I totally fell in love with Mary's September Scenes Stand Up Cards over at SVGCuts.com; however, my wallet screams "EMPTY" when I open it, so I tried to make my own, for Halloween, and came up with this:
This is a photo of the card, opened almost all the way. The top picture is the inside and the bottom picture shows the outside. It uses a 6"x12" piece of card stock to cut the base, so you do need to have the Cricut Expression to cut this one.
The pic shows my test cuts, so the final svg files have a few minor changes to it. In my photo, the house door is cut out, but I have changed the yellow layer file to cover the opening, so it would be yellow like the windows when put together. Also, the cats on my card in the pic are not part of the base card cut, but I've included the svg file to cut the cats as part of the base. and there is a separate file in the download to cut the base without the cats. :) That way, you can choose whichever way you like best! (The cats are also a file, by themselves, should you wish to add them to the card on the fence as if they're walking on the ground).
Below are additional pictures of the card from different angles. Hope you like!
This is the back of the card, when it's folded closed. It measures 5" x 5" when it's closed.

And a view of the fence with the tree.
Notice that both sides of this are decorated. The SVG File Download has all the cuts, for both sides, included. No need to duplicate and flip things - I've done it for you. :)
I used my Cuttlebug for embossing the house (Diamonds in the Rough) and the trees (Forest Branches), and then I did some inking to everything except the cats.
This file is no longer available as a freebie!
