Crafting Tip: When brainstorming birthday card ideas using the collage technique with different media you may run into the problem of "filling out" the entire collage.

Or use a repetitive signature piece of art of fill in the blanks, such as stars, colored buttons, hearts, happy faces, and other embellishments.
