Brother and Brother-in-Law Birthday Card Templates

I made these papercut card templates for my own brother and brother-in-law's birthdays (they have birthdays in the same month) so I hope that you like them and can use them for your own family birthdays...

I wanted to make cards that are easy-to-make and that you can use for your brother and/or brother-in-law whatever their age and personality - so these are suitable for both youngsters (even your kid brother!) and also for more mature family members, too - just pick colours that suit your brother's or brother-in-law's style...

The photos on this page will give you some inspiration for colours - and I'll write a bit more about that later...

For now, though, there's some things I need to tell you about the cards...

  • The cards cut on the standard Cricut mat (not the new specialist card mat)
  • The envelope is included in the card template
  • You can make the cards from 3 sheets of A4 or Letter-sized cardstock
  • When you use the SVG file as-is in Cricut, it will make a finished card of approximately 12 x 12cm (around 4.75 x 4.75 inches) with an envelope that's a little larger
  • The cards are 'cut and score' cardmaking projects - this means that you will need a scoring tool/function on your cutting machine (or you can score manually) - I have instructions for setting up the card to score properly here - this also discusses scoring tools and how to score manually if you don't have a scoring tool.

My brother birthday card SVG template is a lovely teal, green and blue colour combination that I think is perfect for both classic and modern styles and looks great (see below)!

My brother-in-law birthday card SVG template is a cheerful orange-yellow with white inner and a pale blue envelope (see below) - this is lovely if you want to send a really happy, sunshiney feel with your birthday greetings...

I also created the brother birthday card in a very contemporary dark grey and chose a lime green inner card - keeping it bright with a bright yellow card, too - see it below...

This feels quite bold and youthful - any bright colours could be used here with the grey - and if you wanted to tone it down a bit, you could choose a darker or neutral colour (like white or grey) for the envelope.

You could also use a more neutral colour for the inner card alongside the grey (white or lighter grey) or a pale blue for a look that's a lot more classic or minimal and might suit the individual recipient better!

I did also make the brother-in-law card in the same teal, blue, and green colour palette, too, to see how the different design looked in this colour - and also because I liked it so much!

If you're choosing your own colours, go for some contrast between the inner and outer card - this means colours that stand out against each other, and more importantly, some contrast between light and dark - so a dark outer card would suit a white or pale inner card, and a pale outer card would suit a bright or dark inner card...

The envelope is your opportunity to play a bit with colour and add something fun and bright - or if you prefer, you can just keep it very similar to the card or a neutral white or cream.

All the cards on this page are created using:

  • Sizzix 'Surfacez' textured cardstock for the outer card
  • generic lightweight coloured/white craft cardstock (160gsm) for the inner card and envelope

I used 'intricate cardstock' setting in Cricut Design Space with my Cricut Maker to cut the outer cards - and 'lightweight cardstock' setting to cut the inner cards and envelopes.
