Kids Birthday Cards

Kids birthday cards have got to be the most fun cards to make! Vibrant colors, fun characters and a generally happy, lively theme are always such a joy to work with! On this page, our DT Member Lisa will show you how to create a fun, colorful birthday card for that little special someone. :) If there’s anything that Lisa used that you don’t happen to have, feel free to substitute with whatever you have on hand. It will still come out just as gorgeous! :)

  5. Color the image with the Copic markers. Like I said earlier, kids birthday cards are fun so work with bright colors. I added the Copic Marker C1 to the areas of the stamped image that were not colored with another color.
