Girl Monster Halloween Card

This Halloween monster card is really cute.  It was inspired by something I saw on Pinterest.  I changed it and made it mine.  The boy versionof the card  is cute too and is here.  It has stripes instead of spots and no bow.  Either card could be made for a girl or boy by changing the color of the paper used.

This Girl Monster Halloween card uses a font I created myself. Read about my Fill in Fonts here.  If you don’t have my fonts yet and if you don’t change the writing at all it should work.  It was tiring with of fonts not filling in when I draw them.

What you need:

The difficult part of this 5 fold card is the actual folding.  Once you get it folded it is amazing.

Paper Selection 
 The base looks best in a solid color.  Cover pieces, like the teeth, look very good with a pattern.  .  For the rest, use your imagination.  

 

 

Cutting the Card

Cut out all the pieces.  Remember, don’t change the writing or weld it and everything should stay put.  Or you could get my Fill in Fonts here

Once the base card is cut, re-score the folds with a Popsicle stick. It gets  a little tricky because some folds go all the way through and some don’t. First, tuck the inside triangles in individually.  Then fold the edges. Lastly, fold and work the card a few times to make it easier to operate.

Assembly

First glue all the background triangles and panels onto the card.  Those are the darker pink and black on mine. The teeth are glued under the pink panels and hang over the edge a little.  Follow the picture to see what goes where.  Then glue the eyes and spots to the card with liquid glue.  

Fold the bow ends to the center of the bow and glue them down.  Wrap the little piece around the center and glue it.  Then glue the bow to the card.  

Once the card is assembled, fold it closed and notice how the teeth  laps over the other half.  This card does’t want to stay closed so you can tie a ribbon around it or use one of the decorative bands in one of my other tutorials  or just put it in an  A7 envelope.

Your Girl Monster Halloween Card is finished.  Enjoy! Tomorrow is the boy card.  Here is a link and a preview picture.
