Z fold Halloween Card


a few nights ago I was trying to figure out how to make a z-fold card. I cut out my cardstock, folded it, and then got distracted by something shiny.
This morning I saw that the Cricut Cardz Challenge was to make a Halloween card in a Zfold shape, so there was motivation to finish my card.

I don't have any Halloween papers, but I did just buy the pumpkin carving cartridge, so I decided to use that, and green and purple for my colors. It's a little plain, but I think it's pretty cute and I love the non traditional Halloween colors!
Web and Trick or Treat are from Pumpkin Carvings Cartridge
Spider is from Potpourri Basket Cartridge
Ribbon is from Michaels 2 for $1 bin
Striped paper is from DCWV Summer Dream Stack (which is on major sale right now at JoAnn's! 180 sheets of cuteness for $7.97)
Purple glitter glue G company from JoAnns dollar spot

  1. This is fantastic, Angela. I don't think it's necessary to have a bunch of Halloween papers. Highly over rated if you ask me, and your card proves it. Great job with the Z-fold matching up your spider web, love it.

    Kaity-I used this one that I found on youtube, but I only watched the first few minutes to get the measurements :) (11X4 1/4, fold at 2 3/4 and 5 1/2)
