DIY Vintage Halloween Party Invite

Posted on September 11,2009 by Jennifer Carroll

Yesterday I passed my local roadside fruit stand and they had row after row of the most plump and cheery pumpkins ever! This got me thinking about Halloween parties and I've created this vintage inspired Halloween card with my vintage pumpkin note card set! These cards come in sets of 10 cards and 10 envelopes for $15.00. Click here to order.

It was so easy to make, I want to share how I did it with you!!

Using a program like Microsoft Word, I formatted a 3.5" x 5" page and typed in my text. I wrote:

Happy Halloween

Calling Ghosts & Goblins alike
Join us this Halloween night
Treats a plenty at this masked soiree
so please come out to play!

October 31st :: 8:00 p.m. :: Home of the Carroll's

The font I used for "Happy Halloween" is Carmencita. The rest of the text is in Incognito's Occidens.

The top margin for the card is 1.375". Side margins: 0.5" and the bottom is 0.375"

I created an envelope with the same fonts but I did add a little flourish next to Happy Halloween.

I hope this inspires you to be creative with these cards and make your own special Halloween invite. I'd love to see photos of what you create!

I'll be posting more creative ideas on how to use these cards soon. Stay tuned…

Happy Friday!
