This says Halloween, it doesn’t need a sentiment on the front. My directions include some hints to remove fold lines from the container paper.

Card Base: Cut Pumpkin PIe 8 ½ X 11 paper in half widthwise. You now have two pieces 8 ½ X 5 ½ . Fold one of the pieces in half lengthwise for your card front. The card front now measures 4 ¼ X 5 ½.

Card Mat: Cut Basic Black paper 4 X 5 1/4

Card Front: Cut Whisper White paper 3 7/8 X 5 ⅛

Cut the center part of the cracker container, it measures 2 ½ X 5 1/16. To remove the strong fold lines in this piece I first rubbed the bone folder over it. Then I embossed it with the Subtle embossing folder. You could use any embossing folder that gives an overall texture.

Attach embossed striped piece from cracker container to Whisper White card front ¼” from left edge of Whisper White card front. Trim off any excess of embossed striped piece from top and bottom using white card front as a cutting guide.

Attach white card front to black card mat. Attach these to card base.

Use the largest stitched circle to die cut circle from Bumblebee paper. Attach to the upper portion of the card front. Attach black cat from the Paper Pumpkin kit to stitched circle with dimensionals.

That’s it; you have finished your card front. Wasn’t that easy? For the inside of your card, cut a piece of Whisper White 4 X 5 ¼. Stamp a sentiment or write a note before attaching this piece inside your card.
