Harry Potter snowy owl Christmas cards
As you know from Little Jo’s Harry Potter birthday, we are big fans of Harry Potter. In trying to come up with a Potter-themed Christmas card this year, I decided it would be fun to re-purpose the Hedwig snowy owl invitation that Chica made for the party.
First, we made a couple of modifications. The original invite was sized quite large, to fit in a large envelope. I wanted to scale it down a bit for my Christmas cards, though, so Chica made me a new 5″ x 7″ version, perfectly sized for a A7 standard 5 1/4″ x 7 1/4″ envelope. Here’s the new download:
I had my cards printed at Shutterfly with a pearlescent finish. I cut slits just the same as the birthday invitation but instead of sliding in a scroll of party information, I slid in a blue candy cane! We believe that Harry Potter would love receiving a card just like this, don’t you?
