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

You're Invited halloween party invitation using Stampin' Up! Graveyard Gate bundle by Stamp Candy


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
