- Stamp pumpkin on small orange cardstock using black ink.
- Fussy cut out pumpkin image.
- Print Happy Halloween using your computer on vellum. Cut it out, then cut a 1/4 inch larger orange mat. Cut a black mat 1/4 inch larger than the orange one. My sizes for this are above but you may need to adjust to your font choice.
- Attach the orange mat to the black one using adhesive.
- Attach the vellum to the orange and black mat assembly using black eyelets in each corner. Hint: Mark the corner positions using a pencil before you punch them out so you get them all placed correctly. If you don't want eyelets, brads are an easier alternative to get the same effect.
- Dry fit the strip, pumpkin stack and words as shown in the image to positions that work for the words you printed out. You want all three border areas (top to words, words to pumpkins and pumpkins to bottom) to be the same.
- Attach the word assembly using dimensional foam. This helps prevent the back of the eyelets or brads from leaving an impression inside the card when its open.
- Adhere the black strip, then the pumpkin stack on top of it.
