Say Something Wise: Birthday Card

August 1, 2013

We turn not older with years, but newer every day.
~ Emily Dickinson

Have a friend who’s agonizing over turning another year older? This Emily Dickinson quote is perfect for reminding the birthday girl she’s only getting better with every year.

I have a few sets of these adorable Jenni Bowlin bingo cards and they are perfect for greeting cards. I used the “wish” card from the birthday set and created a little contrast by mounting it on a red background. Using any color that matches one of the numbers would have been just as nice.

I chose a blue polka dot pebble brad from making memories to cover the center “free” square and wrote “make a” using a red sharpie to be sure it showed up on the blue polka dot background. I wanted to use this cute envelope from my stash so I cut the flat card square to easily fit inside, and then tied it all up using red bakers twine. Add a gift card, lottery tickets, or some cold hard cash and you’re all set to celebrate your friend’s birthday.
