Full Answer

  1. Choose the pictures you want to print

    Choose the pictures you want to use for the card. These can include pictures of the birthday girl with a cake, blowing bubbles or playing.

  2. Print out the pictures

    Print out the pictures in a standard size that fits into a card envelope.

  3. Cut out a piece of card stock

    Cut out a piece of colored card stock on which to frame the photos. If you choose an accordion-style card with three or more photos, lay the photos out on the piece of card stock, making sure to leave a narrow frame of paper around them in order to get the right size.

  4. Fold the piece of card stock

    For the traditional birthday card, fold the piece of card stock in half. For an accordion-style card, fold the piece of card stock in equal thirds.

  5. Attach the photos

    Glue the photos onto the card stock.

  6. Add the glue

    Add a dot of glue to the details of the picture that you want to highlight. For instance, highlight bubbles, candles or a toy. Do not overdo it.

  7. Add the glitter.

    Once the glue is in place, add colored glitter. Wait for the glue to dry.
