This simple and elegant birthday card features the word "happy" written in calligraphy, with "birthday" in block letters atop eight birthday candles below. What a sweet way to send your good wishes to a friend or loved one!

The gorgeous stock used here looks dark brown and has a lovely metallic shimmer--see third photo to get a better idea of how it looks when light hits it. A recycled brown kraft envelope perfectly complements the card's dark chocolate color. A metallic or white ink gel pen would be the perfect choice for writing your message inside, or I can line the card with white paper to allow use of a darker ink--just ask when you check out.

This listing is for a single card and envelope. If you need a different quantity, click "contact shop owner" below and let me know. I'll be happy to set up a custom listing for you.
