The Burrow Happy Birthday Card by Katelyn

Hey Wild Whisper Fans, Katelyn here! I'm thrilled to be back on the blog today sharing with you my Harry Potter themed, The Burrow Happy Birthday Card which features the Fandom Collection. To create my card, I've used the Flair, Ephemera, the Card Pack and the Paper pack from the Fandom Collection. Grab a cup of your favourite spring time beverage and learn how to recreate my card at home.
To start, you'll need the paper patterned paper out of the Fandom Paper Pack. Cut the piece of paper down to 4" x 5 1/4". Ink the edges of the paper using Black Soot Distress Oxide Ink and a blending tool with foam.
Cut the castle paper down to 3 3/4" x 5". Ink the edges of the paper using Black Soot Distress Oxide Ink and a blending tool with foam.
From the book paper, you'll need to cut two pieces. The first piece measures 3 3/8" x 4 3/4". The second piece measures 3 1/4" x 4 1/2". Ink the edges of both pieces using Black Soot Distress Oxide Ink and a blending tool with foam.
From the cut apart paper, cut out the "not today" square and fussy cut the "the burrow" sign out. Ink the edges of the square and sign using Black Soot Distress Oxide Ink and a blending tool with foam.
Choose two strips from the bottom of the papers. Cut one border strip down to 4" and cut the other border strip down to 3 3/4". Ink the edges of each border strip using Black Soot Distress Oxide Ink and a blending tool with foam.
From the Ephemera pack, you'll need three stars and fussy cut the house out. Ink the edges of the house and stars using Black Soot Distress Oxide Ink and a blending tool with foam.
From the Flair pack, choose one of the Flair buttons.
You'll need a scrap piece of white cardstock. Apply Jet Black Archival Ink to the Happy Birthday stamp and stamp onto the white cardstock piece. Reapply the Jet Black Archival Ink to the Happy Birthday stamp and stamp onto the same piece of white cardstock. Cut the Happy Birthday sentiment into strips. Ink the edges of the strips using Black Soot Distress Oxide Ink and a blending tool with foam.
From the Card Pack, you'll need the 4"x6" card that is grey with white writing. Cut the card down to 3" x 4". On the left hand side of the paper, tear a bit of the paper to the right. Ink the edges of the paper using Black Soot Distress Oxide Ink and a blending tool with foam.
Adhere the castle patterned paper to the paper patterned paper.
Adhere the grey with white writing patterned paper to the 3 1/4" star patterned paper. Adhere the 3 1/4" star patterned paper to the 3 3/8" book patterned paper, making sure the 3 1/4" star patterned paper sits right against the right hand side of the book patterned paper. Adhere the not today square 7/8" from the top of the book patterned paper. Foam square the book patterned paper to the right hand side of the paper patterned paper.
Adhere the 4" border strip 3/4" from the bottom of the paper patterned paper. Adhere the 3 3/4" border strip 1/2" from the bottom of the paper patterned paper. Foam square the house 1/4" from the right of the star patterned paper and 3/4" from the bottom of the paper patterned paper.
Foam square the "the Burrow" sign to the left of the house. Adhere the happy birthday strips underneath the "the Burrow" sign. Adhere the Flair button to the left of the Birthday strip. Adhere the stars around the top of the house on the grey/ white word patterned paper piece.
To finish your card, cut a cardbase out of white cardstock that measures 5 1/4" x 8", score at 4". Adhere the cardfront to the cardbase.
Here are a few closeup photos of the finished card.
