Hi everyone !
Today,( September 30th) is a special day because it’s my mum’s birthday ! So Mum if you are reading this Happy Birthday !!
Now I don’t know about you but I love personalizing and making my own cards instead of just getting a store bought one that won’t have as much value as a card that you have made by yourself. In my opinion people will appreciate it a lot more !
Now I know that sometimes when you try to DIY your own ‘Pinterest ‘ worthy card it doesn’t always come out quite the way you expect it to but ‘No need to fear for The Stylish Dreamer is here ! ‘
That is why today I will be sharing with you Three DIY Card Ideas and the best part ? You can make them for any occasion ! And I will also be sharing some of my favourite tips for Card making !
Let’s get started !
- Do your research
Try to think of all the things person you will be giving the card to likes whether it is their favourite book or even colour or pattern ! And then you can make your card perfectly tailored to that particular person !
Card Idea #1
Balloons and confetti card !
This card is the perfect mixture of balloons and confetti ! And it’s so easy to make !
Check out the amazing idea by Nicole Heady
All you need is cardstock, hole punchers, coloured/patterned paper,glue,pretty string and your creativity!
- Go crazy with colours
Try to make your card as happy and cheerful looking as possible and as wild and crazy as you are ! Have fun with it because after all the sky is the limit to your imagination ! This way whenever the person you are giving the card to feels sad they can look at your card and at least smile when they remember you.
Card Idea #2
This card is simple yet very element and very customizable ! I love this idea by Sara Rayner because you can be really creative with it but still manage to look super elegant.
Also it probably the easiest card ever ! All you will need is ribbon, patterned/coloured paper card stock and glue !
- Add in some puns
Don’t be afraid to make your card as ‘punny’ as you would like ! Add in some quotes and lots of well known and loved puns or you could even make your card themed !
Card Idea #3
This amazingly awesome card is probably all you will want to express to a chocoholic or just any person who really understands the depth of your love for chocolate !

This card looks a little bit more complicated but you just need 2 colours of card stock ( one of them brown ! ), foil, patterned paper and glue !
