Planning a Halloween Party? Check out Chantalle's Invite!

Chantalle McDaniel has sent us a beautiful Halloween Invitation and tutorial!  It is so very clever, as she creates a pocket to hold her invite and the invite flips over for all the party specifics.
Lets hear from Chantalle as she tells us just how she's made it:

'Too cute to spook’ invite

Halloween is one of my very favourite times of the year. We host an annual costume party at our place and have loads of fun! If you are thinking about making up some invites for your party, the JBS Vintage Halloween collection is perfect!

The pocket was created by printing off some ‘Starry Night’ paper onto plain card stock. It took a bit of time to work out the double sided printing, hehe!  I have tiled the star print at the bottom a bit, so I could have the pattern show when I folded it over.
The children and pumpkin have been fussy for interest. Machine stitch your pocket closed.

The title was half printed directly onto the design and half printed off onto card stock and cut out. This adds great dimension. Machine stitch on for even more definition.

The reverse is a journalling card, increased to a large size. For a seamless look, sample the cream colour of the card and give your background the same colour so you don’t get a white edge. 
The design of this card has been set in a word procession programme (I use InDesign)

For a final flourish, the cute kitty has been given a slick of Glossy Accents to make her pop on the paper.

Thank you Chantalle!  Here are the supplies Chantalle used:

Not a hybrid scrapper?  Try using our October Papercrafting Kit to create the same "pocket type design" invitation.  The Papercrafting Kit comes with the Scary Cat clear stamp too!
