A couple days ago, our nephew Ryan, celebrated his 9th birthday! Ryan is an awesome kid and I wish I lived closer to get to know him better!
Can't believe how grown-up he looks in this picture!
To show him that we are thinking of him, I sent a card that I'm sure he will love!
From what I know, Ryan likes Harry Potter, so I thought I'd create the character out of punch art. It was actually a lot simpler than I thought it would be! Here's how it turned out:
The card front is layered with embossed cardstock and striped designer paper. Most of the Harry Potter character was cut free-hand from pieces of cardstock, but I used punches for the head, hair, glasses, eyes, and hands. After putting it all together, I popped up the Harry Potter character to give the card some dimension. I love how it turned out!
Here's wishing Ryan a great year ahead!
