What Can I Write in a Birthday Card?

Updated on February 16, 2012

Ideas of What to Write in Birthday Card

Birthday messages from others mean so much when it is our birthday. Likewise, others will thoroughly enjoy a card or note from you as well! Whether you are creating your own card, or have a nice blank card you found at the store, or just want to add more to the card you have, I hope you find something here that will work for you. The things you see here may jump start your own creativity, as you can adapt what yo see here, or use it "as is."

More and more people are creating handmade greeting cards of all types. With a little thoughtfulness, you can add a message that could rival any greeting card you could spend a lot of money on. I will never stop going to Hallmark and such stores, as I love them too much, but for those occasions when you need that special saying, ideas like these may be just what you need. As needed, I often change the word "I", for "we" when appropriate, and vice versa. You can do the same to make the greeting be more appropriate for what you need.

      Thank you for your comment and kind words. I am doing better about having cards or card making supplies on hand to give for birthday cards. Still, I have to actually send them!
