My son’s birthday is at the end of this month, which means it is time to party plan! This year, he wants a Halloween party with lots of pumpkins and Jack o’ Lanterns. Here is the invitation that will be mailed out this week.

The inside of the card without the information
Size: Flip Fold Card; closed dimensions are 4.25” wide and 5” tall (included the circle die cut)
Extra Details: I found a tutorial for this type of card on Christi Beck’s YouTube channel, called Stamp In Texas. Following her directions I created the card base and die cut a circle from the top right section of the card. I also cut a 4” x 4” white panel, a smaller black circle, a small white circle, and a 4” x 6” white panel.
I heat embossed “You’re Invited” with white embossing powder on the top flap. I added some orange glitter tape under the embossing and folded the extra over the edge.
Using masking, I created a lineup of pumpkins on the bottom of the square white panel. I added some Jack o’ Lantern faces with a thin black Sharpie. I stamped the ghost so he could hide under the top flap. I used colored pencils to add color to the scene. Then, I adhered the scene panel to the card base.
I layered the white circle on the black circle and stamped the Boo speech bubble. I added some colored pencil to the white circle as well. Then I adhered the circle to the scene panel where it pops out through circle die cut.
I added the party information and some stamping to the 4”x 6” panel and adhered it to the inside of the card. I love the way this invitation turned out.
