Ouija Board Invitations

For the outside of the invite I used the Cricut Halloween Chic cartridge

I saw these invites on Etsy and was determined to make them.
The layout for this invite is Portrait.
I downloaded a jpeg of a Ouiji board and cropped the images out.
Under insert tab I inserted each of the 4 pictures at a time. Sized them to fit half a page.
I clipped on the image and recolored it black and white and went to the page layout tab
under text wrapping on the right hand side. I set the images to "Behind Text" so I could move them
around the page as I wanted to.
For the Yes and no I used text boxed and an Arial font Bold size 20
For the "Your Spirit is requested to Materialize"
was done in copperplate Bold size 14.
The I Downloaded 3 fonts Nymphette Font size 36 for the accents by the RSVP. Letters A and B
The RSVP was done in  JFRingmaster size 36 and

The Halloween Soiree was tricky to firgure.
Under the insert tab in word there is a heading called word art.
This is where you go to shape the letters in a circular fashion.
I used the font CarnivalMF All donwloaded for free from
http://www.fontspace.com/rick-mueller/carnival size 36
"Don't be caught Dead..." copperplate Bold size 13
"Lakeville, MN" was Arial size 24.
I cut the invite in half on Certificate paper I found at office depot and glued it to a
black piece of cardstock paper that I folded in half.
