  1. 1

    Design a folded, blank card base by using a paper trimmer, craft knife, or scissors to cut a 5-by-8-inch sheet of white cardstock. Fold the cardstock in half to create a card that is 5 inches tall by 4 inches wide.

  2. 2

    Cut a 4-by-3-inch piece of light blue cardstock using a paper trimmer, craft knife, or scissors. Use the same cutting tool to cut a 3-inch-square piece of green cardstock.

  3. 3

    Create the look of a patch of grass by tearing the piece of green cardstock in half to generate a ragged edge. Discard or recycle half of the cardstock and affix the other half across the bottom of the light blue cardstock with a glue stick.

  4. 4

    Affix a golf ball sticker or die cut to the blue cardstock so it appears to be resting on the green "grass" like a ball on the fairway.

  5. 5

    Place small number stickers in the centre of the golf ball that correspond with the birthday honoree's age. Attach the completed accent to the centre of the white card with a glue stick.

  6. 6

    Add a funny or thoughtful golf quote around the border of the card, 1/2 inch in from the edge using a marker or alphabet stamps and ink.

  7. 7

    Write a birthday sentiment on a 3-by-4-inch piece of green or light blue cardstock and attach the cardstock inside the card with a glue stick. In addition to fond birthday wishes, consider adding a personal touch by recounting a humorous golf-related anecdote.

Tips and warnings

  • If you plan to make additional birthday cards, save time by buying a pack of pre-made blank cards and coordinating envelopes instead of folding and cutting cardstock sheets to design the individual card bases.
  • Embellish the cardstock mat in the centre of the golf card with other golf-themed accents if you'd rather not use the ball and torn cardstock grass idea. Consider other embellishments like a golf club sticker, a photo of the birthday honoree playing golf, or a snippet cut from a golf scorecard or golf course brochure.
  • If you're cutting cardstock or decorative paper with a craft knife, keep the razor-sharp blade from damaging your work table by protecting it with a self-healing cutting mat. These mats, which are sold at scrapbooking, fabric, and craft stores, will also cushion the tip of the blade to help you make crisp cuts.
