Halloween Invite: Version 1

Getting ready for our 3rd annual Halloween Hunt. Our party will include kids ages 3-6 and will feature "the hunt" in the backyard where the kids wear their costumes and hunt for treasures in the yard. They will find small toys, glow bracelets and all kinds of treats. I am sharing one of the invitations.

I started with the wee Memories Challenge #23 generously sponsored by Your Next Stamp. The challenge was to use orange, string or scallops (2 of the 3) on project. Mine features orange paper and string.

I cut the spider from the Doodlecharms cartridge on the Cricut. I covered the front with mod podge and then sprinkled their little bodies with black flocking powder. I must admit that this was a huge mess, but ended in a big pay-off of cuteness! I put them through the Xyron to adhere to the card and of course added google eyes for fun. The cute banner was made with Lawn Fawn's "Bannerific" set and the letters were stamped with their "Harold's ABCs" set. I used a very small hole punch to thread the banner.


Stamps: Lawn Fawn's "Bannerific" and "Harold's ABC"
Papers: MME's "The Spider's Web" and cardstock
Inks: Memento black and Spiced Marmalade Distress
Other: Orange and black floss, google eyes, buttons, glue dots, pop dots, Mod Podge, Studio G flocking powder

Cuts: Cricut "Doodlecharms", Spellbinders Labels Eight

Thank you so much for stopping by today! Have a blessed day! -Kelly
