Trick or Treat — By LeNae Gerig

Designer Tip: No tricks, just treats! Send spooky greetings to everyone on your list with LeNae's colorful Halloween card. 


For the Card Front:

  1. Place the card with the fold on the left and ink the top and bottom edges black. Ink the top and bottom edges of a 5"x6 1/8" piece of lime textured paper brown and glue centered on the card front.
  2. Cut a 5"x5 1/4" piece of brown stripes paper (stripes running vertically). Cut out alphabet tiles to spell "trick or treat". Alternate between glue and foam tape to attach “trick” across the top and “or treat” across the bottom of the striped paper, overlapping the letters. Add three candy corn brads throughout the alphabet tiles. Glue the striped paper centered on the card front.
  3. Ink the edges of a 2 1/8" square of lime textured paper brown. Mat on white cardstock, trim the to 1/16" and ink the edges black. Add a black mini brad to each top corner of the lime square. Add black cardstock behind the mouth of a Jack-O-Lantern Brad Buddy™, then attach over the lime textured square. Foam tape the square centered between “trick” and “or treat”.

For the Card Inside:

  1. Glue a 3/4"-wide strip of brown stripes paper (stripes running vertically) 1/4" from the top of the card inside, trimming the excess even with the edge of the card.
  2. Write "give me something good to eat!" on the brown tag and glue it to the left end of the strip. Add a black mini brad to the tag's tab and a candy corn brad to the bottom right corner.
