Vintage Halloween Cards – Monster Bash

Hello my friends! Today I have some vintage style Halloween cards featuring the new Monster Bash suite. This is a fun suite of spooky products that in the 2019 Stampin’ Up! Holiday Catalog.

Vintage Halloween - Monster Bash

Monster Bash Suite

There are lots spooky fun products to choose from in this suite. One of the first things that caught my eye were the coffin treat boxes. They are so easy to assemble and super fun to decorate. The little coffin treat holders come all cut, scored and ready to assemble! There are 12 boxes and lids in each pack for lots of spooky fun this Halloween.

Vintage Halloween Cards and Coffin Treat Box- Dracula

Besides the cool treat boxes, the ornate frame dies were the second thing that jumped out at me in this suite. The die cuts are absolutely stunning and I can see using them for all sorts of cards, not just Halloween. The scroll designs and vintage style are right up my alley! There are 11 dies in the set and they layer together nicely on the cards and to decorate the coffin treat box!

All of the Halloween cards showcase the many different ways that you layer the different ornate dies together to create some stunning effects. There is very little stamping on these cards. I know, I’m sorry but I just couldn’t help myself! I used the beautiful ornate frame die cuts to cut out images from the Monster Bash Designer Paper to decorate all of these cards.

Vintage Halloween Cards

Although I had a blast creating the first couple of Halloween cards, these two are my favorite because I created them to send to a couple of my “ghoul” friends. The first card is simply a 4 x 4 inch piece of one of the scroll patterns from the Monster Bash DSP adhered to a black card base. The greeting is stamped on a 1 x 4 inch piece of white cardstock using Basic Gray ink. My favorite part of this card are the little latch-like pieces adhered to the DSP. I simply cut out a piece of black cardstock using one of the small ornate frame dies. Then I cut the die in half and adhered each piece off the side of the card. This creates the illusion of little vintage straps. The straps you would find on an old vintage trunk.

The second card features the new Stylish Scroll emboss folder on a 5-1/4 x 4 inch piece of white cardstock. A 2 x 4 inch piece of DSP is adhered to the bottom of the white cardstock with a piece of scalloped ribbon adhered across the “seam” where the DSP meets the cardstock. The remainder of the card is decorated by layering different die cuts together. The ornate dies and the scroll patterned paper create such a cool vintage look!

I hope you enjoyed these Vintage Halloween card ideas! Join me on my Facebook page at 8:00am (CT) today and I will give you an up close look at how to make these cards. Plus, I will show you how easy it is to assemble the little coffin treat boxes.

Have a creative day! ~ Lynn
