Halloween Invitations From the Crypt

Like I told you in my last post, I've been busy getting ready for our upcoming annual Halloween party. I even managed to send out some cool handstamped invitations. I'm ashamed to say that the last couple of years I've relied on E-vite or Facebook to invite everyone...oh the horrors, right!? Here I am sitting here with all these fabulous Halloween stamps and then not sending out handmade invitations? It ended up being well worth my effort, because I've gotten so many nice comments from those who have received them and they are excited about the party.

Here is a close up of just one of the invitations.

I stamped the skull image from the set From the Crypt on Glossy card stock using Black Stazon and then sponged on Certainly Celery, Pumpkin Pie & Perfect Plum ink. The Perfect Plum layer is embossed using the Spider Web Embossing Folder found in the Holiday Mini Catalog. The little tag is from the retired set Eat Drink & Be Scary, but if you have My Digital Studio, it is included there. I embossed the tag with Black Embossing Powder. The spider web border along the bottom was created using a Martha Stewart punch.

For the inside I printed the info on my computer but then did a little stamping using Pumpkin Pie ink and images from both Graveyard Gala & From the Crypt.

I couldn't mail these bad boys out in a naked envelopes, right? So I used the Midnight Musings Jumbo Wheel to decorate the flaps, and added a couple spiders for good measure.

Thanks for dropping by today...ENJOY your day!
