DIY Birthday Card – Sweet 17th

I’m a bit addicted to this card challenges I found. So, I decided to make my niece a DIY birthday card by following some challenges. It’s tough, but I managed to incorporate it all together into one card which is still regarding my niece’s 17th birthday.

Below are the challenges that I incorporated it with my concept:

1. Less is more. I love this blog, because I also believe in “less is more”, always keep it simple. I made flowers because 17 is where a girl is blooming. I gave a letter “A” because her initial is A. And it became the word “A sweet seventeen”

2. CC&S Challenge Blog. The colour restriction makes it harder. I use the glitter for the letter A because I’m giving her a silver bracelet as a gift. Besides, it’s a sweet seventeen!
3. Mix It Up Challenge Blog. I made the flowers pop up with foam tape.
Anything Goes + optional twist of Emboss Resist
4. Everybody Art Challenge. The challenge is Flower!
5. Get Creative Challenge. The challenge is Lots of Flowers!
It is a very simple DIY birthday card, I made everything by hands, so it’s totally handmade card. I hope my niece would love it, of course along with the gift to.
So glad I found all of those challenge sites, really inspires and motivates you to do more. Hope I can find more challenge sites, maybe for decor or something else to do with design.
Explore your creativity!
See you!

  1. I was going to go out and buy a mother’s day card for a special aunt of mine but you inspired me with making one myself. It is funnier making the card then buying it. I will have to pull out some things to see what I can come up with.
