DIY Halloween Cards - Handmade Card Ideas!


Hey, guys!  Halloween is only a week away and I wanted to share my latest creations for the spooky holiday.  This is the first year I've made homemade cards and it was so much fun!  I watched The Purge and Purge 2 while I made these.. it was the perfect crafty-filled Saturday!

This blog post isn't going to be a tutorial but just a guideline for those that may be interested in card making themselves.  Here's some of the basic tools and supplies I used .. enjoy!

THE BASICS & TIPS


Here are the essentials that I used for each card.  I chose a kraft A7 blank card & envelope set (A7: 5"x7" size cards) and my new favorite glue: Tombow Mono Aqua Liquid Glue.  Then you'll also want a pair of scissors, pen and ruler.


Above is all the fun stuff!  Use whatever you want to decorate!  I do recommend some scrapbooking paper so you can add more color to the background and I love the look of layered paper.  I also have loads of stickers, washi tape, paper doilies and other embellishments.  You can easily find these items at Michael's and Jo-Ann Fabrics.  Some of the stickers I even found at Dollar Tree!
