Today is the day the Design Team gets together at The Cutting Cafe blog
with our "SHAKER" cards for Halloween and/or Autumn!

I have to say Regina, the designer  and the owner of  The Cutting Cafe
has created the most fun and cutest shaker card files..!!
They come in a PDF format, so if you don't have a cutting machine
you can still use them, by cutting by hand.

The one I used today is from the Halloween Shaker Cards Set.
You can purchase them individually or as a set

I finally used my new  Cricut Explore to cut my card.
That machine has been sitting on my desk for over a year,
and I decided at last minute to "dust it off"
and use it!
I think it has intimidated me way too long!!

I watched a few videos (Regina has one as well) to show me
how to bring SVG files into it.....
I think I am going to love that thing...
it cut those spider legs out so fast and!

Speaking of spiders....
isn't this just the cutest shaker card??

I made mine "girlie" by adding a bow to her head.
I didn't stop there  though,
I sponged ink around her head and eyes,
and added google eyes to her...
I was thinking (scarey I know) that wouldn't she be cute
with fake eyelashes....too funny!!

I did print the "eek" ring on my printer,
then used Memory Box Stitched Circle die
to cut it out both on the inside of
the ring and outside
(love those stitches on the outer ring)!

Her shaker contents has the cutest little ghost and pumpkin inside
as well as sequins and glitter!

Well, now I hope you will visit The Cutting Cafe and see what
the rest of the DT has to inspire you....check out all the shaker cards
on the store site...they are "fabby"!!
