Thanks for stopping by!  Today over at Cricut Cardz Challenge - we have begun our Challenge #44 which is to make a Z-Fold or some call it S-Fold Halloween card using any colors and Cricut cartridges we wanted.

  • Card base:  Orange Value Pack card (pre-scored for easy folding!)  The front cover is folded back onto itself to make the Z-Fold.
  • Background starry night paper from Karen Foster Designs, Biggie Bundle, Throughout the Year #3
  • The front panel background paper is cut @ 5 1/4" x 1 7/8"
  • The inside background paper is cut @ 5 1/4" x 4"
  • The pumpkin man (doesn't he look so happy?!) is from a Cricut Cut swap I did with a couple of ladies.  My ruler says he's 4".  I added a black button and some orange jute to him.
  • The grass came from my extra cut file.  I think it's from Mickey & Friends.  It was much longer than this, I just cut it long enough for him to sit behind.
  • Ribbon from Michael's.  I let the lighter flame barely touch the ends.  This hardens the ends and keeps them from fraying.  Just a second.  Don't go crazy and burn your ribbon up.
  • I used some Rub-Ons from Target's $1 bin to rub on "All Hallow's Eve" on the front panel.  
Hop over and join in the fun!  We'd love to see a Z-Fold Cricut Halloween card you make!

Loving it Janis!! The pumpkin is too cute! Confession... I have never put a button on a card on scrapbook page - don't even own any! Today I am heading to my LSS to remedy that :) Cause they are a cute embellishment I need to start using. TFS
