Last time I popped in to take a gander I finally came up with an idea on how to use them. The first one will end up going to daughter Amy's friend Jennie to give to her mama for her birthday. Her mother is an uber-fan of all things Harry Potter! I didn't know that until today. I thought she was just an uber-fan of all things quilts.
When I belatedly realized the store front on Fairy Houses sold WANDS - I immediately thought of HP! I printed more than the one set so I could have a marketplace, downloaded a HP looking font, and got busy!
Inside of card: From One Muggle to Another
HB not HP
~Base card PaperTrey Ink Sweet Blush card stock
~Basic Grey design paper Blush (used outside and inside)
~Crest hand created with Harry Potter like font on white card stock
~Happy Birthday printed on white card stock punched using Stampin' Up Word Window
~Lavinia digital image printed on white card stock, colored with Copics, edges smudged and distressed with Tim Holtz Edge Distresser
~Inside sentiment printed with laser printer
~Lined post it note for additional message (I always use lined papers inside for note writing...don't know about you but I like lines when I am writing!)

This cute Lavinia Hobbit House was obviously, as the name implies, destined for a Hobbit theme card - but what to do with it.... I decided that a Hobbit birthday card would call for an inside sentiment of something about "second cake".
Such fun designs. I will be NEEDING a few more digi purchases from Lavinia Stamps!
