce.

Till next time,
Erin xoxo.

To make this card you will need:
  • 2 different sheets of patterned paper
  • 1 sheet of white card stock
  • watercolour paint/palette thing
  • scissors
  • glue
  • 1 Black pen
  • ribbon
1. Fold a piece of patterned paper in half.

2. Cut a circle out of white paper or card stock (I used card stock) and watercolourify it! I understand that watercolourify is not a real word but it is now. I have added it to my dictionary and there is nothing you can do about it.

3. Cut a strip of paper around 5cm wide to fit the length length of your card and glue it in place.

4. Glue the circle onto the card (Personally I think it looks best if you leave a bit overhanging) and write Happy Birthday on the front or whatever other message you want your card to send e.g. Get well soon.

5. If you think the inside looks a bit boring grab some ribbon and glue it on. If you have duct tape, washi tape, glitter tape or even glitter glue that would work too. If you don't have any of those then just cut some thin strips of paper to create the same effect. 

Something else you can do to make the card look a bit more interesting is draw something in the circle.  If you look at the photo below you will see that I drew circles outlining the shape, you can draw any pattern your heart desires. I think it would look really cool if you did a mandala design over the top.
