{its a halloween party...}

Planning a halloween party soon? It is Smitha here, to share some ideas with you. Here is what you could make for the party invites! Actually these cards could be made for any party, and the best part is, they are simple enough to mass produce...
These are all hybrid products made with the new and AMAZING collection by Carina Gardner called "The Raven"
I first designed the cards, tag and box digitally, and printed them onto 8.5 by 11 inch white cardstock sheets. I then trimmed them to size.
Now some photos of each of them separately,
The invite card was simple to make. Simply fold the cardstock and form the card. Add a ribbon and make a bow. Add jewels beneath the sentiment. Isn't that raven stunning?
Next the candy box, once I cut out the box form (I made my own template for it here), I scored the fold lines and made the box shape. Added a satin ribbon and bow on top. I then popped up the "creepy candy" using foam adhesive.
A quick tag: here I just inked the image, made a bow and added a line of jewels.

For after the party, I made a thank you card along the same lines. This is a single layer card,  I used a precision knife to make small slits so that I could weave the ribbon through, and tied it up with a small bow.

Supplies used:
Software: Adobe photoshop CS5
Digital kit: Carina Gardner "The RAven"
Cardstock: Wausau
Ribbon: Stamping up
Jewels: Studio g
Fonts: American typewriter
