I'm starting in on my Halloween cards, and I couldn't wait to use the cute images on the new Cricut Create a Critter 2 cartridge! Last year I designed a tri-fold Christmas card using my Gypsy, and I thought it would be fun to modify it for a Halloween card. You can see my "how to" video here. I did change the height of the rectangles, so that more of the haunted house would show through. The rectangle with "boo" on it is 1 1/4" tall, and the one with the ghost is 2 1/4" tall. My background paper is kraft cardstock from The Paper Studio at Hobby Lobby. The patterned paper is from the Spooktacular stack from K & Company (last year's release).
"Boo" is cut at 2.79".
I cut the ghost at 3.63". His hat and patch are one cut, but I couldn't leave the hat black, since it would blend into the house. So I cut it again in purple, trimming off the patch before adhering it to the black hat.
The haunted house is cut at 6.04". I did have to flip it to make it line up with the kraft base. You can see when the card is opened up that the liner, which I cut from the Wild Card cartridge, and the house are essentially adhered to the back of the main kraft card base.
