I enjoy making Handmade Halloween Cards. I don’t have many people to send them to, but it’s fun to send them to kids or add a card to a Halloween Treat.
This boring part is called the disclosure. It’s a fancy term that the FTC uses that says I need to let you know that this email contains affiliate links. Yeah….more fancy FTC words. In real people lingo, it means that if you click through any of the links on my website and make a purchase, I may get a small commission from it.

From cute to creeping, there are spiders, skeletons, witches, crows, and jack o lanterns to decorate your Halloween Cards and Halloween Party Decorations.
The only Halloween Rubber stamps that I have are sentiments that say “Boo!”, and “Happy Halloween” in a ghoulish bloody font. The Cricut has enough Halloween die cut shapes for me to create an endless array of Halloween Cards though.
This Jack o lantern is on the Doodlecharms Cricut Cartridge and his whimsical smile is great for a Halloween Card.
The ghost, spider, and frog are on the Paper Doll Dress Up Cartridge and are the perfect accents to go with the Jack o Lantern.

You wouldn’t think that Hello Kitty and Halloween would go together, but they make a perfect match for this sweet greeting card.
Halloween Party Invitations are a great project. These invites from The Inspiration Vault were made using the Cricut. They were pretty simple, and it wouldn’t take long to make a stack of them with a few basic supplies.
This awesome skeleton Handmade Halloween Card made by Nancy Nally of Buttons Galore and More has a vintage feel and is a little more “spooky” than the others I’ve shown you so far. Did you notice those really cool bat buttons?
Here’s another Halloween Greeting Card by Nancy Nally with a vintage feel. Graphic 45 papers and Buttons Galore and More buttons create an old time vibe.
This creative Jack-o-lantern card by Jennifer Priest has the coolest rosette made from crepe paper. Why didn’t I think of that?!?
She used colored pencils for the whole background, and she did an amazing job. She even has a video to show you how she did it.
Last year, I made Cricut Treat Bags using the Tags, Bags, Boxes and More Cartridge. I cut them out using Halloween patterned paper and decorated them with an owl and pumpkin from the Create A Critter 2 Cricut Cartridge. The shapes would be great on Handmade Halloween Cards too!
Sometimes, we run out of time, ambition, or supplies. That’s a good time to use this Halloween Pillow Box Printable. The bright colors and fun characters will make these treats fun to share.
