Easy Geometry Birthday Card to Make

I made this Geometry Birthday Card for all the geeks like me out there.  The summer depleted my supply of Birthday cards so I have to make more.  This time of year I have lots of birthdays in my family including mine and we have a lot of geeks.  If you don’t like this card, try my other birthday cards.

This card is an odd size because of the line up of the squares.  After you make the card, measure it and make a custom envelope using the videos I have on how to make a custom envelope.

You will need:
Paper Selection

I did this geometry birthday card in blue but you can make it in any color you want.  The base card needs to be heavy two sided paper (at least 110 lb. wt.).  Patterned, glitter or foil papers would work well with this card.  Just don’t use too many patterns and make sure the pen shows up on the paper you choose for the base card.

Cutting the Geometry Birthday card

Cut the card base and the Cricut will do the writing.  I used a blue gel pen.  Did you know that you can use any pen in your Cricut?  You can see the trick here.  

I used two fonts in this project geometric 231 std, which is an Access font and round geometric which you can get at Cufon fonts.

Assembling the Geometry Birthday Card

This card is easy to make.  First re-crease the fold on the base card.  

Start by closing the card.  Take the two biggest squares and try to weave them together.  Then glue them to the front.  Next, work with the next smaller squares and center them inside the first two squares.  Continue until all the squares are glued down.

If you need to make an envelope, measure your card and follow the directions on my video series “Making custom envelopes”

And your geometry birthday card is done.  The geek in your life will love it!
