6 Silly Birthday Card Designs

Today is my birthday (thank you, thank you). So in honor of my slow decay I've found six ridiculous birthday cards that are humorous, handmade and unexpected. I hope my friends and family are taking notes for next year.

1. Graphic Designer's Rant Card

I found the copywriter's birthday card on noisydecentgraphics.typepad.com. Designed by Ben Terrett, it's a hilarious take on the relationship between copy and design, all within the narrative of a birthday card.

2. Chinese Star Sign Birthday Cards

These cards are designed by U.K.-based designer Jack Hooker. They are kitschy, funky and incorporate the Chinese star signs. I was born in the Year of the Dog, so this image caught my eye!

3. The Lackadaisical Greeting

A perfect card to get for people who claim to "hate their birthdays." Available on akimbodesign's shop on etsy.com.

4. Throwback Decoder Card

This decoder card will make anyone feel like a kid again. It comes with a personalized or custom message in numbers for the recipient to decode. Available at crankbunny's store on etsy.com

5. Pun Intended

Who doesn't love a good pun? This card is just plain silly and the linocut design makes it feel really funky and homegrown. Available through starmagnolialino's etsy.com store.

6. Tiny cards

Leaf Cutter Designs will create and send a custom Lilliputian birthday card on your behalf. The recipient will need a magnifying glass to read the impressively tiny design.

7. Pithy e-cards

For the best creative in electronic cards, I choose Someecards.com, which has old-timey illustrations and hilarious text. You can also build your own cards from scratch. This card in particular spoke to me.

Happy birthday, Britt!

My husband and I create our own Someecards all the time and send them back and forth to each other about every little stupid thing.
