DIY Halloween Cards

This past weekend, the weather didn't feel very much like fall at all.  It was in the 90's and humid, and I was cranky about it to say the least.  I decided that I would put myself back into a cheerful fall mood by popping open a bag of candy corn and making some Halloween cards.  I've never made or even sent Halloween cards before, but I saw the mummy stamp on sale at Hobby Lobby over the Summer and couldn't resist.  The little dog pulling the mummy strings reminded me of my little Jax and at a sale price I could totally justify the purchase.  The rest of the items I used to make the cards were either on sale or in the dollar bins at Target, so altogether these cards were pretty cheap to make.  I think sending these out will be a great way to say hello in a nice personal note before the craziness of the holidays begins. 

These cards were pretty simple to make. I stamped and embossed the mummy and spider stamps, and then embellished the cards with some festive washi tape.  I colored in the mummy for a fun effect, but really had trouble deciding which color scheme I liked best. In the end, I just decided to make a few of both.  For a visual on how to stamp and emboss, see my Easter card post by clicking here.
