Even the glitter minimalist has cause to celebrate with these handmade birthday cards. Just a touch on family photos highlights charming elements like a birthday cake or just-blown bubbles.
Apply glue to the details using a fine-tipped bottle, and sprinkle with glitter in the color of your choice. The black-and-white images were sized to fit envelopes, printed on matte heavyweight photo paper using an ink-jet printer, and affixed to colored card stock. You can also add glitter to photos to frame and display.
