Ghost Silhouette Window Card

I've made quite a few of these little window pop up cards. Some Halloween, some Christmas, some others here and here.

This greeting card has some ghosts. I borrowed the 3-ghost layout idea from a pennant on Bird's Cards. The ghost is the letter O dingbat from the Trick or Treat font. I modified the ghost a bit!

Cut and score.  On the PDF and JPG, cut lines are black, score lines are red.

Starting at the top, with the "good" side of the card facing you: valley fold the top score line; mountain fold the next score line; valley fold the two small score lines on the sides, near the bottom of the window; valley fold the score line at the bottom of the window.

Collapse the card and glue it into a base card.  Glue the center parts of the letters A, P, and O into the letters.
