Does someone special in your life have a birthday soon? Make their birthday card more than just another card by using a free “Happy Birthday” printable coloring card! A hand-colored creation won’t easily be forgotten. Choose from 2 free happy birthday printable cards to color and 1 frugal option.
With any holiday, including birthdays, cards are usually tossed aside and quickly forgotten. From the stock photos or illustrations on the outside to the pre-written usually cliché message or goofy joke on the inside … they just don’t make a lasting impression. They don’t have meaning.
But you can change that by opting for happy birthday printable cards to color!
A printable happy birthday coloring card is pretty much exactly what it sounds like—it’s a card you print out at home and then color yourself. (I also encourage you to write something on the inside to make the card even more meaningful!) Color the happy birthday card printable yourself or enlist your kid to lend a helping hand.
Happy Birthday Printable Coloring Card: Birthday Party
The first of the happy birthday printable cards to color is a fun option for anyone, whether they’re turning 1 or 100! I love how the “Happy Birthday” pops out of the gift, Jack-in-the-box style—it adds a touch of whimsy that is sure to brighten the recipient’s day!
Most of the details on this free printable “Happy Birthday” card are pretty large, meaning even young children should be able to handle this coloring project. And they can use the inside to practice their penmanship by writing a short note or even just their name.
Tip: Have your kid’s practice their ABCs in advance by coloring and tracing uppercase and lowercase bubble letters. They can also specifically practice writing “Happy Birthday” by tracing these “Happy Birthday” bubble letters.

Happy Birthday Printable Coloring Card: Minimalist
This printable happy birthday coloring card is for the minimalist in your life. You know, the person who never saves anything? Well, let’s see them throw out this foldable happy birthday card printable after you and your kid hand decorate it!
There’s no denying it—this happy birthday card printable is simple, but don’t confuse simple with boring. The lack of extra accessories, so to speak, means you (or your kid) can really focus on decorating the letters themselves and the splashes behind them. Plus, this means whatever you write inside the printable happy birthday coloring card will really stand out!
Bonus: One way to keep a birthday bash on budget is to opt for a frugal theme. One of my favorites is a rainbow party. Color the letters on this free printable happy birthday card in a rainbow pattern and it’ll fit right in to the theme!
Happy Birthday Printable Coloring Card: Birthday Cake
While the first two options are free printable happy birthday cards, this colorable card does cost $1. However, and hopefully you’ll agree, I think it’s a savvy investment. You (or your kid) will have a blast decorating this cake, which by the way will dirty zero dishes, and it’s sure to bring a smile to the recipient’s face!
This foldable happy birthday card printable, featuring a sweet treat, looks almost good enough to eat. However, I wouldn’t recommend that. Instead, savor the card and whip up one of these 64 box cake mix recipes or this colorful cake in a jar recipe, which by the way, would fit in well with the rainbow party theme mentioned above!
