Last month, in my post 40 Fantastic Beltane Crafts DIY Projects and Décor Ideas for May 1st, I discussed the fact that we were fast approaching the halfway point in the year – aka, Halfoween – until October 31st returns.
We are even closer to All Hallows’ Eve now and as a result, I have been massively in the mood for classic Halloween colours and imagery.
Whereas plenty of folks make winter holiday season cards all throughout the span of the calendar, as many of you know, I create Halloween cards and other spooky season themed crafting projects all year long.
They bring me bliss and further strengthen the bond I have with my favourite (and most sacred) day of the year: Halloween + Samhain.
Plus, come those knee-weakingly gorgeous days of early to mid-autumn, doing so means that I usually have numerous festive Halloween cards (et al) ready to give to friends and family. 💌
And, they are also the ideal way for me to utilize the #MakeHalloween365 hashtag that I launched last year so that Halloween adoring creatives of all types could share their work and be inspired by that of other people.
As you might guess, this fun vintage themed Halloween card is my #MakeHalloween365 project for the month of May.
Creating it in the heart of Beltane season – which is the corresponding sabbat to Samhain on the opposite side of The Wheel of The Year – felt especially meaningful to me.
The Witching Hour adorable vintage image and classic fall colour Halloween card
Knowing that I wanted to go with a timeless fall + Halloween colour scheme for this delightful project, I selected a palette of pumpkin-y orange, aged cream, deep gold, and midnight black.
And how fitting the latter is when you consider the sentiment that appears on this card.
It reads the “The Witching Hour”, which while some people place later in the night/early morning (in the range of 3 – 4 am, when the dark heart of the night is still beating strong and dawn has yet to crack the sky’s surface once again), many others view this time as occurring from midnight to 1 am.
The concept of the witching hour, while certainly intertwined with Halloween + Samhain, applies to every night of the year and is an extraordinarily powerful and poignant point in the day to carry out activities pertaining to one’s witchery, Paganism, or spirituality in general.
And if you can do so bathed in the moon’s silvery light, all the better (though that is by no means essential, of course).
When I was but a wee lass, my (very talented!) mom made me an adorable witch’s costume from Halloween print fabric. A sturdy orange trash bag was utilized as an attached cape – which is all kinds of clever in my books (especially given the very real possibility of rain or snow that we faced on October 31st).
I wore that handmade witch costume on at least two, possibly three, different Halloweens throughout my youth. A few years later, my little sister would go on to sport it as well.
While to the best of my knowledge, this costume was likely either given away to other youngsters or lost to the hands of time at some point, I still have a scanned photo (care of my sweet mama) from the 1980s of me wearing it.
It was this very costume that I was thinking about as I set out to make my latest handmade Halloween card.
And in a flash, I remembered a sheet of Authentique Twilight paper I had picked up a while back that stars some fantastic vintage Halloween images. One of which was a sweet little girl dressed as a witch herself.
The fact that this image tied in excellently with the colour palette I had already determined was the icing on the cake – or should I say, the caramel on the apple. 😄
As, this far out still from October 31st, I am not sure yet if this card will be mailed or delivered in person, I opted to keep its depth below the minute two centimetres that Canada Post permits letter mail to be before it crosses into parcel territory (regardless of the other dimensions and weigh involved).
Naturally though, true to form, I wasn’t about to sacrifice too many layers or embellishments. 😊
Doing so came together by building up a base of numerous layers of cardstock and paper to which I added a piece of cream-hued crocheted trim, two felt bats (I gave them cute little gold rhinestones as eyes), a button + rhinestone topped selection of trims, and quartet of gold rhinestones around the outer corners of the central image.
And just about as fast a real pair of bats – or a darling little Halloween witch on her broom – could zip across the enchanting Halloween night sky, my card was complete.
This design is quite easy and all things considered, not too brutal on the ol’ pocketbook – especially if you already have most or all of the types of supplies used on this Halloween card project to hand.
Should you be keen to whip up one yourself or use it as an inspirational jumping-off point for your own festive Halloween cards, read on for a complete list of the materials used plus detailed step-by-step directions on how to make this super cute vintage-inspired All Hallows’ Eve greeting.

How to make a witch themed vintage-inspired Halloween card
Begin by making a card base from cream/taupe colour cardstock. Ink all four edges of the front (and for that matter, the back, too, if you would like 😊) with golden brown ink.
From the Spook Hill 8”x8” Paper Pad cut out a slender pumpkin print border strip and adhere it vertically to the left-hand side of the card base.
Using pinking sheer decorative edge scissors (or actual pinking sheers) cut a piece of black cardstock a little smaller than your card base. Adhere to card base.
Cut a piece of orange cardstock a wee bit smaller than the previous layer. Adhere to previous layer.
Using the same decorative edge pinking sheer scissors, cut a piece of gold metallic cardstock just a whisper tinier than the previous layer. Adhere to previous layer.
Cut a piece of Haunted House Witching Hour paper from Carta Bella the same width as the previous layer, but just under half of its. Adhere to previous layer.
Then, using the Fall Breezy Stripes flax coloured plaid paper from Photo Play, repeat the same process as above only this time the plaid paper will go on the bottom half of the card, as shown. Before adhering it down, ink the visible edges with golden brown ink.
Die cut an ornate rectangle piece from metallic gold cardstock. Run a piece of cream/ivory crochet trim across the middle of this piece, wrapping its ends underneath. Adhere to the back of the die cut gold cardstock rectangle and then adhere that to the centre of the existing card layers.
Use the pinking sheer decorative edge scissors to cut another piece of metallic gold cardstock, making it a bit smaller on all sides than the Carta Bella broom print paper.
Before adhering that layer down, tuck and adhere one of the black felt bats partially underneath of it on the upper left-hand side, as shown. Then adhere the orange cardstock rectangle to the previous layers.
With the stitched edge rectangle die, cut a rectangle from orange cardstock. Adhere to previous layer.
Next, cut the adorable vintage witch girl image from the Authentique Twilight Eight Paper.
Using the same cream/taupe cardstock as the card base, create a very slender mat for the vintage witch girl image. Ink the edges of this piece of cardstock with black ink (brown or dark orange ink would work nicely here as well).
Adhere vintage witch girl piece to the cream/taupe cardstock.
Cut a piece of black cardstock a tiny bit bigger than the cream/taupe cardstock. Adhere cream/taupe cardstock to the black layer and then adhere the black layer to the previous card layers.
Fussy cut two brooms from the Carta Bella Haunted House Witching Hour paper. Adhere one each to the left and right-hand sides of the central image panel, positioning them so that each one is at an angle, as shown.
Take the sentiment (“The Witching Hour”) sticker and lightly rub the lettering, which is white in its natural state, with golden brown ink to tint the letters so that they better match the colour palette of this card. (Alternatively, you could use a suitable marker or even a coloured pencil to do the same thing as well.)
Adhere sentiment to the bottom center of the vintage witch girl panel.
Take one relatively small piece each of flax/muted gold, orange, and black seam binding, layer them together, fold them in half, and adhere them on the left-hand side of the lower half of the card.
Take your black button, top it with an orange button, and then with a gold rhinestone. Adhere these elements together and then to the “fold” area of the seam binding.
Place one of the larger of the two sizes of gold rhinestone embellishments around each corner of the black cardstock central panel so that it sits partially on that layer and partially on the orange cardstock layer below it.
Adhere the second black felt back to the upper right-hand side of the card, as shown.
Lastly, adhere two teensy tiny gold rhinestone embellishments to each of the bats so as to give them eyes.
And just like that, you have one sweet, classic, and very versatile handmade Halloween card to give away or keep and use as wonderfully festive home décor.
The comfort and inspiration of nostalgia
Though not everyone – myself included – had a Cleaver family style childhood, I am tremendously grateful for the positives that my youth did house at times.
Few come close on that front than the Halloweens that I experienced while growing up.
They were earnest, cheerful events filled with handmade costumes and decorations, Unicef boxes, bracingly cold Canadian night air, and a sense of exhilaration that no special event – my birthday included – could top for me back then.
Nor to this very day. I continue to get no less giddy now at the prospect of another brand new All Hallows’ Eve than I did all those decades ago.
I think about Halloween, be it past, present (year), or future, just about every day of my life – often many times a day for that matter.
It is vital that we each have things in our lives that speak to our hearts, souls, and creativity alike.
Halloween is one of the biggest and most important of those for me.
The roots of this passion took hold back before that photo of me as a wee youngster with her classic plastic pumpkin pail of sweet treats was even snapped. And it is safe to say that they have only continued to grow further every day of my life since.
I adore using Halloween memories to inspire current craft projects (not to mention other things as well, such as October 31st menus, costumes, and decorations) and when you swirl vintage – another lifelong passion of mine – into the mix as well, I am on cloud nine.
In the coming countdown to Halloween months, you can look forward to plenty of festive content including – all things willing – no shortage of additional brand new spooky season 2022 papercrafting projects from me.
Right here and now though, it is still Springoween and as eager as I am for Halloween’s return, I am grateful for the sunny side of the year and the time it grants me – and crafters everywhere – to make a slew of festive fall projects in the lead up to that bewitchingly awesome holiday. 🧡
When do you tend to start your October 31st related crafting? Be it pertaining to Halloween or otherwise, do you like to use treasured memories as inspiration for some of your creative projects? 🧹🎃🦇
PS: Did you know that there is a paper crafting challenge group dedicated solely to making Halloween projects the whole year through? I caught wind of it a little while ago and have been meaning to take part, but so often seem to forget in the midst of creating, photographing, and blogging my projects.
I am head-over-heels with Two Old Bats Halloween Challenge Blog and am entering this project into it as my inaugural foray into that challenge site.
If you have not yet discovered them yourself and also adore making Halloween paper crafts, be sure to zip on over and give them a peek! 😀
Fabulous card and I liked seeing you as a child!
Aww, thank you SO much, sweet Donna. Care of my mom, one of my grandmas, and an aunt, I have been fortunate to gather up (scans of) a handful of pictures from my youth, after losing all of the ones I had before in the arson fire we experienced back in 2016.
I will definitely look for places here and there to pepper others throughout some of my posts (no doubt Halloween-related ones very much included 🥰).
I hope that your June is off to a stellar start and that you have a very happy spring-into-summer month. 🌞
How cute is that card, and that photo of a 3-year old you, which put a huge smile on my face! Seems you were mad about Halloween from a very tender age 🙂 xxx
How right you are, dear Ann! There isn’t a point in my memories when I was not OBSESSED with all things fall and Halloween. No doubt the fact that my mom dressed each of her three kids up in costumes from their very first respective Halloweens onward helped to plant the (pumpkin) seeds of that passion in me/us all the more.
Thank you very much for your wonderful comment, my sweet friend. I am hoping to do some blog post reading catching up in the next few days and will be headed straight for your wonderful site in the process. 😘
Oh my goodness, what a fun card for Halloween! I’m loving all those cute bats and brooms and the wonderful layering with a vintage image and some great ribbons too! Your Halloween costume from way back then is just too cute and just look at that pretty blonde hair! Wishing you a great week ahead with some wonderful weather too!
You’re sweeter than a whole year’s worth of Halloween candy, dear Carol. Thank you very much for your terrific comment – including the wonderfully kind things you said about that childhood snap of me.
All three of my mom’s kids were born with very blonde hair. Mine turned to a ridiculously dull + unflattering mousy brown as I hit my teens, my brother’s teeters between blond and light brown, and my sister’s morphed into a lovely shade of light to medium brown.
It was not uncommon when we were little to have people ask my parents if we/they were Nordic given their trio of fair-skinned, blond(e) youngsters. (We do have some very distant Nordic blood, but it’s anyone’s guess as to how much that may or may not have played into our hair colour).
Big thanks again, my lovely friend. Wishing you the happiest, sunniest, and most enjoyable of Junes! 🌞
So delighted to see this post and at the halfoween point too! Really LOVE that darling Vintage image and you always put so many wonderful details into your cards! This one is no exception…from metallic gold, to borders, to peeking out bats and seam binding too! Super cute photo of your past self with your costume. Love those raised eyebrows! TFS!
Thank you abundantly, my very dear friend. I am beyond grateful to my mom, paternal grandma, and one of my aunts for rushing to share photos from my childhood with me in the wake of the arson fire we experienced in 2016. Thanks to their kindness and generosity, I now have at least 25 – 30+ such images again, several of which pertain to Halloween.
Making this classically festive Halloween card (coupled with hitting the “Halfoween” point in the year) put me all the more in the mood for fall’s return. The fact that the weather here has been more in keeping with autumn than spring teetering on summer so far this season is only serving to up that longing all the more! 🎃🥰🧡
I hope that your June is off to a wonderful start and that it blossoms into a splendidly happy, safe, and fun-filled summer. 🌞
I just love your attention to detail on this. All those perfectly sized mats and layers and the pinked edges. I can’t get over the fact that you use scissors and yet your edges are so straight and clean. that is a real skill. You are definitely a master of this type of card. Love the different ribbons and those bats too. That image is really reminiscent of the picture of you as a cute little tot in your halloween costume. Thanks for sharing it. Thanks too for your visits to my blog earlier. It is always a pleasure xx
You genuinely made me blush, dear Hilary (so much so that Tony asked me if I was feeling warm 😄). Thank you for the awesomely kind and encouraging compliments – as well as the super sweet things you said about that childhood Halloween photograph of me.
I actually have a speckling of memories from that Halloween (the first that I can really, confidently say that about – though there may be the faintest traces of memories from the year prior to when this image was captured), so the fact that a photo from it still exists with our family makes this image all the more dear and meaningful to me.
Many heartfelt thanks again for everything, my sweet friend. You are so very welcome for those blog visits. I’m hoping to do so blog posting catching up again over the next few days, so assuming that happens, you’ll be seeing some fresh ones from me again quite soon. 🥰
Oodles of hugs,
This card is so cute! I love it! Halfway to Halloween has really become a big thing, at least around me!
I remember a couple years ago I was at Knott’s Berry Farm in April and saw a ton of the “Haunt Monsters” sans their makeup and costumes but still dressed in “spooky” outfits and I was like “Huh, what’s that about” and a friend told me “Oh, it’s half way to Halloween so the monsters get together and hang out.”
Each year more and more events happen! Disneyland offered spooky treats and invited influencers (I was not among them) to preview what is in store at the parks this fall. I just attended a “Halfway to Halloween Spooky Swap Meet” and then later this summer we will be attending Midsummer Scream, a summer event celebrating Halloween and giving a preview of the events coming in fall.
Thank you SO much, dear Janey. I always adore hearing from you and enjoyed learning more about how Halfoween is catching on south of the 49th. No doubt there are other Canadians besides myself who mark this fa-boo-lous point on the calendar, but I haven’t encountered many of them yet.
The Halfway to Halloween swapmeet + upcoming Midsummer Scream events sounds AMAZING!!! I truly, truly love how many events pertaining to a huge range of interests and passions exist in the States. Even in big cities, we tend to have considerably fewer up in Canada (which likely taps into the classic stereotype – which is not without a legitimate basis – of many Canadians being more reserved and apt to keep to themselves).
If anyone wants to start an event like those here in BC, I would be thrilled to lend a (skeleton) hand and help to publicize it far and wide. (I am not in a solid enough state of health at present to do so myself. Perhaps one day though. 😀)
I hope that you and Patrick have a stellar countdown to All Hallows’ Eve and a ton of fun at any and all spooky season-related events you attend between then and now. 🎃
Autumn, your Halloween pic from back in the day is awesome. What a little cutie you were! I love your amazing vintage card. You have such an amazing knack for creating beauty with layers, texture, and color!
You flatter me something fierce, dear Celeste. Thank you with a heart that is warmed through and through for your wonderfully kind words.
And a very big thanks as well for saying such sweet things about this childhood snap of me. I have a few memories from that night still to this very day, so am all the more grateful that at least one photograph still exists from the first Halloween that I can definitively recall (I have a vague sense of the previous one, but not crystal clear memories).
I hope that your month is off to a sunny, terrific start, my lovely friend (I plan to do some blog catching up in the coming days, so chances are you’ll be seeing a flurry of comments again from me quite soon).
Wonderful card, love the sweet little girl. Great layers. Anesha
Thank you very much, dear Anesha. Your visits and the kindness you leave here for me after them never fail to warm my heart – which is all the more needed at the moment given that our temps + weather has been far more Feb/Mar or Oct/Nov than very nearly summertime for the past few weeks.
Not, mind you, that I am complaining. I will almost always take cooler temps over sizzling hot ones.
Sending the sunniest and happiest of wishes for a stellar June your way!
WOWOW! How incredibly beautiful and fun your Halloweenie creation is! Your attention to detail, layers, textures makes me want to celebrate right now, and create my own masterpiece! Truly gorgeous card. And your childhood photo is also darling. Thanks for sharing! hugs, de
What a fabulously kind, heart-warming, and encouraging comment, sweet Donna. Thank you IMMENSELY for your loveliness.
Making this classically festive card + reaching Halfoween has made me all the more eager for fall and Halloween to return. I am grateful through to have a few months still to go so that I can whip up all the more spookily fun craft projects devoted to October 31st.
Really, thank you again.
Scores of hugs,
Oh my gosh, look at you in your adorable witch costume! What a cutie you were! I love the card inspired by this – the image is such a perfect Victorian-era design. You’re so talented!
That is like praise from Caesar, dearest Shelia, really and truly, as you are one incredibly artistically gifted soul yourself.
Thank you very much for your wonderfully kind words and for saying I was a cutie back then. Humbly, I am inclined to agree with you. 🥰
I hope that your June is off to a fantastic start and that it blossoms into the sunniest, loveliest, and happiest of summers. 🌞
Your vintage witch is adorable,I love this style of card as it allows you to have multiple layers and embellishments,the colours,layers and textures on your card are beautiful,there’s so many tiny details to see.
You made an adorable witch,the pic is a wonderful keepsake.
You are exceedingly kind, dear Meg. Thank you wholeheartedly on all fronts.
Rare is the Halloween style or colour palette that I don’t like (if not flat out love), but there will always be something about this super classic, vintage-y combo that feels all the more like October 31st to me (which I know stems in part from the fact that many of the Halloween decorations we had in our house when I was growing up starred the very same palette as this festive card).
Many thanks again, coupled with the absolute happiest of wishes for a sunny, serene, and thoroughly happy June. 🌞
That is a great costume!
Halloween is becoming more popular in Australia. When I was a kid in the 90s we didn’t Trick or Treat. Maybe some people did, but we didn’t. We did get some fabulous free plastic masks from the Supermarket one year and run around playing in them, though!
Aww, what a wonderful memory, dear Laura. Thank you very much for sharing it with me.
So true about Halloween not being widely celebrated outside of North America until fairly recently. Case in point, I (we) lived in Ireland for a couple of years in the mid-2000s and even though we were in Dublin first and then nearby to Cork later, it was very tricky to track down Halloween decor or candy, and we had less than ten trick-or-treaters a year.
From what friends in Ireland have told me in recent years, it seems like Halloween has grown substantially in popularity since then, with products pertaining to it becoming more readily available.
I really hope that the same proves to be the case in Australia as well and that, one day, it will be just as popular there as it is up here in the maple tree-covered wilds of Canada. 😀🎃🧡👻
Fabulously designed card with all your perfect details! I am happy you found our year round Halloween challenge and shared your awesome design with us at Two Old Bats and hope to see you back again and again!!

Sunny wishes for a terrific summer from my heart to yours!
Aww, such a cute card. And you were such a cute kid. 🙂
I’m way behind, because for some strange reason Bloglovin will not show my feed or following, and I have googled a lot to find a solution. Now I’ve changed reader, I’ve had enough.
Wishing you a lovely day. 🙂
Please do not worry for the tiniest of moments. You are not alone there at all, my sweet friend. Bloglovin’ was down for me throughout very nearly the whole of June and as a result, I missed out on about a month’s worth of posts on the blogs I follow regularly.
After some internet sleuthing (it wasn’t front and centre on their platform, as one might expect it to be), I found an email address for Bloglovin and sent them a message several days ago now asking if the platform had been shut down for good. Thus far, I have not received any reply and tend to doubt I will (never say never though).
Like yourself, I am strongly thinking that I will have to change feed readers as well. May I ask, which one did you opt for and how are you liking it so far?
Thank you very much for visiting some of my (slightly) older posts and for your terrific comments. They never fail to brighten my week.
Big hugs & the happiest of wishes for a stellar summer coming your way!
Super sweet Halloween card! Thank you for sharing with us at Two Old Bats Challenge.
It is my absolute pleasure! Thank you in turn for coming by to visit my site. Your comment does not link to a blog, but if you have one of your own and would like to share it with me, please feel free to do so anytime. That way I can return the lovely visit that you paid me.
Sunny wishes for a fantastic summer coming your way,
Ahhh, the witching hour- such a magical time. What a beautifully intriguing card to honor the moment.
And I adored seeing your amazing costume as a young but already firmly established witch. So cute!
Count me in as another of those who is counting the months, weeks, and days til October.
Isn’t it though? I swear, it is the time of the day when (assuming I’m not super sleep deprived upon reaching it) I have the most energy generally coupled with a serious hit of creativity as well.
I have a largely unsubstantiated theory that we are often most drawn to the time of day in which we were born and as I entered the world late in the evening, (following that logic) it only makes sense to me that I would be total night owl! 😊
Aww, thank you very much! I remember pictures being taken (on film back then, of course) for the bulk of my early Halloweens though do not have snaps from each of those magical nights (if indeed they still exist anywhere at this point).
We will be counting down in unison, my dear friend – and all the more so now that we are officially a mere season away from autumn’s glorious return.
Big hugs & the sunniest of wishes for a fantastic July!
Cutie! I love this! I think we would have been childhood friends! I love the witching hour. Love love love this! I also had those shoes!!! Lol Did you also love Carebears and Lite brite and Rainbow Brite and Lady Lovlilocks ( I always liked the witch in that one too!)
Agreed completely! I think that we would have instinctually gravitated towards one another – and given our similar ages, we could have both theoretically attended the same school.
I did indeed have a plush Care Bear (as did my brother) and we adored our Lite Brite. I well recall having a Lady Lovely Locks colouring (or painting) book, but don’t remember actually having one of the dolls themselves – but know I played those of some of my friends while visiting their homes.
That is a toy I have not thought about in ages. Thank you for the lovely stroll down memory lane.
We didn’t get to go to the same school, but the universe happily still saw fit to have our paths cross and that is a very wonderful thing!
Wishing you & your family a sunny, joy-filled long weekend!
Autumn, I am so happy you found our challenge blog! I am sure you will be loving all the amazing entries we get and we can’t wait to see your next one!
Thanks so much for playing with us at Two Old Bats Halloween Challenge!
Thank you so much for the warm welcome! I am elated to have discovered this challenge blog – especially since I already (usually) make one or more Halloween themed papercraft projects a month the whole year through.
I really appreciate your lovely comment and will be popping by to visit your site ASAP. 😀
Sunny wishes for a fabulous July coming your way!
Love your card! Found you at Two Old Bats. Following you and your hashtag on Instagram!
It is awesome to connect with you! Thank you very much for letting me know how you discovered my blog + the super fun #MakeHalloween365 hashtag.
Unfortunately, extremely poor health (nothing to do with Covid) has been greatly impacting my abilities – including how often (and for how long) I am able to get online most weeks.
Therefore, in order to maintain my blog, I have had to put social media pretty much entirely on hiatus for the time being. Hopefully, I can return at some point and continue both posting my own #MakeHalloween365 projects and highlighting (in my Stories) the work of others who use it as well.
Anyhoo, all that to say, again, thank you very much! It is a pleasure to meet you.
(Should you happen to have a blog of your own – none was linked to in your comment here – and would like to share it with me, please feel free to do so anytime and that way I can return the lovely visit you paid me.)
Many wishes for a sunny, fantastic summer!
I settled on The Old Reader, it is free (I really don’t want to pay for more subscriptions!) and quite simple, it reminds a bit of Bloglovin, so I got used to it quickly. Give it a try, and you can login with your Google account, which makes it easier (all those damn passwords). I used the Bloglovin app on my phone where I was able to see the ones I follow to add them to TOR, because I couldn’t see them in browser version either, just a tip. Have a lovely day, dear. 🙂
