My husband and I host a Halloween party every year, and it’s coming up very soon – this Saturday as a matter of fact! So today I’m sharing an idea for an invitation for your Halloween event. I used the Graveyard Gate stamp set, which is available in a bundle with the exquisite Detailed Gate Thinlits Dies, to create a spooky yet inviting scene. It’s very simple
Here’s what I made:
Here’s what I did:
Cut and scored with my Stampin’ Trimmer:
- Basic Gray card stock (CS) cut to 4 1/4″ x 11″, scored at 5 1/2″
- Pumpkin Pie CS cut to 4″ x 5 1/4″
- Basic Black CS cut to 4″ x 5 1/4″
- Very Vanilla CS to cut 3 7/8″ x 5 1/8″
Stamped with the Graveyard Gate stamp set:
- gate, arch, raven, and bats in Basic Black ink onto the Very Vanilla CS layer
- columns in Basic Gray ink onto the Very Vanilla CS layer
- NOTE: the Stamp-a-ma-jig makes it easy to line up all the images. I used it for everything but the bats.
Die Cut using the Patterned Pumpkins Thinlits:
- jack-o-lantern from a piece of Spooky Night Designer Series Paper
Assembled the card:
- jack-o-lantern glued onto the Very Vanilla CS layer
- Very Vanilla CS layer glued onto Basic Black CS layer
- Basic Black CS layer glued onto the front of the Basic Gray card base
- Pumpkin Pie CS glued to the inside of card base
