Shhh, don't tell anyone I am here ;) I have been whining that I want to go out and do something exciting. So we set some time aside for it, and now I don't feel like going. Isn't it funny the way things happen like that?
Anyhow, I'd rather come here and share a tiny lil' treat with you. A free downloadable Halloween Card. Click here for Printable PDF File - it might take several seconds to open. Takes me 30 seconds.
You get two per sheet, and can print out as many as you wish... My Mom and Aunt send us Halloween cards every year. I think that is so much fun!!
This is a foldable card. I printed it with regular printer paper, which looks just fine, but a nice matte cardstock prints even lovelier. And gives a nice sturdyness for folding and scalloping. Although I like the card without scallops as well.
Because I can be a tad nutty, I even made you a silly little totally homemade printable envelope. Click here for printable envelope template. Upon printing, simply flip the vertical page once, clockwise, for view below. (for glue edges, I like to use a glue stick or double stick tape)
It is a funny shape due to the printer paper size constraint. But if you cut the edge of the tabs all the way to the edge of your printer paper, your envelope will turn out even better. You will understand what I mean when you print yours. Example below.
Let me take a sec to put in my two cents on the envelopes...
Once they are cut out you might find a gap at the end where the tabs meet.
A little of that can be taken care of by trimming the tabs all the way to the end the paper, as previously stated.
However, I find that if you cut right along the lines and "do" end up with this gap, a sticker could easily remedy that. Or, you could even punch a hole in each tab and then tie them shut with a ribbon.
I love this cute little parcel effect...
I don't know about you, but wonky tabs don't matter to me, as long as I get a perfect lil' cardlette fit...
So, there you have it. A wee Halloween Gift.
By the way, In the right hand side bar you will find a new album called "Free Treats." This album holds a bunch of the free printable items I have shared in the past. Along with the blog link and the PDF link. Simply click on image for details. I know there are some others. I just have to look for them...
I best be on my way. Looks like I still might have to go do something fun and exciting. Hee hee. Maybe I need a few new pumpkins too. Mine are getting pretty freaky...
