Handmade wedding card with a golden snitch stitched to the front of the card.

Create a fun handmade Harry-potter themed card for an engagement or wedding! A couple months ago, two good friends of mine got engaged. Since they are planning a Harry Potter-themed wedding, it seemed only fitting to create a Harry Potter engagement card for them. 

The cards feature a golden snitch made using gold fabric and hand-stitched to the card using embroidery floss. If you are not a regular sewer, don’t let this discourage you from trying this craft! It is easier than it looks! Especially because you will be pre-punching holes in the paper that you will then follow with the thread. I hope you’ll give this a try. The card is a sweet handmade gift for a special couple.

How to Make a Golden Snitch Card

The Free Printable – Including Editable Files!

I turned the card I designed into a free printable that you can use to get started. The PDF packet comes with three versions of the inner card with wording for an engagement, wedding plus a blank version that just reads Congratulations. I have also included an editable file that can be used with the free version of Adobe Acrobat Reader. You can use this to edit the initials, as well as the pronouns, on the front of the card.

To use the editable version you will need to use the free version of Adobe Acrobat Reader and may need to download the free fonts first. For this card, I used the fonts “Hickory Jack” by Brittney Murphy Design and “Lumos” by Carpe Saponem.

The free printable and editable file can be found in my Free Resource Library.

Supplies Needed:

Step by Step Tutorial

Step One: Download and print the card.

Use the printable cards as is, or use the editable version to customize it. You can edit the couple’s initials and the pronouns at the top of the card. Print the card on white cardstock and cut the pieces out with a paper trimmer or scissors.

Step Two: Create the golden snitch out of fabric.

Cut out the fabric pieces you will need for the snitch using the free printable pattern. I used fabric I found in my stash including a nice, thick gold brocade for the center of the snitch and a metallic mesh for the wings. You could use any combination of gold fabric but I’d recommend something solid for the center and something sheer for the wings.

Gold embroidery floss lays next to the card.

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 push pin or needle, poke holes about 3/8″ apart along the edges of 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. 

Gold embroidery floss is used to attach the golden snitch's wings.

Step Three: Attach the card cover and finish the card.

Adhere the two pieces of the card together. The cover card, which you have stitched on, is adhered to folded inner card, this the stitching is covered up on the inside. The cover card is designed to be slightly longer than the inside card.  I used a tape runner to adhere the two pieces together and it worked really well.

The card is complete and ready to be gifted to a special couple :)
