Happy birthday to my dog - DIY pet birthday card ideas

What could be better than having your best pal help you celebrate your birthday? We’ve combined everyone’s two favorite things in our fun party pets papers. With dogs wearing hats, a tortoise delivering presents, and a bunny holding a balloon, among other quirky characters, we think you’ll enjoy using these papers to make cards for all your animal-loving friends.

Step 1

Mount a 15 x 11cm piece of pet paper onto some silver card. Stick to a 15.5 x 11.5cm base card. Mount a 12.5 x 8.5cm piece of balloon paper onto some silver card (leaving a narrow border), then stick this to the base using sticky foam pads.

Step 2

Cut out the ‘It’s party time!’ banner and position it near the bottom of the balloon panel and stick it in place. Attach the pink doodle doily just above the sentiment. Use foam pads to stick your toppers in place to create dimension to your DIY pet birthday card.
