I had so much fun designing this year's invitation to our annual Halloween bash - everything from the wording to last minute sparks of creativity. I wanted it to look like an authentic spirit board. Luckily I was able to track down a high resolution scan of the Parker Brothers Ouija board game that I modified with custom text. I downloaded the Captain Howdy font here.
Here's a closer look of the inside wording. I blurred out our address for privacy purposes :)
You got a little sneak peak of the outside of the invite from my latest 365 post. Disney Haunted Mansion fans will surely recognize this little rhyme from the Madame Leota seance scene. Adding the kraft paper band was a total afterthought but I love how the quote works with the spirit theme.
Even Mr. Poli was impressed.
Interesting fact about me: I've never actually used a Ouija board! The closest I've gotten to communing with 'the other side' was playing 'Light as a feather, stiff as a board' at a friend's sleepover when I was 11.
