Hi bloggers! Happy Sunday to you!! I’m pleased to bring you an adorable Birthday card & matching envelope made primarily with Doodlebug products by Wendy Sue Anderson!

She was sweet enough to also provide a short tutorial so you can create your own personalized card, too!

I love personalizing cards for my kids and my nieces and nephews.  While creating individual and unique cards could be very time-consuming, using pre-made card bases and coordinating embellishments makes this process not only fun, but quick and easy too!  I’d love to share one of my recent cards with you! Here’s how I created this card.

  1.  I used a card base from Doodlebug’s Create-A-Card collection as the base for my card. 

  2. Next, I lined the inside of the card with patterned paper from the 6×6 fruit stand pad.

  3.  In order to have some “clean” writing space, I trimmed down a card from the fruit stand simply put 4×6 album inserts pad – rounding all four of the corners with a punch.

  4.  To add the number flag, I simply punched out a single piece from the fruit stand mini banner set, tied twine through the holes, and placed a number sticker on the flag.  I used a foam adhesive dot to place the flag in the center of the pre-made circle opening on the card.

  5.  To embellish the front of the card, I ripped three strips of gingham washi tape and placed them along the edge of the card.  I added some machine stitching with red thread as well.  Finally, I added a small bird doodle-pop sticker and a “note” from the mini love notes collection directly over the washi tape.


And how much more fun is a cute card when it arrives in a cute envelope?!?  To create this cute envelope, simply add three strips of washi tape to the center of the envelope front (the envelope also comes in the Create-A-Card pack) and add letter stickers to spell out the recipient’s name.
Quick and easy and sure to make someone feel extra loved on their special day!


Thanks so much to Wendy Sue for guesting today!

  1. This is such a pretty card! I love red & aqua together! And the little cherries and birdie are so cute (ALL of Doodlebug’s designs are CUTE!) and the magic Eight ball design is very unique and clever!

  2. This is so sweet! I love your idea of showing the number in the opening but it is just beyond neat with the little bird on the front too! Great job. Thanks for sharing.
