Too cute to spook - Jenni Bowlin Studio

Right now, the cutest Jenni Bowlin Studio Vintage Halloween kit is on sale! I have used it, along with the very versatile Printer's Block Alphas to create this hybrid Halloween party invitation.

The pocket was created by printing off some ‘Starry Night’ paper onto plain card stock. It took a bit of time to work out the double sided printing, hehe! I have tiled the star print at the bottom a bit, so I could have the pattern show when I folded it over. The children and pumpkin have been fussy for interest. Machine stitch your pocket closed.

The invitation title was half printed directly onto the design and half printed off onto card stock and cut out. This adds great dimension. Machine stitch it on for even more definition.

The reverse is a journalling card, increased to a large size. For a seamless look, sample the cream colour of the card and give your background the same colour so you don’t get a white edge. The design of this card has been set in a word procession programme (I use InDesign).

For a final flourish, the cute kitty has been given a slick of Glossy Accents to make her pop on the paper.

I'm sure you'll agree, it's too cute to spook! For more info and to see the other DT girl's awesome examples, head over to the JBS Inspiration blog.
