Ghastly Cocktail Hour Invitations

My husband and I are planning a fun Halloween-themed get together, and I wanted to pop in really quickly to show you the invitations I made for the occasion!


I used Microsoft Word's "Chiller" font to type out the details and printed them on gray cardstock. Then, I added images from Hero Arts, DeNami Design and Village Arts Press and patterned paper from My Mind's Eye (see complete supply list below). So super FUN to make!

Here are a couple of close-ups:




I made 28 of these and was so happy with the results!!! I hope you like them, too, and are inspired to make something CRAFTY and FUN for Halloween!!!

Now, it's time to get busy working on some BOO-TIFUL decorations, SPOOKTACULAR treat bags, and the MUMMY-licious menu items!!! YAY!

Thanks for stopping by! Have a FANTASTIC day!
