Insert the Pumpkin Pie rectangle into the Stylish Scroll Embossing Folder. Use the line drawn on the front of the folder to help you line the cardstock up straight. Place the folder with the paper inside on your die cutting and embossing tool and run through the machine.
Adhere the strip of books design Monster Bash Designer Paper to the bottom of the dry embossed Pumpkin Pie rectangle.
Use the Fine-Tip Glue Pen or Multipurpose Liquid Glue to adhere the thin strip of Sahara Sand Cardstock to the Pumpkin Pie/designer paper rectangle so it covers the seam between the two pieces.
Adhere the dry embossed Pumpkin Pie rectangle with designer paper and cardstock attached to the front of the Crushed Curry card.
Mount the "Eat, Drink, & Be Scary" sentiment from the Spooktacular Bash Set on Block B. Ink it up with the Soft Suede Ink Pad. Stamp it near the right end of the strip of Crushed Curry Cardstock towards the top. Leave room to punch the sentiment out.
Unlock the 2" Circle Punch. Hold it upside down so you can see the punching area. Slide the stamped sentiment into the punch and get it centered in the punching area so it is on the upper right side of the circle. Punch.
Adhere the sentiment circle punch out to the front of the card so it is about 2" from the right side and about 1/4" from the top.
If you haven't already done so, cut out the stack of two book spines from the Monster Bash Designer Paper by hand using Paper Snips.
Adhere the cut out book spines to the front of the card so they cover the lower right side of the sentiment circle punch out.
If you haven't already done so, cut out a book cover from the Monster Bash Designer Paper by hand using Paper Snips.
Use Black Stampin' Dimensionals to adhere the book cover cut out to the front of the card at a slight angle so it overlaps the left side of the sentiment circle punch out and the left side of the stack of 2 book spines.
Cut a 3" piece of Crushed Curry 3/8" Crinkled Seam Binding Ribbon. Tie a half knot in the center of the ribbon. Trim the ends.
Use a Mini Glue Dot to adhere the ribbon knot to the front of the card so it is centered under the book cover cut out.
Use the mini spatula on the Take Your Pick tool to pick up a large gray circle shape and two small gray circle shapes from a sheet of Monster Bash Enamel Shapes being sure to get the adhesives as well. Adhere them to the front of the card in the upper right corner.
