Floating Pumpkin Halloween Card with Acetate Sheet
This Floating Pumpkin Halloween Card celebrates Fall! It uses an acetate window sheet, which isn’t just for shaker cards. See how to make one of these cards here.
When I have designer series paper, or DSP, that I absolutely love, I’ll often create my card around it instead of the other way around. The coordinating colors in the paper help determine the cardstock and the theme.
Similarly, the falling and floating leaves in this DSP from the host pack Celebrate Everything gave me the idea for this pumpkin!
While the window acetate sheets are often used for shaker cards, we can use them to make floating elements like this pumpkin, too!
TIP: Window sheets aren’t just for shaker cards; try using one for a floating element!
See below for how to create a halloween card with a floating pumpkin:
How to make a Floating Pumpkin Halloween Card:
Cut your cardstock:
- Pumpkin Pie
- 4-1/4” x 8-1/2”, scored at 5-1/2”. Then cut 1-1/2” off from the short edge and save it.
- Scraps for pumpkin
- Basic Black: 2 pieces 4-1/8” x 1-3/8”
- DSP: 2 pieces 4” x 1-1/4”
- Window Acetate Sheet: 5-1/2” x 4-1/4”
- Adhere each of the DSP pieces to a black piece. Then glue one to the top flap of your card, and the other to the Pumpkin Pie piece you cut off and saved. This will be the bottom of your card front.
- Then apply adhesive to the top of your window acetate sheet and adhere it flush behind the front flap. Next, apply adhesive to the bottom of your window acetate sheet and press the bottom piece of your card front flush to the bottom.
Make the Pumpkin Float:
- Die-cut three ovals from Pumpkin Pie cardstock. Stamp one of the ovals with your sentiment (This Trick or Treat stamp is from the September 2022 Paper Pumpkin kit, Spooky Treats). Glue the other two ovals to the back of either side of the middle stamped oval to make the pumpkin.
- Using glue dots, adhere your pumpkin to the front of your card.
