sooo if you have been following my blog you may have noticed that I have quite a few Harry Potter cards, apparently I know a lot of people who enjoy Harry Potter LOL, I do try very hard to make my cards different or to try different techniques to make each one special. My niece is a huge Harry Potter fan so I really wanted to make a special card just for her so I decided to make a bridge card.
to see a video of this card in motion, please check out my Facebook page https://www.facebook.com/groups/MyMessyCraftroom/
The cardstock used for this card is from Stampin’Up , and the colours are listed below. The patterned paper is from my scrap bin. The cute character stamp is from Kindred Stamps. All the castle pieces are from Karen Burnistons Castle Pop-up die set (this set is traditionally a pop-up die set, but I am using it a bit differently 😀)
The idea of creating a bridge card came from watching a Jennifer Mcguire video, I also created a Sandcastle Bridge card a few months ago after watching this particular VIDEO (my sizes are a bit different as I wanted the whole castle to fit across the card.)
Starting with the cardbase…
To save time I decided to use a patterned paper to cut the brick pieces from, By doing this I was able to have the look of texture without having to sponge the pieces or run it back through my Big shot to emboss.
Now for the card that attaches to the back
I used some old Stampin Up Alcohol markers to colour in my Hagrid.
The dragon is a die from the Knight and Dragon die set from Karen Burniston. The word bubble is an old Stampin Up die.
all the gems are from my stash, I believe they were purchased from Walmart,
