Happy Halloween! This is my favorite day of the year! The day that you can be whatever and whoever you want to be. It’s also a day that celebrates the macabre… so for all of you lovers out there who are a bit obsessed with the dark side, I have 3 perfect printable cards for you. Ideal for gifting to your sinister significant other on the morning of your wedding, or any ol’ day that calls for a little extra love! As always, I’ve relied on my trusty Canon PIXMA MG7720 to make the printing of these cards look fabulous!
Print + Cut
At the end of the post, click to download all three “haunting love card” designs including the three different envelope liners. Print your choice of card design onto 8.5″ x 11″ cardstock. I love the speed and precision of my Canon PIXMA MG7720 Wireless All-in-One Printer, I also love that it’s gold! Using a paper trimmer, trim on the lines provided and then fold the card in half.
Round The Corners
Round the corners of the cards using your favorite corner punch. While this step is optional, I think it adds a special little something.
Make The Liner
Print your choice of envelope liner onto regular weight paper, not cardstock. Then trace your envelope and cut out the shape about 1/8″ inside the tracing line. This can be done with ANY shape/size envelope. Slip the liner inside the envelope and glue it down to the top flap of the envelope only, that way when the envelope is folded the liner won’t bunch up!
That’s it. That’s all there is to it. Making a special card for your favorite ghoul is quick and easy, especially when you have a great printer and a super cute design!
