All of the shapes used on these silhouette cards are from the dingbat font ILL OCtoBer.
After arranging the Halloween motifs to my satisfaction, I added a frame and welded everything together with CorelDraw.
The effect is like scherenschnitte paper cutting, but far easier to design.

How to assemble flat front card
For all files black lines are cut lines, red lines are score lines. Cut the file, fold on the score line, and back the silhouette with contrasting paper. I used origami paper.
How to assemble window style pop up card
See this post for more information about folding window pop up cards.
For all files black lines are cut lines, red lines are score lines.
Cut the file. With the right side of the card facing you, crease the score lines.
The top horizontal line is a valley fold. The next score line down is a mountain fold. The two small creases forming the center fold line of the card are valley folds. The bottom horizontal line is a valley fold.
Back the window with contrasting paper if you wish.
Remember to fold the backing paper into an L shape to cover the opening on the bottom of the card as well as the opening on the upright portion of the card!
Glue the window pop up into a base card of coordinating or contrasting color. See an example here.
