Make a cute and fun haunted house Halloween card with easy to use dies!

When I saw the Fall House Accessories die set from Rubbernecker, I knew I wanted to make a fun – not scary – haunted house Halloween card. I think this came out really cute and makes me think more of Casper the Friendly Ghost than any of those super creepy horror movies! I used that Fall House Accessories, paired with the Tabbed House, Inside Scalloped Frame and Grass.

A handmade haunted house Halloween card with a more cheerful, fun vibe.

Card Base, Frame and Grass

  • Cut an A2 sized card base using lavender cardstock.
  • Use purple cardstock to cut the scalloped frame and light green cardstock to cut the grass section.
  • Attach the grass section to the frame using double stick tape.
  • Apply strips of mounting tape all the way around the back of the frame and attach it to the card base.

House Base Parts

To make my Halloween House I assembled the house base parts that include house, gable, windows, door, brick and porch columns , roof and steps.  Here is a shot of all the parts and pieces you will get with this die set – you can see how you can create endless custom looks with all these different elements!

House Parts

  • Use orange and black cardstock to cut the house base and gable sections.
  • Cut the windows, door, roof, columns, railing and brick using black cardstock.
  • Attach the brick and wood porch columns together using Connect glue.
  • Use Connect glue to attach the porch side roof and gable using to the porch columns.  
  • Attach the brick porch foundation, porch columns and porch side roof together using double stick tape.
  • Apply mounting tape pieces to the back of the gable, porch columns and foundation and attach them to the house base.  Pro Tip:  By assembling the porch sections together first allows you to see exactly where they fit on the house.
  • Attach the roof sections using glossy accents.
  • Use glossy accents to attach the door and windows.
  • Attach pieces of mounting tape to the back of the house, tuck it in behind the grass and attach to the card base.

Two die sets from Rubbernecker create the house and the fun seasonal details on this cute and sweet haunted house Halloween card.

Halloween Pieces

  • Use black cardstock to cut the tree and cats.
  • Attach the tree to the card base using mounting tape.
  • Attach the tiny cats to the grass and window using small pieces of mounting tape.
  • Use orange cardstock to cut the tiny pumpkins and use a black marker to draw in the jack-o-lantern faces.
  • Attach the jack-o-lanterns to the grass section using glossy accents.
  • Use light green cardstock to cut the ghosts and attach them to the house and card base using small pieces of mounting tape.
