Directions

Cut windows in the front of the card blank and the 4”x 5” Sedona cardstock so there are ” frames left all around on both pieces. Place ⅜” Terrifically Tacky Tape on the inside of the card blank frame. Lay the wire screen over this and cover with the cardstock frame, trimming where necessary.

Stamp either the skeleton or ghost image on the white cardstock. Stamp the words "Trick o’ Treat" or "BOO!" above the image. (Check first to see that it will show in the door frame).

Make a small bag from the printed paper and twine. Glue it to the skeleton’s hand.

For the ghost card, glue on the plastic candy corn and use the sponge applicator to rub around the ghost image with chalk or ink.

Attach the decorated white cardstock to the card blank with Heiko or Herma tape. Place a strip of ⅜” Terrifically Tacky Tape on the outside top of the card. Press the ribbon onto this tape leaving two equal lengths of ribbon on the sides. Randomly put the confetti on the top of the ribbon adding more tape if necessary. With tiny pieces of Heiko or Herma tape adhere the side ribbons twisting them slightly.

Attach a stud or brad to the front of the card in the doorknob position. Tape the cardstock strip on the door front being careful not the obscure ghost or skeleton.
