Ghost Cards 

Ghost Card Close-up



  • Ghost stamp
  • White craft foam
  • Postcard-size card stock
  • Thin, bendable wire
  • Thin dowel or large nail
  • Wire cutter
  • Tape


  1. Wrap wire. Cut a small length of thin, bendable wire (about 4 or 5 inches is fine). Leave a 1-inch “tail” and then begin wrapping the wire around a thin dowel or large nail. You will want to wrap about 10 coils before leaving another tail.
  2. Insert wire. Cut the wire to size, being careful of the rough ends. Carefully insert one end of the spring into the ghost image until you reach the coils. Punch a very small hole in the top layer of your invitation and insert the loose end of the spring. Secure this end with tape.
  3. Mount invite. Mount the printed invitation to a piece of postcard-sized card stock and it is ready to be inserted into an envelope.

The smaller your spring coils, the easier it will be for the pop-up to lay flat.
