Cards are the best way to show your feelings and emotions. When we give somebody hand made cards that increases the grace and elegance of the card. It accentuates our feelings. We even enjoy and put in our love in making a card. Our efforts and creativity both are fused together and that moves the receiver’s heart. It can bring about great changes. It gives rise to positivity and love among the people. Cards can be occasion specific or feeling specific or we could be giving somebody a card just because we feel like giving one. Pop-up cards are filled with intricacies but are surely easy to make. The intricacies show that life is complicated as well. Pop-up cards have great effect on the receiver.

Handmade Birthday Card
Let us start with a cute birthday card. Take an A4 sized white drawing sheet. Now fold the sheet in half lengthwise. Taking a yellow sheet cut a few circles from it of the same size. Now make emojis out of these yellow circles. We are going to make the card fun, and what can be funnier than some laughable emojis. You may go on with using different coloured sheets and stickers, or draw with a marker. Now paste these emojis on a colourful thread. You can make a thread by rolling colourful threads or may buy one. Paste the threaded emojis on the card, secure the thread as if all the emojis are balloons and they stem from a common base. Make a strip out of black and white paper and stick it over the threads using double tape. Write “Happy Birthday” on the strip with a black marker and fine hand writing. Now use yellow quilling strip to line the edges of the front of the card. Cut balloons from different coloured sheets and thread them at the base. Once done paste the balloons side by side to each other. Tie the threads of the balloons together. Cut off excessive length of the thread. Now stick the ends of the balloon design to the card. Now we have a fun balloon popping card. Write fun captions or moments in the receiver’s life to mark the beautiful life. For better understanding look up:
