A Harry Potter Themed Birthday Card

 Today, I am sharing the birthday card I made for my great niece
who loves anything to do with Harry Potter.

I found the free backing paper and image to use online. I mat
and layered the image onto black card. I then cut half of the front of the card
base away and glued the HP paper onto it.
Lastly, I added the sentiment, numbers and some black diamond shapes.

The products I have used:
Spellbinders Nestabilities - Rectangles and Scalloped Rectangles
Paper Roses - Happy Birthday (small)
Craft Stash - Alphabet die

Birthday Card for my Nephew

 Today's card is one I made for my nephew earlier this month, using snippets of 
paper and card from my ever growing stash!

I found the idea for this card on Pinterest.

I made the 7"x5" card base using a stone coloured A4 sheet of card.
Next I embossed a smaller piece of brown card with the textured
embossing folder and glued it to the card base.

Using 4 snippets of design papers which I glued to some lightweight card,
I die-cut them with a set of stitched banner dies.

Next, I used a piece of the stone card and die-cut the sentiment banner
with one of the set of Creative Expressions (Sue Wilson) Pierced Flags
from the Frames and Tags set.

Lastly I added the Presscut Happy Birthday and some small circles
punched with an EK Success punch.
