Halloween card using Cricut Wild Card

I did this envelope from Cricut Wild Card at fit to page on a 12 x 12 piece of cardstock and then did the card at the size it showed (think it was 3 1/2 or 3 5/8, something like that). I used some old Debbie Mumm halloween paper to line the envelope and it turned out to look great with this card. I cut one pumpkin layer option and two of the the stem and grass layer. To get an orange pumpkin for the envelope, I placed the orange cardstock on the mat where the pumpkin was to cut (thank goodness for DS!) and that saved me a lot of wasted orange paper (rather than having to cut out a whole envelope and trim off the pumpkin). I used just a scrap of yellow to put between the black and orange layers on both the card and the envelope. The "Pumpkin Patch" sign is from October 31 and I just put a scrap of white paper behind it to make the cut out letters show better. The sentiment is from a My Favorite Things stamp set. This makes a small card and envelope but it will fit in an A2 size envelope for mailing.
