Use Classic Designs to Create Charming Halloween Cards
Halloween is a holiday full of time-honored traditions like building haunted houses and trick-or-treating around the neighborhood. This October, you have the opportunity to start your own spooky and sweet tradition by sending out Halloween cards to all of your friends, family members and neighbors, but that doesn't mean you can't celebrate the traditions of the past as well. Read on to find out how to incorporate your favorite classic designs into Halloween cards that offer fun and ghastly greetings for all of your favorite people.
Pumpkins are a Halloween staple that can make either a charming or chilling addition to your Halloween cards. Perfectly carved pumpkins with glowing smiles will make sweet Halloween cards, but if you want to create a more harrowing set of Halloween cards, opt for creepily carved jack-o-lanterns with jagged teeth and ominous grins.
Most people closely associate the act of dressing up with the celebration of Halloween, so using Halloween cards that feature characters in costumes is a great way to pay tribute to your family's traditions. If you're planning to send your Halloween cards to neighborhood kids or the children of friends and family members, look for cartoons dressed in classic princess, firefighter and ghost costumes. For a mature crowd, you can search for Halloween cards that feature more humorous, sarcastic costumes that will leave your loved ones in stitches.
If you have a variety of animal lovers on your mailing list, send Halloween cards that feature everyone's favorite creatures of the night. Black cats give chilling charm to any Halloween card, while eerie bats, spiders, owls, toads and other creepy crawly creatures are sure to add a spooky scare to your Halloween cards.
Whatever symbols you choose to highlight this year, your friends and family members are sure to love your creative (and creepy!) sense of Halloween card style!
