DIY Birthday Card for Husband

This makes an awesome DIY birthday card for a husband - also a great anniversary card - and I actually designed and made it for my own husband as a Valentine's card and he really loved it...

So it's perfect for any occasions where you want to show your love to your husband and let him know that you think he's amazing!

The card is easy to make - especially if you have a Cricut or similar cutting machine. If not, you can always cut it by hand using the PNG file as a template.

If you're using a cutting machine, the husband card template is a cut and score project - this means that there are lines for the cutting machine to score, as well as the lines to cut. Most cutting machines will have a scoring tool that you can use in the machine - but if you don't have one, you can delete the score lines and score by hand...

I discuss choosing a scoring tool for your Cricut, scoring by hand, and show you step-by-step how to set up the file so that everything scores correctly in Cricut Design Space on this page - please do read it, even if you have another type of cutting machine, as I think it will still help you know the steps you need to take in your own machine to get the right results...

Once you've got everything cut, scored and ready, I have a full craft tutorial for you to follow, showing you how to fold and assemble the card and envelope - you can follow that here...

  • When used as-is in Cricut Design Space, the SVG makes a finished card that's around 12 x 12 cm (approximately 4.75 4.75 inches) and an envelope that's just a little bit bigger.
  • The husband card template cuts flat on the standard Cricut mat (not the specialist card mat).
  • The card and envelope together use 3 A4 or Letter-sized sheets of cardstock.

I'll share with you the two cards I made for this project - and talk a bit about the colour ideas below...

For both cards, I used:

  • Sizzix 'Surfacez' textured cardstock for the outer card (orange and blue - both from the 'muted colours' pack)
  • Generic lightweight coloured crafting cardstock (160gsm) for the inner card and envelope
  • I used my Cricut Maker cutting machine
  • I used the 'Cardstock for Intricate Cuts' setting for the outer cards (in Cricut Design Space)
  • I used the 'Light Cardstock' setting for the inner cards and envelopes (in Cricut Design Space)

Colour Ideas for Your Handmade DIY Husband Card

The template for the 'Amazing Husband' card is in the orange and black/dark purple colour scheme below...

I paired this really nice pumpkin orange outer card with a rich purple inner card (you could use black if you don't have this lovely deep purple) and a bright green envelope - I think this is quite an unusual colour combination but I think it looks quite contemporary but still masculine.

You could also tone it down with a more neutral envelope, if you liked.

For my second colour idea, I went with a classic blue - see below...

I kept it simple with two tones of blue - look for a contrast between light and dark when choosing colours for the inner and outer card so that the design stands out well. 

This is a nice classic style - and also a bit of a calmer look than the orange card above - so that might suit your husband better.

You can include a bold green envelope, like I decided to, to add a bit of colour and liven it up, or you could easily select a pale blue, white, or another neutral tone for the envelope, if you preferred.

When I made this as a Valentines Day card for my husband, I made it in red for the outer card, with a white inner card, and a lighter-toned red envelope - I feel like there are certain colours that are expected for Valentine's Day and suit the feel better, and red or pink do convey that idea of love and passion that's the message of Valentine's Day.

You can get creative with the husband card template and include your own husband's favourite colours, or colours that have a personal meaning for you both - a handmade card is extra special and is the perfect opportunity to be able to do do things like this!
