Fun Halloween Cardmaking Tutorial


 Hello, friends! It’s Nancy here with a fun Halloween Cardmaking Tutorial!

This time I am sharing how I made two simple Halloween-themed cards,
using some great digital files from the shop. 

Here are my cards:

Cute, right?

When you purchase a file from Printable Cuttable Creatables,
they come with many different options.

For example, the cute Cat in a Pumpkin File includes:

  • SVG file Assembled
  • SVG file Separated
  • PNG Clipart file in Four Image Variations

That means a lot of creative options with one file purchase!
So much fun!

Here’s how I made my cards:

I began with the Halloween Treats Digital Paper Pack.

These papers are sized to print out at 12 x 12 – but you can resize them.

When I print two on an 8 1/2 x 11 page, they come out as 5″ squares.

This makes them perfect for an A2 card.

I then chose my design files:

Stacked Jack O Lanterns SVG File.

Using my Cricut Explore Air, and Cricut Design Space,

I sized both png files at 4 1/4″ tall.

I then used the print/cut option with my Cricut.

I then used some Distress Ink to ink around the edges of the cuts.

This covers up the white edges and also gives the flat cuts some extra dimension.

Then I went back to the printed papers.

I chose two cardstock colors that matched the papers.

I cut tent-fold A2 card bases, then cut my printed papers to fit the front.

That left me with a small strip of paper. 

I added that to the inside of the card.

Here’s a closer look at each card:

I added the pumpkin image to the card front using foam tape.

I then added several matching sequins.

I added the cat image to the card front using foam tape.

I applied glossy accents to the cat’s eyes to make them shine.

I also added a small ribbon bow.
