Handmade Halloween Card - Ghost, Castle Ruins, Bats and Pale Full Moon

To make this card you will need:

  • White card paper (15 x 30cm)
  • Indigo blue card paper (15 x 15cm)
  • Black card paper (approx. 15 x 15cm)
  • White card paper with slightly greyish tone for the ghost (approx. 8 x 8 cm)
  • 4 green adhesive gems (I used gems 2mm thick)
  • Cream card paper for the full moon (approx. 10 x 10 cm)
  • Double sided tape
  • Craft foam pads (I used Stix 2mm thick) 

I have set up and online shop - CRAFT MAGIC ONLINE SHOP- on my blog (top right corner). You can now purchase many crafting supplies right here. The shop is powered by Amazon, so you would be making the purchase through Amazon. I have just selected (and sorted into various categories) crafting products that Amazon sells. My blog's shop is divided into 2 parts; one offers paper crafting and scrapbooking supplies and the other one is for crafty kids and offers variety of beautiful crafty kits and products designed for children. 


Take white card 15cm x 30cm and fold it in half. Take a blue card paper (size 15cm x 15cm) and using double sided tape attach it to the white card. 

Take black card and cut out the castle ruin (15 cm width and 7.5 cm height) and 2 bats (bigger bat 6.5 cm width and 2.5 cm height, smaller bat 5.5 cm width and 2 cm height). Take the white card with gray tone and cut out the ghost (6 x 6 cm). Then take the cream card paper and cut out a circle (7.5 cm diameter) - the full moon.

Attach the full moon to the blue card using double sided tape. Then attach the castle ruin and the 2 bats, using foam pads, to the blue card (and over the full moon). Finally attach the ghost to the castle ruin, using foam pads. 

Add green gems as eyes to the ghost and one of the flying bats.


In my next posts I will show you a variation on this card design using brighter colour for the moon which brings out a colour of the whole card. Also I will show you in detail how to draw the castle ruin (with the uneven cut crenelations), ghost and the bat. This will be followed by couple Halloween Treat Bags. 

If you like, you can cut the castle ruin's crenelations straight. See pictures bellow:
