Elegant Halloween Card

halloween-card-1Boy, this month went by fast! Its been so fun creating vintagey Halloween projects!

Do you have fun plans for the big day? I get to open the door to the trick-or-treaters this year. Usually I’m out and about with the kids, and my husband passes out the candy. The kids are going in different directions this year, and I’m looking forward to first, staying warm, and second, seeing all the cute costumes that come to our door!


For this last Halloween project, I decided to make a card incorporating a chalkboard frame that I showed a couple months ago at this post HERE. Using a chipboard frame, simply frame a piece of black cardstock. I used a white colored pencil instead of chalk to write my message-a bit more control that way. A glittered die cut bat and a black satin bow add a touch of elegance to the card.


These fun sparkly bats, hot glued to a small black clothes pin, make for a simple treat sack closure. And, a die cut border of skulls adds a touch of fanciful macabre to the card. A quick ensemble with a touch of elegance.

I hope you have a safe, fun Halloween! And, don’t forget to watch It’s the Great Pumpkin Charlie Brown-truly a vintage classic! 🙂

Happy Treating,


skeletel greeting

    Hi Michelle,
    What a clever idea! I love the black satin ribbon and silver glitter combination, especially. No REAL bat ever had it this good! Mary T
