To me there is no time like Halloween to pick up the most fun, elegant, mysterious or cute card designs. Sparkles, spooky houses, owls and pumpkins in my favorite autumnal color pallet, make me smile. Once the stores are stocked with whimsical Halloween cards, I’ve begun my tradition of picking up a few to use for other occasions.
How do I do this? The key is to pick out a card with a cover that is not too “Halloweenie”. I simply buy Halloween stickers and matching construction paper to cover up the word “Halloween” (if written on the inside) which I replace with the occasion of choice, such as a birthday. I also have the benefit of looking forward to the time when I can give this wonderful card to it’s recipient. Of course I have to know in advance that the person would be happy with such a card.
The cards shown in my video are made by American Greetings. Here are a couple of affiliate link ideas to get you started:
