Scary Movie Invitations

What do Screams and shrieks,  Popcorn and candy, A big screen and a room full of teens have in common?Well it must be a scary movie party! For the last 3 years Chella has hosted a very scary movie night for her friends in lieu of a Halloween party. Each year the movie has gotten a little more spooky and the screams can be heard throughout the neighborhood! Imagine a group of teen girls scared silly!  Oh and don't think those boys don't yell just as loud because they DO {fun} Its a great way to celebrate the eerie season!

Can you believe she would not let me use any glitter on the scary movie invitations? I really wanted to give the ghosts a spritz of shimmer...but you would think I was turning the card pink and lacy she was so offended by my idea! LOL
  I kept the card simple, and there are two reasons for that:
  1. I had to make a lot of them...all those bitty windows are a nightmare on elm street!
  2. I wanted the house on haunted hill to be center stage!
This invite was made using the happy hauntings cartridge and my cricut expression , the house was cut 6" and I used the multicut feature to really make sure those windows and gates cut...tip DO NOT use Stampin'Up black cardstock to try this even though its usually my favorite paper its way to heavy for the intricate cuts! the Ghosties were cut 3.75" and popped with foam dots.

Do You have any Halloween traditions that are a little off the beaten path? I would love to hear what you all do for Halloween fun! Until then Happy Creating!

Very cool invite card. It would be very hard for me not to put glitter on the ghost too.
