You're the Cutest Little Pumpkin

Today the Polkadoodles Design Team ladies are sharing a few more Halloween / Autumn cards for your inspiration.

I've selected Pumpkin Girl Boo Halloween and made a tri-fold card with the image overlapping the fold.

I made this by cutting the 8 1/2" x 11 cardstock in half lengthwise, then scoring at 4 1/4" and 8 1/2".  The right or bottom flap is covered with orange Boo Ghost digi paper and the left or top flap is covered with the tiny flowers. Both came from the Polkadoodles Halloween Trick or Treat Digital papers

I sized the Pumpkin Girl to about 3 1/2" tall, printed her and colored with my Copic markers. I used an x-stitched dome die to cut as close as I could to the outside of this image.  Since I wanted it flat on the bottom for my ground, I used the straight part of the die and cut part of the shape off to make this x-stitched line.  

From the HalloweenSentiments package, I printed the sentiment 'You're the cutest little pumpkin on the patch'.  Then I carefully trimmed it close to the words and cut it into two pieces to go on the bottom as part of the bottom border. 

I didn't want to add a belly band to keep the card closed so I added a Velcro mini dot to keep it closed for mailing and displaying.

Be sure to check out all the Design Team cards on the Polkadoodles Challenge Blog.  We'd love to see your cards there too.
