Step 1:

Create your design! Using Tombow Dual Brush Pens, and a sheet of Hahnemühle Hand Lettering Paper, create your birthday message! I made one big banner for this birthday card, but feel free to include a personal message. If you want to use this spring inspired color palette, it was created with Dual Brush Pens in #243, #685, #277, #346, and #126.
