Good morning! I am very excited to share another Harry Potter craft with you today – this time it is a wedding/engagement card! A few weeks ago one of our friends, T, of T&G, got engaged and I am so excited! He went to undergrad with both my husband and me and we have all remained good friends since graduating. His fiancee is wonderful and they both love Harry Potter – like seriously LOVE Harry Potter! Which is awesome! I had so much fun creating this engagement card for them.
Below is the tutorial and free printables. I created this card to celebrate their engagement, but it would also make a wonderful wedding card. You can find both versions under the Supplies Needed.
- Free Printables (download and save to your desktop before printing at 100%)
- White card stock – I used 110 lb bright white
- DMC Light Effects Floss in Gold
- Gold brocade fabric
- Gold mesh or tulle fabric
- Scoring board and embossing stylus (optional)
- Scissors, needle, pencil
Step One: Download the free printable card. There will be an inside card that is either for an engagement or wedding, and the cover card, which is the same for both. You can add the couple’s initials at the bottom using a program like Photoshop or hand write them. Print the card onto white card stock and cut both pieces out.
Step Two: Score the inside card along the halfway mark. My halfway mark was at 4 5/8″, but you should double check your halfway mark before scoring, just in case!
Step Three: Cut out the fabric pieces you will need for the snitch using the free printable pattern. I had both of these fabrics in my stash. I used a nice, thick gold brocade for the center of the snitch and a metallic mesh for the wings.
Step Four: Lay out the fabric snitch pieces on the cover card. Once you like the placement, you can use a couple pieces of tape to hold the wings of the snitch down. Place the tape on the ends of the wings that will be covered up by the center circle. Using a needle, poke holes about 3/8″ apart along the wings. This will make it easier to stitch through the paper and help to keep your stitches consistent. Stitch the wings to the card using a backstitch and gold embroidery floss. Stitch the center circle of the snitch down using a running stitch.
Step Five: Adhere the two pieces of the card together. The cover card, which you have stitched on, sits on top of the inside card so the stitching is covered. Line them up at the bottom as the cover card is designed to be slightly taller than the inside card. I used a tape runner to adhere the two pieces together and it worked very well.
The card is complete and ready to be gifted to a special couple :)
