Magical Birthday


This Harry Potter inspired birthday card was so fun to make! I used bright colors and these adorable images from Trinity Stamps to create this fun, interactive card.

To start, I stamped out the images from the stamp set, Happee Birthdae, with Gina K. black ink onto a piece of 80 lb. Neenah card stock.

I then went on to color the images using Copic markers and added a few white gel pen highlights. The rest of the images were accumulated during the last Daily Marker 30 day coloring challenge, so I was raring to go.

I used Lawn Fawn's scalloped box die to cut out the main components of the box card from some blue-green card stock. Before assembling, I set it aside to work on the ink blended background pieces.

Using a piece of Canson watercolor paper and a blending brush, I blended together picked raspberry, seedless preserves, and wilted violet distress oxide inks.

I trimmed down the blended background to fit the flaps on the box card, including the outside. Then I used the stitched rectangles from the die set to cut out the rest of the panel pieces from a sheet of purple card stock.

For the sentiment, I used the stamp set Magical Sentiments, and pieced together "Wishing you a Magical birthday." With Versamark ink, I added it to the larger stitched rectangle piece and heat embossed it with white detail embossing powder.

I did the same thing to the other two purple pieces using small images from the stamp sets Wizard Friends and Magical Wizards.

Once all the pieces were complete I began to assemble the box. I used Lawn Fawn 1/4" double-sided tape on all the tabs and burnished it down with my bone folder. I first adhered the two main pieces and then added one side of each of the inserts.

I removed the release paper from the other side of the inserts and closed the box over top of that to attach the other sides.

From there, I started adhering the ink blended background to the inside, as well as the heat embossed panels. After that, I added the characters to the inserts and popped out the owl by attaching the image to a strip of acetate.

On to outside I added more of the ink blended pieces and decorated those with the rest of my colored images.

I also included a piece of white card stock on the back of the box card to create space for a message.

I just love how this card turned out! ✨😄

Thanks so much for stopping by,
