6 Year Old Harry Potter Card

Running late again I know, but I made this card this afternoon for my entry in this week's Willow Sketchie Challenge. It is also for my Harry Potter obsessed nephew's 6th Birthday. Hope you all like it. :D

6 Year Old Harry Potter Card

I used white card for my base card, which I covered with a piece of black card for extra strength. I then cut a rectangle out of red flecked metallic paper and matted it to gold paper.

I printed out 3 Harry Potter emblems from Google Images onto white card, trimmed around them and glued them to the top left corner of my card.

I then found a Harry Potter colouring page also using Google Images, I coloured it in using Photoshop, printed it on white card, trimmed around it and attached it to the red and gold rectangle. Next I attached the rectangle to my card using double sided tape. As I still haven't got my die cutter yet, I made the "6" sentiment by hand. First I made a circle template out of a scrap piece of white card, I then traced it onto gold paper and cut it out. I then drew a 6 onto the white card circle template and cut it out, next I traced it onto red flecked metallic paper and cut it out. I then glued the 6 to the middle of the circle and glued it to the bottom right corner of my card. Lastly I used glitter glue to create magic bolts coming out of the wand.

This was a fun card to make and I can't wait to give it to my nephew. I would like to thank Shell from Willow Sketchie Challenge for a fantastic sketch. Good luck to all that enter. :D

  6. Thanks Shell :-* Lol... I'm glad my nephew isn't the only one then... He runs around with his Harry Potter glasses on, wand in hand yelling out spells as he goes... Have to admit it's very cute ;)

    Thanks Lisa :-* I was trying to keep it very magical looking... So I'm glad you also think that I have achieved that :D

    Thanks Pauline :-* I know... I didn't either, has been a very busy week again, but I forced myself to sit down and make it yesterday afternoon/ last night... Seems lately that Wednesdays are the only day I can find the time to do it :(

    Thanks Hazel :-* Glad another Harry Potter fan likes it :D
