Easy Halloween Cards to Make for Beginner Crafters

Last Updated on October 21, 2019 by Ellen Christian

I love making cards and playing with paper crafts. It’s one of my favorite types of crafts. As much as I enjoy it, I don’t have a lot of time to devote to it. When I search for projects, I want them to be fairly simple. I don’t have hours to devote to crafting so I look for crafts that can be done in a few minutes or half an hour. Since Halloween will be here soon, I have been searching for easy Halloween cards to make.

Easy Halloween Cards to Make

I love rubber stamping. Since I don’t have a very steady hand, I rarely draw.  When I want words or a cute design, I turn to rubber stamps. You really don’t have to be an artist to use a rubber stamp. Just ink them and go. I recently received products from Stampin’ Up! to review on my blog and decided to show you a few easy Halloween cards to make this year.

There are no set directions for making these cards.  So, I basically cut the Halloween themed designer paper into different shapes and arranged them on the card until I liked the way they looked. I added a strip of black on one in the center and then layered a set of 3 rectangles on top. I finished by stamping a Halloween saying in Pumpkin Pie.

For the second card, I arranged strips of Halloween themed designer paper of a black square. Then, I then cut out a white rectangle and cut it to look like a ribbon. I stamped three Halloween phrases in different colored ink.

Now that you know what to put on the outside of the card, have you given any thought to Halloween card sayings for the inside of the card? Here are a few that might work for you.

  • Keep it creepy!
  • Have a spooktakular Halloween!
  • Ghostly greetings
  • Happy Haunting
  • Have a bootiful Halloween
  • Eat, drink and be scary

If you’re looking for a few Halloween puns to put inside these easy Halloween cards, check out these:

  • What does the vegan zombie eat? Grains!
  • Why did the ghost go to the bar? For the boos!
  • Why doesn’t Dracula have any friends? Because he’s a pain in the neck.
  • What kind of music do mummies listen to? Wrap
  • Where does Dracula keep his savings? In the blood bank

I really made both of these cards in about thirty minutes.  There are tons of fun Halloween crafting supplies from Stampin’ Up from little kid cute to slightly scary for adults or older children.
