Free Halloween Bingo Cards to Download - Part 1

Well, fall is here, and I've finally gotten around to designing some Halloween Bingo cards to use in my card making. Ginny (Polly's Paper Studio) and Gloria (Scraps of Life) are two of my favorite artists. Their vintagy looking holiday cards are the ones I could gaze at forever. Their style is fantastic and richly layered (and really hard for me to emulate), but I took courage in hand, and tried making some of my own cards based on their style.
 

At the end of this post are two sheets of my Bingo cards ready to print on 81/2"X11" cardstock. Because this post would be too long if I shared everything today, I will have two additional posts featuring more cards, and each of the Bingo cards as separate images for resizing and printing. The links below each card are the links for the focal images. The sources used in designing the Bingo cards, are revealed in the two following posts.
 
*The Graphics Fairy*
Darling Cat Face

There just aren't enough places to incorporate this super adorable cat image. I used some black flocking on it, but it does make him look a bit mangy, since I don't quite have my flocking technique purrfected. (See another card using this cutie here.)

The wide linen ribbon with stripes is from May Arts, and Ginny uses it gloriously. The felt behind the button is from Papertrey's "Button Stacks Die" and Poppy Stamps "Small Blooming Poinsettia Die".
 
(This Ghost Lady was saved many years ago, but they have the best images!)

The black swirls are a cut apart Die-namics "Large Fancy Flourish" die cut. (This is such a versatile die.) The ribbon is Hug Snug seam binding topped with black heavy button thread.

Scared Girl with Cat

The details include a glittered ghost by Recollections (Michaels brand) and dies from Impression Obsession and Memory Box.

I've been experimenting around with the inside of my cards, and if you would like a load of inspiration, Gloria would be your muse. The dies used were Papertrey's Wonderful Words: Holiday Die Collection and One Liners: Happy Die. The cute little bat (over the "i") is from the Impression Obsession die above.

Bat Lady

This batty lady is colored with Spectrum Noir alcohol markers, and further adored with black glitter and rhinestones. The top edge is punched with Martha Stewart (discontinued) and the lacy die behind the buttons, is Papertrey.

Now for the Bingo Card Downloads. Right click and choose "Save As". If printed at 100%, each will fit on an 81/2" X 11" surface. I like to use 60# cover stock to print these.


 To use a single or self-sized card, see the following two posts.


If these appeal to you, and you would like to have more for other holidays, be sure to leave me a comment, and I will do my best to create some more. Thanks so very much for visiting.

  3. I would like to use these for my classroom during our fall festival. How many different cards or card combinations would I get? And how do I download or make my own numbers to be drawn? Or are these cards just for looks?

  4. I would like to have at least 20 kids playing at one time.

    1. Thanks for your inquiry, JJ. I use to teach school, so I'm flattered that you are interested in these cards. Alas, they are for crafting, so what you see, is what you get. There are MANY downloads for Halloween bingo cards that I've run across in Google, and some are designed for precisely your need.

      Have a wonderful time with your students this Halloween. It sounds like that is a forgone conclusion.
