Halloween Invites

I purchased these invitations at Michael's. They were Martha Stewart brand invites on sale from 39.95 to 9.95. I loved them because the inside had a little pocket where you could tuck the invite itself along with the reply card and return envelope. I found 2 Martha Stewart Dye cutters that I loved. One was a Skeleton head and another was a bat. I spray painted some black paper gold and cut out skeletons from there. After that I cut out white skulls.
I laid that white skulls on top of the gold skulls in the gold frame on the from of the card.
Then I cut black bats out. All Martha Stewart invites have an online template that you can use to print invites.

The design that I had was called Gilded Frame Invitation.
Once you find the invite click it and it will bring you to a word document.
I found the wording to my invite online @
The I used the Agncy FB font
and for the host names I used matterofact font.
I included the picture of a skeleton that I found on clip art with in the word doc.
I also think that a fun idea is to use the back of invites to post special requests directions or instructions for your guests. I used a candy corn for the back on this invite that I found on clip art as well.
Martha's website allows you to address the envelopes as well as back flaps of envelopes.
I decided to include a candy corn on the reply address envelope to tie everything together.
I got some spider web and hooked it to three corners of the inside of the card jacket.
and then placed the bats inside.
