“Walking Dead” Inspired Zombie Birthday Cards

Hi bloggers,

We started watching The Walking Dead recently and have not been able to stop. I think it’s safe to say we’ve become somewhat obsessed!
So I decided to make my husband a Walking Dead inspired card for his birthday.

I wanted the card to look like it had been splattered with blood so I used a combination of Fired Brick Distress Stain and red paint to create the effect.
The zombie is cut with my Cricut and I printed the message onto a mat also cut with my Cricut.
I printed the message for the insert onto another mat cut with my Cricut and splattered it with the Distress Stain and paint..
My son loved the card so much I made a second “Walking Dead” inspired zombie card for him to give.

The window image is cut with my Cricut and I placed some acetate behind the window for added effect.

I also added a zombie hand to the insert.

Hope you like my “Walking Dead” Inspired Zombie Birthday Cards.

Until next time... thanks for stopping by,
Pam xx
