A friend was making a notebook for her boyfriend, filling it with lots of cute little phrases and doodles. I thought this sentiment deserved a card, so I drew a ghost using Adobe Illustrator and made it into a pop-up card.
After I created the “BOO-st of Positivity” card, another friend asked for one to give her brother because Halloween is his birthday!
I also made a version that says “Have a SPOOK-tacular Day!”
This is a simple design. You can cut out the eyes and mouth, use your Cricut to draw the shapes on, or simple hide the layers if you prefer to draw them on by hand. (Googly eyes would also be cute!)
Be sure to change the correct line to “Score” on the ghost and Attach the eyes and mouth to the body.
The card front and back should import into Cricut’s Design Space with the score line already attached to the correct layer.
I had my Cricut Maker write out the text on the card. You could also use vinyl or even HTV to cut the letters out.
Fold the ghost on the scored lines.
Apply a thin layer of glue on the front of each tab. Fold the ghost (so the glue is facing out) and position so that the whole ghost is inside the card, and the tip of the center fold of the ghost is against the center fold of the card.
Press the card down (closed) to glue the tabs in the correct position.
Open the card, and your ghost should pop right up!
