Duration: for the first card about 30 min., then about 5 min. per additional card.
On the black clay cardstock, draw the dimensions of your card with a fine pencil. For the fold-out card, measure a 14.5 cm x 9.5 cm rectangle using a set square. Then cut it out and fold it exactly in the middle of the long side to form a card.
Next, cut a rectangle from the orange cardstock that measures 12.5 cm by 7.5 cm. Glue this to the center of the front of the card using paper glue.
Download here the bat template, print it out and cut out the bat as accurately as possible. Now you can use it as a template.
Tip: Print the template best on thick paper.
Write your desired text for the front in a suitable font, we have chosen in the example Gypsy Curse in size 33 pt.
By the way, on this page you can find many free Halloween fonts for download. If you choose a different font, make sure when you print out the text that it is the right size for your card.
Tip: If you’re not sure, scale your text document on screen to exactly the size of an A4 sheet of paper by holding it next to it. This way you can see exactly how big the font can be.
Place the bat template on the black cardstock, outline it with a fine pencil, and cut it out. If you’re making several cards of the same kind, do it the same number of times.
Cut out the printed text in the form of a speech bubble.
Now you just have to glue everything on. For the bat and the speech bubble, use standard paper glue. We glued on the plastic flies with a hot glue gun. But all-purpose glue works just as well.
Have fun crafting your bat halloween card and have a wonderfully horrifying Halloween party!
