Halloween Cards

Here is a quick and easy way to make customizable jack-o-lantern cards this Halloween! All you will need to do this project is:

a printer
Cardstock in your preferred color (I used Orange, how traditional of me)
black permanent marker

I started with this clip art image from You could very easily do something other than a pumpkin/jack-o-lantern by searching for other clip art images online.

Next, I stretched my pumpkin out a little in photoshop and I wanted something shorter and fatter (to match my envelope). Then I used my print preview to position it on the page so that when I print it out, I will have enough excess paper to have a fold on the left side. Print and cut out and you will have something like this (note that I folded so the left side of my pumpkin was on the fold line and I did not cut on the fold):

Add your desired jack-o-lantern face and now it is more like this:

You can easily make these with a different face for each jack-o-lantern and use them as greeting cards or party invitations. :)

Happy Halloween!
