I made a Halloween S~Fold card after seeing some cute ones on the Cricut Message board. I did not search out the instructions (I have a hard time following directions anyway) so I just played around a bit.
I ended up with a 5x12 piece of black cardstock. I scored the paper at 3 inches and 6 inches. I folded the card in half and then folded the top flap the opposite way.
With my Gypsy, I used George & Basic shapes to cut the purple paper 5 5/8 x 4 5/8. Note: you can use a paper cutter to make these cuts if you choose. I cut two pieces of the candy paper 2 3/4 x 4 5/8. I glued the paper onto the card.
I used papers from this mat stack from K&Co that I bought at Michaels.
I cut a piece of lime green cardstock 5 5/8 x 4 5/8 and tore it to create a hill. I inked the edges with a green stamp pad.
I found the Haunted House on October 31 and the Ghost on Mini Monsters. I decided to use stickles for the eyes and mouth on the ghost.
I do not have a huge collection of rubber stamps, but really needed a sentiment on this card. I decided to make my own with my Cri-Kits gel pen. I put a green rectangle on the card and then sized a smaller white rectangle on my Gypsy. I opened another Layer and put the word BOO from Calligraphy Collection right in the center of the rectangle.
I put the black gel pen inside the Cri-Kits holder. I took the blade housing out of my Cricut and replaced it with the Cri-Kits holder.
I selected the cut option for the Layer with the word Boo on it. You can see here how the word printed.
When the Cricut is finished with BOO, select Return to Design.
Put a piece of scrap paper on your paper under the gel pen as you remove the Cri-Kits housing and replace the blade housing. This prevents unwanted pen marks on your paper.
Once the blade is replaced, change the layer to the rectangle and cut. Here is what it looks like.
I inked the edges with black.
And here is the card all put together. I glued orange crystals on the Ghost's eyes. I glued the Ghost half-way on the first fold. This was my first S~Fold card, the first of many!!!
