The words on a birthday card can last a lifetime, even longer than a pricey gift. With the right wording, you can brighten up someone's birthday. You may customise your wording to reflect someone's personality, age, your relationship or a combination of all three. If you're sending the card a little late, simply customise your wording accordingly. To give the wording a more personal touch, you may write it in or add it to a handmade greeting card.
