How To Create A Not-So-Spooky Halloween Card

Are you looking for a Halloween card idea that is a little less spooky and a little more sweet? How about a card that’s bright & colorful and has some fun texture with Nuvo Drops too?!

Design Ambassador Carly Tee Minner is here today to share a not-so-spooky Halloween card that uses Nuvo Drops in two fun ways!

I love Halloween!!! For me it’s really all about the cute pumpkins and CANDY so accordingly my Halloween cards tend to be cute and candy-colored 😉

Today I have a clean & simple Halloween card design to share that is silly not spooky!

Here is a quick cardmaking process video…


  • Don’t have any Nuvo Drops? Try Glossy Accents, Glimmer Paste or specialty cardstock.
  • Make eyes with Nuvo Drops on a non-stick craft sheet (and not directly on your project) in case you mess up. And make extra!
  • Make eyes at the end of your crafting sessions so they can dry overnight, then you can pop them off the craft sheet the next day and adhere to your project with a little glue.
  • This goofy design isn’t just for Halloween, with the right colors (like the orange & pink) it would make a funny Valentine!
