Harry Potter Birthday Card


Hiya Everyone,

I just wanted to share with you all a quick card I made for my mum as it's her birthday today - I only made it last night as I've been so busy. She loves Harry Potter so when I won some digis a few weeks back I made sure I got this as I knew she'd love it. As I'm using my hubbies laptop as mine is on a go slow/stop, I didn't have access to all my usual digi papers etc so I found this star paper which was a freebie (here) when I did a search. I used my inverted corner punch on the edges of the image and the base layer of the card which I am loving right now.

The image is called Har Repotter the chosen one and is by bugaboo stamps which is available from here. I love their stuff so don't forget to check out their other fab digis! I coloured him in roughly with my promarkers for a change as I'd not used them for ages. I also used my star embossing folder and a star punch that I edged in black stickles. The sentiment I did on the computer with a freebie font called Hogwarts wizard which is available from here. I added a little glossy accents to the lenses of his glasses and the eyes of the owl.
