Ready to make a wish? Did you wish that you could get a free greeting card to match your birthday gift card? Well, that wish is granted here today.

At, many of the artist designed gift cards come with matching greeting cards that can be added to your gift card purchase for $1.50. I love this option when I want to send a gift card directly to the recipient in something fancier than the standard carrier. When I want to hand deliver the gift card, however, I send the gift card to my house and skip the matching greeting card in favor of something I’ll put together on my own.

This “Make a Wish” birthday gift card gives you both options. There is a matching greeting card that can be ordered online plus a free downloadable version of the same greeting card that can be printed at home for free. I’ll show you the difference between the two options below.

Here’s the link to order the “Make a Wish” birthday gift card.

Option 1: Order Matching “Make a Wish” Greeting Card

If you order the matching greeting card at, the “Make a Wish” gift card will be affixed to the inside of the card. This is a full color greeting card on heavy cardstock. Below is a picture of the card.
