Once you start making birthday cards for the folks in your life, there seems to be a contractual obligation to never purchase a card again. It doesn’t matter if you’re running terribly behind, out of time or just plain uninspired. If you purchase someone a card after making one for everyone else, it is assumed that you care about them less.
March has been a birthday month, so I’ve made some birthday cards. Two of them were men, which is much more tricksy, as they generally don’t prefer cute animals and flowers. Luckily, both guys are into pirates.
I haven’t forgotten Harold, my other March birthday, but his card is part of a tutorial for another post. (Multi-tasking at it’s best!) In case you’ve got birthdays coming up, here are some sentiments to help you out with your cards. Click on the image to make it bigger before saving it.
