Stairstep Halloween card with October31 and Pumpkin Carving

I was camping this week and took along my "to make for Christmas" pile to start planing (yes, I know, its still summer) and I came across a stair step card.  It instantly made me think of the images on the October31 cart (which I had yet to use), so I came home and made a card.  I've made a little video (practice, practice) for those who like to see the step by step, and I've put the DS file below.  You don't need DS to make stair step cards, but I wanted the gate to fit just right, so I had to tweek it a bit.   The starting base is 4.25 by 7.5 inches and scored at  1, 2, 3.25, 4.5, and 6 inch (NOT 5 like I say in the video).  Thanks for looking!

My address is Paperscissorsinc@comcast.net

send me yours and I'll email the file to you direct - or just stretch the gate so that it is about 4 by 4.75 inches-that will make it so it fits in an a2 envelope.

Love the card! Amazing! I have MTC and I am not able to open your download in my program. Any idea as to why? Thanks =)

This is a DS file, not svg, so it will not work with MTC or SCAL, sorry :(
