Halloween Card Art

I have been meaning to show you guys all last week an idea for what can be done with your Charming Cozy Creations cards and invitations, but things got away from me.  So, I'm going to extend the giveaway for another few days to give everyone a chance to enter.

Anyway,  I thought my Halloween card was so cute and I wanted to come up with a fun way to display it with the rest of my Halloween decor.  So I printed the card with my regular ink-jet printer at an 8x10 on regular old paper.  Then I gave it a light spray with some finishing spray.  (To help seal the ink)  I cut a board I had laying around to 9x11.  Painted the board black and modge-podged the card to the board.  It worked great!  I was a little worried about the paper bleeding (and it did a teeny tiny bit) but really turned out surprisingly well!  Then I of course made it extra fun with some strategically placed glitter and a big old bow!

Ready to see?

So much fun right!

I think this would be a great way to create a keep sake for any special event.  Next baby announcement I have will definitely get this treatment!

I love how the glitter really made the elements pop.

 (you can see in that last picture how the colors did bleed a little.  I think it actually helps give the picture a vintage look so I'm still happy with it!)

And of course, if you read this blog you know how I love a big bow!

So much fun! 

I took pictures outside today because the lighting was terrible this morning, but it looks so cute tucked in with the rest of my Halloween decor.

So go enter the Charming Cozy Creations giveaway so you can make one of your own!

As always I'm linking to these great parties and events:

Charming Cozy Creations- GIVEAWAY!

I am so excited to introduce my newest sponsor!  


Christy has such a fun little Etsy shop full of custom digital cards, invitations, announcements and more.  As someone who dabbles in graphic design, I have a deep appreciation for what it takes to create a great graphic... and this stuff is so cute!

Here are a couple of my favorites from her shop.


Boredom Buster Cards

 Christmas Card

But do you want to see something even more fun?   Christy offered to make me a custom card!  So I sent her a cute picture of my little ones and had her make me a Halloween card that I can send out to the Grandparents.  Wanna see it?!

So incredibly cute!  I can't wait to get some printed.  And aren't my kiddos so cute?!  This was them on their first day of school this fall. 

The card is so fun that I have some other ideas of things to do with it running through my head.  More on that to come.


Christy has so generously offered to give one of you the choice between a large party package in any theme of your choice...  Her party packages include:  Invitations,  Thank You Notes,  A Party Banner and Favor Tags/Cup Cake Toppers.


a $30 credit to her shop!

To enter check out Charming Cozy Creations and let me know what your favorite item is.

I will pick a winner next week!  In the meantime Christy has also set up the discount code SASSY10OFF for 10% off your purchase.

Good Luck!
