Welcome to some Cutting Cafe Inspiration! This time around Regina let us pick any file we wanted to work with and I chose this beautiful Acorn Shaker Card that you can get in this cool set of Halloween and Fall Shaker Cards! The set includes this acorn, candy, boo pumpkin and ghost shaker cutting files!! Not to mention a few adorable sentiments for each! I chose some old retired CTMH papers for this one.. I love the touch of blue that's in it and how it brightens up all of the other fall colors!
I used some stickers from the paper pack, some paper flowers and stamens from my stash, and that pretty gold twine from FSJ to decorate mine! And lots and lots of sequins... I made this mix using all kinds of sequins and beads in my stash.. and lucky that the bead mix I used just happened to have a touch of blue in it AND love the way those shimmery sequins also reflect some of that blue color!
I chose a sentiment from the paper rather than one of the printables, but I have no doubt I'll use those on other autumn cards! I just print them out and they're ready for whatever project I want to use them on!
These shaker card files are so fun and easy to put together! I just pull the SVG version into my Design Space; size according to the included PDF and then choose what color I want to cut each of the layers out of! The set also includes some leaves that I didn't cut out this time because I wasn't using green... although now that I'm thinking about it... I could have cut them out in a fall color or from some of my previously watercolored papers!!! Next time!!
Thanks so much for stopping by! Hope if you've never used an SVG file with your Cricut you'll give these a try! Regina's files also come in other formats... including PDF, MTC, and WPC! (I don't know what a couple of those are but I'm sure someone out there does and needs them!...lol)
