Ghostly Halloween Party Invitation

Hello Everyone!
Another rainy day here in Michigan, USA.  Great excuse to hang out, make a few cards, and do a bit of blogging.  I would like to share with you Halloween themed party invitations in two colors.  I stamped a spooky ghost on chalk board paper with chalk inks.  I used two of the new release September collection from Technique Junkies.  Take a look.

Materials List:
Stamps: Ghost and Be Scary (Sentiment) both from Technique Junkies
Ink: Cloud White and Persimmon Versa Magic Chalk ink; black dye
CS: black chalk board, gray, orange
DP: Halloween prints
Gray Mesh trim
Tissue Paper
black ribbon
Label Punch

Make both:

  • Make card bases from gray and orange CS
  • Add a layer of DP to each card
  • Glue the mesh on the gray card, the tissue and black ribbon (with a knot in one end) to the orange card

  • Stamp the Ghost on the chalk board CS with chalk ink and add to each card
  • Stamp the sentiment with black dye ink and punch out label shape
  • Add label to card
  • Tie a bow in black ribbon and to gray card

Super fun scary invitation.  This card would work equally well as a Halloween card.  Check out all the New Releases.  Also, the October new Releases are up on the site a bit early! Enjoy looking at those too!!  See you next time!!
