Halloween Z-Box Fold Card

Hi, Lois here at the start of a new month  It's October -- time for colorful leaves, pumpkins, and Halloween!  Halloween is what I'm bringing you today.  CottageCutz has a brand-new release of really cool Halloween dies -- currently on sale at 25% off, along with their Christmas (Part 3) release.

I'm a big fan of fun-fold cards, and my card today is a relatively simple fun-fold card -- a Z-Box Fold card, using two of the new Halloween dies.

To start the card, cut cardstock and patterned paper as follows:

Black - 4 1/4" x 5 1/2"
Orange - 4" x 9 3/4"
Patterned paper - 4 3/8" x 2 7/8"
Patterned paper - 7/8" x 5 1/8" (one piece), 7/8" x 2 1/8" (two pieces)

Place the orange cardstock in your paper trimmer with the short side at the top and place the long side at the 1" mark.  Cut a 1" slit from the 3" mark down to the 7 1/2" mark.  

Place the cardstock in your scoring board and score down to the cut line at the 3" mark, up from the bottom at the 7 1/2" mark, and all the way through at the 5 1/8" mark.

Place Scor-Tape on the back of the largest section of the orange cardstock, as shown.

Fold on the score lines and adhere to the black 4 1/4" x 5 1/2" panel.

Cut three ghosts from the die.

Color and construct the ghosts.

Cut the Spooky Garland from a scrap of black cardstock.

Adhere the patterned paper to the card base and sponge around the front panel.  Add the ghosts and garland, and your card is completed.
