Haunted House Card


I created a Halloween based birthday card for a co-worker who loves Halloween. The card is made using a cascading fold which I learned to do here.

I used my silhouette cameo to cut all of the pieces. I attached the fence first and then started adding the bats and ghosts where I thought they looked good. I used acetate to hold them up so that they look like they are flying in the sky. The ghosts are made from clear vellum.
This is the card laying flat. The envelope had to be made pretty big to fit the whole card.

 The design and wording on the front was created with Silhouette Sketch Pens. I added a glittery black spider that I purchased from AC Moore.

The haunted house is attached to a tag that pulls out from the back. I stamped a simple happy birthday in the center.
