Giving homemade birthday cards can seem like something of an extravagance today in the age of digital birthday cards, which is part of the reason why they make particularly good gifts or supplemental gifts today. Many people are not expecting to receive adorable and solid birthday cards nowadays, even though as recently as a decade age they were completely standard for anyone who was trying to give someone else a complete gift package. Today, the person who gives a birthday card really is going above and beyond in a way. A person who gives a birthday card that is homemade is going an additional step beyond in an effort to be a loving and affectionate person to a friend or family member, which is all the more reason to learn how to make homemade birthday cards and homemade cards in general.
I know that I’ve always gotten a very positive response from each and every homemade card I’ve given anyone on any occasion, but especially these days. Most people will just purchase cards from the store if they actually plan on giving you physical cards. I’m not necessarily knocking physical cards that are store-bought, which can certainly still be loving. I do generally agree with the sentiment that it’s the thought that counts, and the important thing is that the person in question actually remembered the special day in question, which also seems to be difficult in an age where everyone has a hundred computer passwords to memorize. However, I can tell you that being able to create homemade cards is the kind of skill that will be rewarded over and over again, and even some of your toughest friends and family members will prove that they’re not made of stone when you present them with homemade cards.
If you’re a person who can draw or paint, you’re definitely in luck when it comes to homemade birthday cards. You can use your fabulous painting or drawing skills to create a lovely and delicate cover for the card. I really like drawing and painting, and I love decorating the fronts of cards with floral designs, which tend to work for a wide range of different occasions. Of course, homemade birthday cards can still be really funny, and if you can draw or paint, you can more or less make all of your cards into funny cartoons if you like. It really all depends upon the preferences of the recipients when it comes to their homemade cards, so it’s best to plan ahead and decide what to create on a case-by-case basis.
You might be worried that making homemade birthday cards is just going to be too difficult or too time-consuming. A lot of people have the talent to create some really pretty ones, but they don’t because they’re worried about spending too much time on the task. I can tell you that, on average, it takes me around thirty to forty-five minutes to make a homemade card, and that I’ve made them in less than ten minutes before. I’ll admit that I’ve forgotten about occasions before until the last minute, and I did almost end up going the store-bought route after all.
One of the great things about homemade cards is that people always assume that you planned ahead and you didn’t do anything at the last minute. I guess they also figure that homemade cards will always take you a long time to complete, especially if you physically drew them for yourself. So even if you really did create the card on the ride to that person’s house for the party, or even in the bathroom at the party, you can still end up convincing people that you managed to remember weeks in advance.
